what i mean... for now

I am back in the groove. I've been on vacation for several weeks. And when I say vacation, I mean I vacationed from everything. And when I say everything, I mean I quit eating healthy and ate whatever I wanted. And when I say whatever I wanted, I mean I ate the whole, frigging back of mini-snickers! And when I say the whole, frigging bag of snickers... well, that's exactly what I mean!

But! [And that's a big BUT!] I am DONE with that. [Well, for now. Being realistic about my record... only life will tell if I am truly done.. but I can say for now.]

I like to say I am doing "healthy living" right now. I don't want to pay WW $40 bucks a month when I already know all the things I need to do to loose weight. Yeah, yeah, just because I'm a fat girl doesn't mean I lack knowledge. It is not a matter of knowing; it's a matter of doing.

Me, the hubby and my sister are being accountable to each other and our commitment [for now] to healthy living. We drew up some weight loss charts and everything. Aren't we cool? I lost three pounds our first week. Not bad. Beats gaining.

Anyway, back to the groove of healthy living.

PS Thanks for the support guys. It really blesses me.

I think it is cool you are doing it with your family members. Their support will be a positive influence towards improved health. Hang in there and I am proud of you, 3lb WL! Woot!

Good luck. You can do it!

Congrats on your 3 pounds! I'm like you in that I KNOW what to do but just seem to have a hard time doing it. I guess that's what the $40 is supposed to do--inspire you to follow the rules but the monthly gym membership never seems to motivate me much so...

Keep going on your own and I bet you'll do great, especially with the charts!

I so get it. I love(d) Snickers. Haven't had one since my banding, though, so I don't know how well I could tolerate it.
