Restart #4

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!

This Week is a Lost Cause

Reboot #4 will commence on Monday.  Meanwhile I decided to get rid of the last of the leftover birthday cake.  This weekend I will plan out my meals for next week and grocery shop.

Reboot #3

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)
