Back to Weight Watchers!!
2011 was definitely the best year of my life...all the most amazing things happened.
Got engaged (technically 2010)
Fiancee (at the time) bought a Mexican Restaurant
Got Married (I really kicked ass and was at my lowest weight on the Tuesday before the wedding!)
Went on excellent Honeymoon to the Dominican Republic - 7 days of freedom
Had surgery - off feet and resting 6 weeks - off work too
Thanksgiving (feeding frenzy....)
Ok - now back to reality....
I went to weigh in at Weight Watchers. I even went to a meeting that I don't normally go to since I couldn't face my leader. I didn't want her to be disappointed in me. 8 weeks after the wedding...I had gained a whopping 15 lbs.
Oh. my.....GOD. How did it take me 10 months to lose 40 pounds but only 2 months to gain 15? This is a joke. For real. No joke. Just a ton of comfort food and sitting on my ass (doctor recommended though).
So I got serious and went back, but MAN facing the mental music was hard to take. It felt like I had committed a sin and needed to confess. I felt terrible. Just terrible. Like all my hard work was for nothing and I was back to square one. Jiggly and blobby and terrible.
Then I got a hold of myself.
Seriously? Get a grip! You didn't gain it ALL back - you need to check yourself. This is exactly where I have failed in the past. I couldn't face the music and just let myself keep eating, keep drinking and go crazy. Because?? I don't know. Because it's easy. Because food is awesome. Because it's fun to be social.
But it's not fun to not fit into clothes. It's not fun to shop when you hate your size. And it's really not fun to look in the mirror and not like what you see.
So. Back on track. I lost 1.6 yesterday and feel better. Feel empowered and feel like I am getting ahead of the game for 2012. Here's to a healthy year!
