I've said it before.....and I'll say it again..........

Thank you everybody for your amazing support! I can feel down and come here and either get a wonderfully, supportive comment or go to your blogs and read some of your struggles and know I am not alone....whether that's weight issues or just "life" issues. This blog has helped in many ways! I appreciate each and every one of you who have stopped by to read and/or comment! Thank you!

Now, we had a little family get together on Sunday......my silly sister thought it would be a wonderful thing to take pictures.....OMG! I looked terrible. I know I have lost and have done pretty well at maintaining. I lost 44 lbs. originally and then gained back 15. I have maintained that for several months now. I guess I was just kidding myself because looking at these pictures...........................I don't look any better, AT ALL! I know, I can hear all of you now! "So, what are you going to do about it?" Obviously, I must do something! I have gone down two sizes and definitely do not want to go back up. I have enjoyed smaller sizes. So, headed back to the Weight Watchers site. Gotta get back to the basics and kick my own butt! We go to the beach in 32 days. Wouldn't it be nice to be 10 - 15 lbs. lighter? I know I can do it! It's the want to I am having a hard time with. Tomorrow is a new day and I really want tomorrow to be different! I just have to quit sabotaging myself! That's my hardest part. I get tired and lazy and unmotivated and let it all go! Why do I do that? My youngest son goes up and down with his weight ---- we are talking 10-20 lbs. He is 6'3" and 220 at the moment. However, he has the same food addiction I do. That is something I truly didn't want to hand down to my child/children. He asked me the other day "Mom, why do I quit eating healthy when I know how wonderful I feel when I am eating right?" My answer? I didn't have one! WHY? Because I do the very same thing to myself. So, he is going to try this with me! He is so athletic and can get right up and start a workout routine with no trouble. Me, no, I can't do that! I am proud of his physical drive. I need to take some of that from him!

So, there's my rant for the day! Tomorrow is a new day! Wish me luck!

I hate taking pictures as well but I find that it really helps me notice the smallest changes even when the scale doesn't cooperate. Have you thought about taking pictures once a month? I haven't over this past 17 months and I wish that I really had.

Hang in there ;)

I know - photos are just so blummin real aren't they? Nothing like the picture of ourselves we have in our heads!

Good luck on shedding that weight for your holiday!

Good luck!!!!

I'm going back to WW tonight after a 2.5 week hiatus. C'mon, we can do this!!!

Look how good you're maintaining. Now, just lose 10-15 more like you said and then maintain that for a while. Baby steps!

Shoot...I better go finish off the cheesecake, brownies, homemade bread etc before tomorrow morning! lol sound familiar??? God I'm so dysfunctional!
