A Wake Up Call

I had a wake up call about a month ago. I stepped on the scale for the first time in almost 6 months. In that time I had gained 30 pounds! I was at an all time high of 261. I can believe I had let myself get to this point. At that moment I decided to join Weight Watchers online. I needed to do something.

I am following the Flex Points plan. I need to have the flexibility to make choices from some of my favorites, while still having a structure to follow.

It has to work this time! I will be posting my weight every Friday and my measurements once a month.

I call a redo!

I am calling for a redo!  Remember in grade school during a game a kickball you could call for a redo?  A chance to try again?  I need one for my life.

I need to work at being a better mother, a better wife, and a better me!  Somewhere along the way I have lost sight of who I am and have been going through the motions.

I need to take better care of myself.  I need to make time for myself.  I need to appreciate my husband for everything he is and stop focusing on what he is not.  I need to see the wonder in my children and not the mess they create.

I am doing this to keep myself accountable.
