I've Got to Do Something!

Hello all you blogger friends - if any of you are out there anymore. :) I did not disappear from the face of the earth, though it may have seemed like it. I have been very busy gaining back almost all that I lost last year. It has been so discouraging. I know that many of you struggle with weight issues as well, and I am sure you know the old story...."taking a break" from stepping on the scale or from carefully watching what you eat turns into a 6 month or 10 month hiatus that results in finding many pounds that were lost.

Sigh. Well, I at least have started blogging again. I do feel that is the first step to making it back into positive territory. I know I need to do something to change my eating habits, but don't want to do the same thing I have in the past. I feel like I need something new and exciting to motivate me. I know what I need to do to lose weight, I just don't feel like doing all the food prep every day and counting calories again. It gets so old.

My fitness counselor friend called me the other day. He thought I should try Medifast, and thinks it is a great program. I looked at it, and I agree it looks good. But I honestly have to say that I don't think I can afford what it would cost me to do it. Though I may not eat the right things, I do not spend a lot of money on food. Since it is just myself and my 7 year old son, I can make one cooked meal last for several dinners and lunches. I just don't have the extra money to spend on shakes and supplemental meals at this time. I wish I did. So instead, I am going to ease back into this by just writing down everything I am eating each day. That should help, and tomorrow I am going to decide how I am going to jump back on this health bandwagon, and super glue myself to the wagon seat!


  1. Glad to see that you're back! Have you ever tried Weight Watchers? You're counting points instead of calories. The best way to go is a natural way so you can learn to eat healthily and be able to sustain your weight loss. Maybe try new exercises to motivate you. Good luck!

  2. Hi Sue! So happy to see you back in the blogosphere!!

    I've been doing not so good myself the last 6 months. I've gotten lazy and complacent. *sigh*

    Been back 'on the wagon' for about a week now. I'll scoot over and make room for you next to me, okay? ;)

    Now let's get back to doing what we know we need to do!

  3. We all tend to isolate when things aren't going well. I'm so glad you're posting again. I know that my blog accountability is a big factor in my journey.
