Well kids, it’s Tuesday. You know what that means. Yeah, yeah, I know it’s New Year’s Day (SQUEE) but that’s not what I meant. I told you a couple of weeks ago that on Tuesdays I would share my weight loss progress with you. You can see from the picture above, that was taken on Christmas, that I’m not doing as well as I had hoped.
I told you guys I would update every Tuesday to keep myself accountable, and since last Tuesday was Christmas, and I was too busy stuffing my face all day, I failed. Boy did I fail.
After I lost almost a third-yes, a third- of my body weight using Weight Watchers, keeping it off was pretty easy. I was going through a never-ending divorce and I found that stress and rage give you a real one-two punch of adrenaline. While I won’t say that love makes you fat, I have managed to put a full 15 pounds back on since re-kindling my romance with Mr. The Cheeky Diva. It’s fun to cook for a man who enjoys eating, and appreciates my mad kitchen skillz.I can’t just whip up my most bestest creations and not eat them can I? Mooooo….
I managed to gain even more weight over Christmas. All I can say about that is I’m kinda sorta ashamed of myself. It really hit home when we watched The Messengers, starring Kristen Stewart.
As I watched her glide through the movie in the throes of teen angst, I thought to myself, DAMMIT! I used to look like that! No, not when I was younger. Just a couple of years ago. I have a houseful of clothes that don’t fit to remind me every day.
That for me was the last straw.
What steps have I taken?
~ I re-joined Fat Secret for starters. This is a great website to help you keep track of your progress. Lots of great tools, tips and other fun stuff.
~I bought “diet friendly” groceries. Barf~ So while my darling husband enjoyed his yummy New Year’s breakfast of eggs, bacon and toast, I munch on shredded wheat and grapes.
~I bought new batteries for my scale. So instead of LO BAT when I stepped on it this morning, I got this friendly message:
HAPPY NEW YEAR LARDASS!
