Getting Back on Track

I missed one Weight Watchers meeting because of work and then a second when I was sick. During that time, I did not consistently track my eating. I woke up this morning to pounding rain outside and did not want to go to the meeting. I made myself get up and go because I knew that I was off track. I have gained 2.8 pounds since my last meeting on June 30th. Of course, I was bummed!

I am not going to quit, although it is tempting. I am using this as my reminder that I have to carefully watch what I eat. Left to my own devices, my eating habits cause me to gain weight. This is my challenge in life. Other things in life have come pretty easily to me, but weight loss and exercise do not. I need to (and want to) keep working on this part of my life.

I am posting two pictures from when I has lost weight with Weight Watchers in the past as my reminder that I can do this. The frist one is from December 2004 at the Riverwalk and the second is from Jamie's wedding in May 2005.

I am still working on keeping regular activity in my life. I am not as motivated to get to the gym without a trainer. My plan for this week is to go after work each day. I get off of work about 6:00 P.M. and then go back to UTSA at 7:30 P.M. to pick up John from his class. I can use this time to go to the gym instead of just going straight home.

I hope that everyone has a good week! I'll post my Weight Watchers results next Saturday.

Good Luck on your Weight Watchers! Maybe you can chase Grafton's robot bug around for exercise :)

The bug is a little slow. Maybe John can build a fster robot.
