I am Failing On My Own….

Posted on: March 16, 2017

With the emotions of finishing up going through my sister’s condo, 

I am failing to stay on track with eating right and exercising, 

So today I decided I needed a solution!  

Grandeur of the Seas


I have 184 days until I embark on my second annual Girls Only Cruise with a few friends, 

and I want to be ready and feeling vibrant and wonderful.   


Two weeks prior to my cruise I am going to Walk in my first 1/2 marathon 

to honor my sister , Kelley who did a few every year!

I have had success in the past with WW after the birth of my youngest and again after my mother passed on when I gained as her caregiver.   It stands to reason that having had 2 successes with this program I should stick with what has worked in the past, because I certainly need the support and accountability of weighting in… 

So wish me luck my Dear Readers, as I have accepted that I do not succeed with out this kind or program , 

and get real about losing this weight and getting my body back to healthy!

Accountability helps us all, I think!! Good luck and it will be fun, because you’ll succeed!!

Thank you so much, looking forward to getting back in control instead of this floundering about I’ve been doing….

Good luck. Have you tried the online version?

I have in the past , but prefer going to meetings and that accountability…

Hang in there Tracey.. I remember when this happened in my life I kind of withdrew a felt good to be alone- I wanted it that way..but a friend told me that things that make your life smaller usually aren’t for the best..I kind of use that as a guide anymore- “is this going to open up my life or close it off?” I see the success of Weight Watchers as proof of that meet, you share, you feel accountable, you open your life up..this will work for you. 💜

thank you Cindy, I have hibernated during this time coming to terms with the sudden and unexpected and unexplained passing of my sister. I am ready to step out and get back to better self care, but know this was necessary time for me….

I remember what that was like when the same thing happened to my younger sister. We never did find out or fully understand what happened, though she did take too many prescriptions. I had just had a big conversation with her about my concerns..the whole thing was terrible. It took months for me to figure out how to manage all this in my head..and I too stepped back as much as possible just to figure things out..but after a while I realized that healing wouldn’t be found in solitude..Like you, I know that this time was important for me, but I’m glad I was able to pull myself back to, I guess what you’d call, a new normal…you will find that new, healthy & happy normal for yourself Tracey, I promise. 💜

Thank you , I am beginning to , considering it a great step that I can at least now talk about her without crying. A small first step, but in reality a huge indication that acceptance is now complete… I appreciate so much your encouragement and sharing your journey.
