Week #52: REBOOT!

Those of you that were able to get to a meeting this week know that Weight Watchers brilliantly chose to have us discuss getting back on track. As if they had some sort of inkling that a week full of holiday celebrations might make that necessary!

I don't know what kind of impression you have of me, and I know that as a meeting leader I might represent some sort of "other" who isn't exactly like you. But, like probably many of you reading this, I ate and drank too much in the past week or two.

How do I know? Just weighed in this morning! Friday morning is my usual weigh-in day and I attend a meeting as a regular member. Santa was kind enough to bring me 3.8 pounds this year.

So that means it's time for me to get back into my regular routines and get my head back on straight! You can relate, right?

I am five weeks in to using our new 12 week Track book, and I am loving the weekly plan pages. As I sit in the meeting room waiting for the meeting to start, I pencil in what my activity plans are for the week. Because I do grocery shopping on Friday evenings, I can pencil in what many of my meals will be for the week. I basically get to plan what's going to happen to me over the next seven days!

This is a great way for me to reboot. New Year's Eve isn't a real celebration for me, so effectively the holidays are OVER. And I am ready to get back to eating right. I feel so much better when I do.

So step 1 was to weigh in and face the music. Step 2 is planning my food and workouts. Step 3 will be hitting up the grocery store. Join me in taking some healthy steps, won't you?

I am a leader in PA and I am with you! I weigh in tomorrow. Love your sense of humor and how down to earth you are. And I love my 3-month tracker, too. I'm on my fourth or fifth one now ... I have to count! It's got great ideas and plenty of room to write things down and plan. Isn't the thought for the day that's included great, too? Happy New Year!

Our WW center was closed on Christmas Eve and will also be close on New Years Eve. The church where the meeting are held is closed for the holiday so I have to wait to weigh-in. I've been using my home scale and I'm not happy with what I'm seeing. I can't wait for January 7th to get here so I can get back to attending my regular meetings before things get too out of hand.

I also bought a new 3 month tracker book. I love it. I sit with it every morning as I eat my breakfast and plan my daily activities.

Paula - having the regular meeting schedule back is HUGE! It's amazing how different my behavior is when I know that I'm regularly weighing in every week.

The holidays were not exactly stellar for me either! It's great to get back to my usual healthier routines. And the remaining Sees candy has been stashed in the freezer for emergency use only!

have a great new year!
