A Fresh Start...

It's been about a month since I really focused on my Weight Watchers... and tomorrow I am starting fresh. From the beginning of the year, my coworker and I have been weighing ourselves each Monday on the Warehouse scale. In February, I was up to my highest weight. Since then, I had joined Weight Watchers in May and had lost 17 lbs. I am fearing that my little bit of wavering has let a few of those pounds creep back in. So, tomorrow... a fresh start. Cory helped me out by portioning some of my food that I'll take to work (he spoils me!)... and I am going to start getting online to log in my food again. It's really not that big of a deal and it's not hard... it's just that I get busy or lazy... or a combination of both. Wish me luck! I believe that we are God's temple... and I definitely fall short from keeping it pure. I love sweets... and yes, I have a tattoo. But, considering there are things that are out of my control (like removing a tattoo)... I believe that I can still make the effort to eat right and be healthy. I do not like to exercise... YUCK! But I may try to get on that exercise bike as well and make the most of it. The good thing is that I am able to read and pedal at the same time, so I can actually half enjoy the work out. I do want to say though, I don't believe that we have to be stick-thin or look like (air brushed) models in a magazine to honor God's temple. But eating right and being healthy is important... that's why when I do follow WW's, I try to eat the fruits and veggies... the foods that are more wholesome. I admit, I do eat some sweets and such... but you can't just cut things out cold turkey or you'll go crazy!! I would like to encourage others, if you are struggling with over-eating (I'm the type of person who likes her comfort food!!!!)... take a look at WW's website. It might not work for everyone, but it has worked for me when I've made the effort. And if you can't afford it or just feel overwhelmed, just do the best you can. I know it's not easy to pass up dessert or that extra helping at meal time, but you'll be glad you did. If you need some support or want an accountability partner, let me know... I'd be more than happy to have one myself. I think back to when I started eating unhealthy over the past month and think what I could have lost if I would have stuck with it. That's what gives me motivation to keep going. It also motivates me to want to make a lifestyle change. The minute you stop "dieting" - the weight is going to creep back in. But making the right, healthy choices is what is best. I can do it, you can do it... all with God's help!!
