Day Two

Well, I updated my spread sheet. Drum roll please! I had a grand gain in 2008 of 26.4 pounds. What the freaking kind of fool am I? Ah well, it's done. No use crying over pooled fat.

I've made a short term goal for myself. A loss of 6.2 pounds. That will take me (back) to 160 pounds off. A few short months ago I was striving to hit my 190 off. DUMB! DUMB! DUMB!

I'm not one to dwell on things (yea right) so I'm moving on. I did it before, and I can do it again. It's difficult re-losing weight. Just want to be where you once were and aren't now. It's not like losing it the first time. The first time it was new and different...this time it's just doing the same freaking old thing over again. So, I'm trying to think of it as new. Hence, the short term goal.

I'm striving to hit my 160 pounds off. Period.

I'll get another star then too. If you don't belong to Weight Watchers, you might not know about the stars. For each 5 pounds you lose, you get a star sticker to put on a cardboard bookmark they give you at week 2. Years ago when I was amassing my stars, they were cloth. They've since fallen off and I've lost most of them. Two weeks ago, my WW leader gave me a new bookmark and 31 stars. I only asked for 31 as that's where my weight was then. I thought it would be much better to earn them as I go again. More incentive. So, -6.2 is the magic number I'm shooting for first.

Today I'll be doing my WATP DVD and one other exercise activity not planned yet. I've planned my food for the day and I know I'll not waver.

So, even though it's the beginning of the day.

Journal food. Check
Exercise. Check
Stay OP. Check

As my good friend Rosanna says, 'Let it be written, let it be done'.

So it shall be!


  1. Go Debbie!

    Your journey reminds me that all that lip service we pay about making permanent lifestyle changes...well, it turns out that's all true. Maybe the very best measure of success is in the constant reevaluation of our position and the decision to walk forward from there. I think 2009 is going to hold great things for you, and I'm excited to check in on your blog and watch them happen!


  2. I am also looking forward to following your journey. I also am doing WW and look forward to seeing you around the boards. Here's to 2009, a year of change for all of us! We can do this!

  3. I know you can do it, you obviously have been already!!

    I am on WW too (again!). I ended this year with a loss a 25 net loss. Now it had been up to 44 net loss, but I messed that up (just quit doing WW and then had a hysterectomy -- yuck!)

    I look forward to following your progress!
    Stop by my blog and say hello too if you want...
