I am thankful. I am lucky. I have a great family, a good job, a nice house full of nice things. And I have friends.
Last week I turned 36. I know, some of you say that I'm just a spring chicken. And I guess that I am really. Last week I also made the decision to sign up at Weight Watchers. It was a hard decision to make, which might sound silly, but sometimes it's just easier to be fat and happy, you know?
I know that I won't always eat ALL the right things, but for now, I am trying. Really, really hard.
So this week, I ask you, my family and friends, to support me on this journey. It's not going to be easy. Please don't be offended if I turn down a wine, or something yummy to eat. But also, please don't judge me when I DO have a wine, or a piece of cake. I have probably allowed for it in my daily points allowance.
This last week has been hard. I went out on Monday night and was surprised by some friends with a bottle of wine and a chocolate cake for supper (for my birthday). I had to politely decline. I have felt bad about it ever since. But I need to try and stick to my guns. It's too easy to give in. To give up. That's why I decided to let you know what I am doing. I was going to 'go it alone' and not tell anyone. But I think that is the wrong way to go about it.
Tonight is my first weigh-in since signing up. If I'm being totally honest, I'm a bit anxious about it. Here's hoping it goes ok, and that I'm on the right track. I did Weight Watchers when J was a baby, and it worked then, so there's no reason that it shouldn't work for me now. Although this time, I have a LOT more weight to lose. 30.2kg to be precise. I know, it's a big number huh? So here, on my blog, I will try to be honest and let you know how things are going. I figure that if you lot are checking on my results each week, then there's plenty of incentive to try harder, right? I'll be back tonight with the results.
