It's Been A While...

I haven't blogged in months, not because I've fallen off the wagon or because I've given up.  Nope, I'm still trucking along and so so very close to my goal weight.  I hit the big 150 mark on my home scale, but have yet to get there at my Weight Watchers meetings.  As of Tuesday, I was 153.2, so I'm only 3.2 pounds away from hitting my goal for WW.  Yay!!!  This is big because, after I hit my goal weight and maintain it for six weeks, I become a lifetime member and get to stop paying.  Big yay there!  

The hard thing is, it seems like the last few pounds do NOT want to come off.  That paired with the fact that this winter has been so horrible and depressing makes for a long, drawn out process of getting to goal.  In the past couple of months, I've slacked a lot.  I missed out on the gym for a while because of a foot injury (that kept me in a walking boot for four weeks) and because of crappy weather.

But, Tuesday night at my WW meeting, I really did some thinking about how I am not 100% in the WW mindset anymore.  And I really think that the cold weather and boredom have been killing my momentum.  So, I gave myself a pep talk and am going to push through!!!  I had a great day yesterday and am planning another great day today.  I'm back at the gym (though low impact for a while since I'm still rehabbing my foot) and feeling good.

In the past couple of weeks, I've been asked by a few people to share some of my recipes and WW tricks and tips.  And, since I have this so lonely and neglected blog, I thought I'd revamp it some to not only keep me motivated and accountable, but to share some of the tips that I have accumulated over the past six years of WW (and a lifetime of watching my weight!).

So look for some changes in the next couple of days.  And, be sure to come back to check out lots of recipes, tips and tricks (and maybe share some of yours, too!)
