Confessions of a Delinquent Weight Watcher….

Posted on: July 31, 2013

I have skipped meetings so much in the past month, I have been counting points in my head and not recording them ( a big mistake)   and just not caring too much lately…   I think this has to change and change quickly… 

Linking up with The Pleated Poppy


Of course this is all up to me,but my head has just not been on straight, fighting the perceptiondof others that I should be happy where I am despite knowing that I want to be at a healthier weight- in the mid-range of healthy not just barely into normal ranges.  But that all stops now!  


  My head is now on straight, since I bought this BMI Monitor and proved to myself that my instincts are correct and the judgement of others has no place in my weight loss journey!  I have just about 6 weeks until my 48th Birthday and am going to kick it into gear… No more self sabotage!!!   


I am wearing a Jessica Howard dress I thrifted with a Green Cardigan found here (comes in sizzes xxs to 3x and 18 colors) ,   My green slingback wedges are from Chadwicks from last year and no longer available.

Dear Readers. I got so off track when our AC went out and it took us a few weeks to fix it and I haven’t even been exercising.  This has had a very negative effect on my sleep patterns and I have really been sleep deprived the past few weeks!  I am a woman who needs sleep so back to the exercize, which I love so this is not a problem for me… Once you get into the rut of not sleeping, it’s easy to use that as an excuse to not exercize, but then the cycle continues… So making the commitment to start today!  


I am grateful that despite my not doing the right things that I haven’t been gaining weight.

I am grateful for my upcoming birthday and the inspiration to get things going

I am grateful that my niece had a Dr. appointment and that after less than 5 hours of sleep, I took a nap today!  

I am grateful that I am so loving tea these days and have completely broken my addiction to diet soda!!!   

I am grateful that I made tacos and we have left overs for tonight… My husband was even able to stop home and have some before going back out for his evening appointment!

Like I said before, I really admire your determination to be healthy and get to your goal weight. I really think you look fabulous though! What a great dress and the green is the perfect pop of color!

Thanks I am more determined than ever as I keep saying this is about health and I want to get it right just this once and maintain for a lifetime… Inching towards 50 makes for a great wake up call!

I love that dress, and it looks great with the green! What an inspiration you are! I just turned 48 on Saturday, and I want to get in shape and stay healthy. Even though I try to eat healthy and my weight is low, I need to get toned. Just don’t know how to get there. Thanks for inspiring me to stay motivated!

Toning is my favorite part with weights.. My favorite is a Dvd I purchased on Ebay,

I also highly recommend ballet Barre programs if you can find one or my at home version Fluidity. Yoga is great as well and you can find lots of info on Yoga poses online…

Oops forgot to Wish you a Happy belated Birthday!!!

I also want to say that before my weight gaining years I was thin but did not at all have the muscle tone I currently have!

Thank you! And thanks for toning ideas. I”ve loved Mitch Gaylord ever since seeing him compete in the Olympics! I do have a torn rotator cuff that I have to watch out for.

You are an inspiration to me! I’ve been journaling my food and exercising which is totally new for me. I’m feeling better already. I can’t wait to get some new cute outfits at Goodwill.

Great job and it’s so great to have something to look forward to. I haven’t been to GOODWILL in almost a month…

Good for you! I’m glad you aren’t listening to the negative nellies at your WW mtgs. You started this for yourself, and only you will know when you have reached goal. You have inspired me sooo much, though I have been “off the wagon” all Summer, and I need to get back on! Here’s to getting back on track!

Summer of offers so many distractions doesn’t it ? Better to get on track now way before the winter holidays…
