OK. ONCE AGAIN, I am making a fresh start. This is restart #4, I believe. This is getting ridiculous—I started WW back in July, went through a 19-week session where I lost 9 pounds but gained it back by the end, renewed for a second 19-week session of which I am now about 14 weeks into (holidays that fall on Mondays don’t count because we don’t meet when it’s a work holiday) and as of today I am down a whopping 0.2 from my original starting weight! Like I said in a previous post (I think--maybe that was my other blog), I am tired of paying all this money and not really making much of an effort to actually follow the program. So today I am not only making a fresh start, but I am recommitting to following the program, namely by diligently tracking my points, making better food choices and upping my activity. Game on!

Once again I am making a fresh start as of today and I am going to continue to keep track of how many times I start over. I'm very curious to see how many restarts I have by the end of the year.
Also, I forgot to mention yesterday that one of my goals for February is to blog everyday.

It's been a little over a month and in that time I lost 3.6 pounds and gained back 3.4. Typical, typical. I was doing good last week, too, until we went to dinner Saturday night after skiing (and I didn't even ski. I was just there to help Paul with the girls, getting all their equipment rented and put on and what-not) and I couldn't stop eating chips and salsa. Then on Sunday I dug some of the birthday cake out of the freezer even though I knew my mother-in-law was probably going to bring something over (they came to celebrate my birthday belated because they had been on a cruise). Then we went out to dinner and I had fries with my salmon burger. Then I was mostly back on track today until after work I had to make a stop at Target and I was starving and craving Cheetos real bad so I bought a bag and ate half of it (or maybe a little more than half--should have just bought a small bag) on the way home. I will plan better the rest of the week and have better snack options so I'm not starving when I leave work. Here are my February goals:
- Weigh less on March 1st than I did today
- Actually follow the WW plan
- Exercise 2X/week (min)
- Finish my current book, read another and start a third (#5 for the year)
