No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
WOW - its been a while for sure. July 9, 2016 to be exact. Its been quite the ride.
Let me start by saying, dang I've missed you guys. So I joined Weight Watchers last Monday. Yup. After a million years (not really) of trying it on my own, I came to the realization that I need to spend the money for the accountability. Don't get me wrong. I have learned a lot on my own and I have made a lot of changes in how I approach food. I just haven't been making progress # wise. Healthy wise, YES, but # wise no. It was time.
My dear friend and I bit the bullet and joined together. I promised her at minimum a 2 month commitment from me. That turned into a 3 month commitment because of a deal they had going. That doesn't mean I won't continue - it just means that I didn't want to make a commitment and leave my friend hanging if I couldn't continue for some reason or another.
So far the last 5 1/2 days have been successful. I've just taken my paleo style along with my desire to eat clean and applied it to the points system. I finally feel pretty good again about the direction I am heading in the journey to "finding beautiful".
A little bit about where I've been all this time. Quite honestly, I felt like I was hanging out here alone some. Then our family faced a lot of life struggle and change.
For starters, I changed jobs. This shift - was a great move for me. Only finding a new balance has been difficult. Making time for myself has suffered a lot. But I thinking I'm finally making some progress.
October, I finally had my gal bladder surgery. Then two weeks later, my husband had what we thought was a heart attack, that was actually congestive heart failure. He is doing better. He had to wear a life vest (with a defibulator in it) for about 6 weeks. Through medication and other changes, he is doing much better.
November, my father in law fell and broke his femur. To say that a broken femur and an 84 year old doesn't mix - is an understatement. His health declined very fast and on February 20th, he joined Jesus and found his place among the angels.
In January, I did complete a 5K and my first 10K in Disney. Ran the 5K / walk-run the 10. But I did it. From July to about October I had maintained a 15# weight loss. But its all back now. Thus the move to WW last week.
Anyway - Hope this post finds you all well.
