I'm lookin' to be kept on the straight and narrow.
It's certainly no secret that I love me some chocolate (thus the title of this blog).
I, therefore, eat chocolate every single day!
I am a sugar junkie!
I detest MOST veggies.
I have spent very little time exercising since my highschool sporty days.
I adore french fries -mmmm!
White bread is my favorite.
And when I lay it all out there like that I suppose it should come as no surprise that I have gained a lot of weight over the last 13 years. And by a lot of weight I mean about 65 lbs. Yeah, that much.
I recently hit a number on the scales that I thought I'd never see - I vowed I'd never be that person, the one who "let it go". Boy, was I wrong?
And now for the second time, I have started counting points on Weight Watchers.
The first time was a success for me - I followed the rules, cut back, tried to exercise at least a few times a week, and I got down to a comfortable weight for me. But I started slacking and packed on the pounds again. I gained more the second time around and now I have a lot more to lose.
Knowing that I technically failed was a huge discouragement for me for a long but I finally had to let that go and start over again. I have to keep reminding myself of how great I felt at a healthy weight and just focus on the goal.
I'm a realist - I really don't want to be at the same weight as in high school. That just doesn't seem reasonable anymore.
I will eat chocolate still - that's just me, I won't deny myself that pleasure.
I will cut down on the white bread - I try to limit myself to once a week - and have more whole grains.
I will exercise at least 3 times a week for at least 30 minutes.
I will include veggies in my diet.
I will ease up on anything fried.
My current goal is to lose about 12 lbs before I go on vacation to New Brunswick for a friends wedding at the end of June. My final goal is to lose a total of 43 lbs by the end of October. I am very proud to say that I have already, in the past month, lost 10 lbs! Yay ME!!
I'm telling you all that to say this - I need you to keep me motivated. I need someone to answer to. I can't attend Weight Watchers meetings anymore. I don't have a place to go and "weigh-in" other than my own bathroom. I want to be accountable. I need to do this! I want to look decent in a bathing suit again...lol...that's not too much to ask is it? I'm sure the hubster will be more than happy for that day to come...haha!
So, every week I will do a short post to fill you in on my progress. I normally weigh myself on Saturday mornings and then start the new week of points. I have a "ticker" at the bottom of my blog page to track my pounds lost.
Wish me luck!
