I have reached that point where I am going to try again. In November 2008 I was down to 141. A healthy weight for me however I felt that I needed to tone up. Well that did not happen I started to cheat here and there and now I have gained back more than I would like to admit. Okay almost 40 pounds. I know that I don’t look at chunky as I did in the past because I have put on a lot of muscle so my body under my fat it fit. However I need my clothes to fit again. I am tired of having a drawer of jean that don’t fit me but did at one point.
At the beginning of the year I started doing a program by Jamie Easton. I think I have gained a pound each week since then. I finished the program and feel stronger but not fit enough to fit into my jeans. I realize that I really have to focus on my eating. I started tracking about a week ago using myFitness Pal. However one of my really good friends is on weight watchers and she gained about 10 pounds and lost her lifetime status with them. So she wanted to get back because that helped her to lose her weight in the first place.
I was on weight watchers about 5 years ago and it really did help me get down to a healthy weight. So my friend convinced me to give them another try. So I will be attending WW meetings again for 2 months. That’s what I gave my friend; two months to see change. If I am able to lose 10 pounds then maybe I will continue to get the support from them. I got all the new info and will be discussing it with my mom.
I wish my mom would take care of herself as well but she is determined to be the same weight as she was in high school. However she does not realize that even though she is the same weight her body composition has changed. I don’t know what gives. It could be that she was made fun of for being well endowed. Or it could be that she had a traumatic event occur while trying to get healthy by running. I cannot say or speak for her or make her change but I don’t want her to have full on diabetes because she is now pre-diabetic. My grandmother died of complications of diabetes or kidney something. I don’t remember really I just know my grandmother made changes to extend her health Such as give up soda and cut back on sugary juices.
So wish me luck….well not really just give me support and I know I will do this.
Oh I need to get another one of these again. I gave my old one to my sister. Who I am so proud of because she is trying to be healthy and fit too.
