Here's To Better Health

In case you're new around here, I was really sick for most of the month of July. I think that was the kick in the ass I needed to get back in shape. I've really let myself go by eating like crap, not exercising, and subsequently weighing more than I ever have in my life. It can't be good for my immune system. Last week, I went back to Weight Watchers. Yes, back. I did the program several years ago and lost more than 50 pounds. I just didn't maintain it. I didn't realize that I had to keep doing it (duh!), so here I am, in worse shape than ever, and starting over. At least I can start over and that's what I've done.

My first week was pretty successful and I'm already feeling a little better. So many things are chaotic in my life right now and I feel like what I to eat and how much I exercise are definitely things I can control. I don't plan on turning this into a 'monitor my weight loss' blog, but if I politely refuse to eat certain things, you'll know why. That's the beauty of Weight Watchers though...I can eat (or drink) anything I want, as long as I account for it.

*Wow, this post isn't very snarky or dorky. I'll try to do better.

Keep us informed. My wife and I were thinking about doing Weight Watchers, but we're contemplating doing the pirate trial for now (we copied a lot of their materials from my sister-in-law, so we have the basics, but not the support group/weigh in/recipe exchange thing).

Good Luck :)

Is it that time of the year? Dave and I are also going towards Weight Watchers right now though we may try a modified something else first (and then fail and go back to WW). And I know what you mean about writing about weight loss on the blog. I have been thinking about starting another private weight-loss blog to give meyself a little daily monitoring and motivation. Would do it on Live Journal instead of Blogspot though and set up the privacy either just for me or for a group of "friends" doing the same thing. Better than weight watchers meetings with complete strangers!

Wow! 50 lbs the first round. That's so awesome. Good luck with it!

I follow your plight...same story, different girl, except I haven't found the gumption to get back on the bandwagon yet, soon hopefully.

Hurray for your successful week and cheers to many more!!
