I haven't posted in a while, due to a pretty hectic schedule lately.
The last month has been challenging for a number of reasons. I have to be honest with you, but most importantly with myself, and say that I have been struggling the past few weeks. In the past, I would have never admitted this, I would have simply struggled along for a few weeks, then quit the program all together. That was the old me, this new me is refusing to quit. Nor, am I going to sit here and list excuses
Several of the girls at work have been talking about WW the last couple of weeks and I would think to myself, "Yea, I need to lose weight. I should rejoin WW, but I'm too broke and can't afford the meetings". As I was passing by the health office at work I noticed that there was a scale outside that we could use. So, on Monday I stepped on a scale for the first time in over a year - and I was shocked at what it read. 281 pounds! How did this happen? At first I just wanted to sit

Two weeks ago, I was disappointed by a small loss of only 0.8 lbs.
Last week, I was surprised by a small gain of 0.2 lbs....
This week I am celebrating a loss of 6.4 lbs! While I am not allowing the scale to be my sole measure of success, it feels really good! I wrote a letter to myself today to read should I even think about quitting to remember all the victories, all the hard work, all the changes that I have succesfully made! As I keep saying, I cannot fail as long as
