Trying to lose weight, yet again
The gaining part is so easy, the losing part less so. I'm sure this is not healthy for me - I lose 10-15 pounds and eventually gain it back over the next year or two. About eighteen months ago I had gotten down to a nice weight, gained a little over the summer and then come fall decided that I would enjoy the holiday season. Boy did I enjoy the holiday season! Now, I'm looking to drop that weight again. I weighed 151.2 this morning. More than I did coming back from vacation! Damn! Ideally, I would like to get down to 140. I am restarting weight watchers. I'm going to try to do it online and use this blog to keep myself accountable. I think I will also make my husband be my conscience. I'm not sure what workout strategy I'm going to use, perhaps heading back to the gym, maybe doing tapes at home. The gym can be difficult as some days I need to get home to the dog and the gym is between work and home. I would love to try out A's gym program - it has really worked for him - but it is expensive and since we need to be saving to go to Italy next year, I think I can find a cheaper solution to my workout issues. Anyway, back to being accountable, I plan to post my weight in this blog each Tuesday morning. Hopefully if I commit to that, it will force me to follow the plan and get on track. One of my motivations is the clothes that I can't wear right now because the waist bands are too tight! That is my reward - a revived wardrobe with little investment.
