New plan, Hopefully same results

(Cartoon taken from Baloo's Cartoon Blog)

I weighed this morning... OMG! Can I just say it was absolutely HORRIBLE! I have let myself gain back 22 lbs since the beginning of summer. For those of you that are new to my blog I'll do a quick recap just so you can see how terrible this is. In January of 2009 I started Weight Watchers weighing 226 lbs. The most I have ever weighed in my life. My brother was getting married in June 2009 and I did not want to be a HUGE matron of honor. So by the time the wedding came around I had lost 40 lbs. I maintained/fluctuated between 185 and 176 for a year. By the beginning of last summer I was at my lowest which was 173. Since then I have slowly but gradually fallen off the wagon. Okay, actually I jumped off and never looked back. So that is why this morning when I weighed myself the scale glared back at me with a whopping 195!!!!

I had already decided that I was going to start the new Weight Watchers plan today. It was just devasting to see that after I had worked so hard that I just let it all go to waste.
I will lose again and I will maintain this time!!!!!

I think there are a lot of us starting the new plan. I plan to begin the week after Christmas. I just can't bring myself to do it before ;) I'm thinking about doing a Weight Watchers Wednesday post every week and maybe I'll add a Linky for people who want to join and link up.

You will do great! It's so hard to maintain, I hate that GOOD food is BAD for you. Who made up that rule? I wish weight was never an issue!!

Oh girl...I feel ya on this one! I was doing good until my mommy's group cancelled my WW meetings. :( I have been eating so bad & I had lost about 20 lbs. after having my son. I'm sure I've probably gained 5-10 of it back. I need to lose about 30 lbs. & I would be at my goal weight! We can do it! (but, for me...I might have to wait until AFTER the holidays) :P
