back again

Well, I haven't been posting here very much because I have been so disappointed in the choices that I have been making, so I haven't wanted to talk (write) about it.

The good news is, I AM BACK! The house is sold, and the new house is bought - so life can now get back to normal.

I really didn't handle the situation of house hunting and having the house on the market well at all - I totally threw all my hard work aside and reverted back into old patterns that got me fat in the first place. Through the month long process (or just a bit longer than a month) I gained 8.6  lbs!! YUCK

Last week at my meeting I was pretty quite. My leader came up to me afterwards and reminded me how far I've come. She reminded me that I've done WW before and never stuck with it this long. She reminded me that at other times in my life this kind of gain would have caused me to quit - but this time I'm still there. SHE IS SUCH A FANTASTIC LEADER!!!!

I wasn't very motivated at that point, and I think she could sense that so she challenged me to change just ONE thing in the following week. Sounded easy enough so I thought I would give it a try. I decided that I wasn't ready to get my eating back on track so I would try to incorporate some activity in my week (yes, EXERCISE  - my NEMESIS!!!). So I pulled out the new Wii Active program that I bought and gave it a try. I did it two times last week, and then pulled the muscles in my thighs pretty badly, so that was it for the week - but it was something.

I was down 1.6 at wi today, so its a start. Only (yeah right, only) 7 more lbs to go to get back to where I was. But I know I will do it, I will get there. I am not going to give up. This weeks lesson was geared towards motivation and things we can do to get us back to the point where we were highly motivated - JUST WHAT I NEED!! So I left there feeling rejuvenated - ready to tackle this head on, and to make good choices this week.

We don't move until August 27th, so I have time to drop some more weight and hopefully my new neighbours will never know the fat Jen - just healthy Jen.

In case you want to see it, here are a few pics of the new place. (We love it and are super excited - I took 80 pics, but will just post one of the exterior and two of the kitchen - I LOVE MY KITCHEN!!)

Glad to have you back! We all have set-backs, but good for you for getting back to it! You should be proud of yourself!

Love the new house. We are trying to get ours cleaned up to list it. Hard to do with 4 little ones though.

why don't you give yourself a break and instead of saying "now only 7 more to go to get to where I was" just stop the sentence at "I was down 1.6", which is, by the by, AMAZING - well done!

Gracie said...

Is that a Mattamy Home?
I LOVE LOVE it. Love the kitchen! Good for you back on track!

OH PS my WW leader used to call those "recycled pounds" - the ones we lost that we had gained back. LOL It was a funny way of looking at it!
