So to those of you who are regular readers of my blog or know me in real life its no surprise that I struggle with my weight. Currently I am rather overweight but I'm working towards becoming healthier. Its hard to admit that as blatant as it is, because I have fought this weight thing and won before only to pack on the pounds again. Its also a bit disappointing to me looking back over the past few years and notice the weight fluctuations. I joined weight watchers again in December of this year, as this is the program that has worked for me before and that I can follow. I noticed when taking stock of failed attempts and gains that they happened when I wasn't accountable to anyone, so I've resolved to attend the meetings until I lose all my extra weight and to keep attending as a skinny me.
Schmoop has been wonderful in this and always asks how he can help me and what he can do. I simply told him that the best thing he can do is MAKE ME GO TO MEETINGS, complimenting when he sees improvement is always a help too. He is not my babysitter and doesn't need to monitor my intake or "remind" me that I'm on weight watchers, this is my job to get healthy, not his. For the record, he has never tried to do that and is wonderfully supportive just saying what is not a help for those wondering.
So I decided last night that a regular Friday feature on my blog is the Friday Smack Down. Thursday is my weight watchers meeting and the moment of truth with my little friend, the scale. So Friday is the perfect way to update you on the weeks progress and maybe show some pics.
So this week I lost 2.4, yes even with the Superbowl Bacon Fiasco '08 I still lost 2.4!!! I'm pretty happy about this and my total amount lost so far is 14.6lbs. Woot woot!
