Progress...

A few weeks back I took the plunge and started Weight Watchers again.   I have tried this a couple of times successfully in the past and it was time to take the bull by the horns again to get back on track. 

The first time I did weight watchers, I was about the weight I am now and I wanted to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight.  I did well with this and then about a year later I got pregnant with my second. 

The second time I did weight watchers, I had more to lose.  I lost 25lbs and felt great.  I was on a roll at my previous job and working out was a part of a regular habit of life so I maintained well. 

In the Fall of 2010, I changed jobs...that wrecked any exercise and eating habit that I had formed.  My location changes, I was trying to make new friends and impress those at my new job.  I lost track!

At first I gained only about 5 lbs and I thought, I can live with this.  I'll get back those 5lbs when I get a bit more settled.  Then I sprained my ankle and 10lbs later, my clothes aren't fitting quite like they used to and there are some clothes I just plain can't wear...

I have lost 2 lbs since starting WW this time and that includes an entire 7 days of travel and conference food (I have another conference in May and I will be packing my own food!)....

Progress is that I am staying on track...
Progress is that I am excited about this...
Progress is that I love the fresh veggies and fruits I have incorporated into my daily meals...
Progress is that I am excited to work out as a part of building that habit up again...
Progress is that this time instead of 25lbs away from my goal weight I am only 15...

It is all a lifestyle change for me and re-building habits I have lost...
