Well, like everyone else, I have made resolutions for 2010. One of those resolutions, like many others, is to lose some weight. Weight has been an ongoing struggle for me for several years. The main reason is my passion for chocolate (and stress eating) which I talked about last February http://spiritsoflena.blogspot.com/2009/02/travails-of-chocolate.html
I have gone down about 12 pounds in two years of being a Weight Watcher. I know that many of you are thinking, what!, that's it! just 12 pounds in two years! It has definitely been an up and down journey. I am not upset about it because if I wasn't in the program, I most likely would have gained a huge amount of weight. The program stopped me in the process of eating like a maniac. I was on the fast track to obesity.
I gained a couple of pounds over this Christmas Holiday. So, now, it is time to refocus. My sister and I are going to motivate each other. The first person to lose five pounds gets a book or cd bought by the other person. She does not need to lose as much as I do. She recently lost like thirty pounds. She is an exercise fiend, so all she had to do to shed the pounds was change her diet and portions, which she did quite successfully. I need to ammend my diet and exercise more often. I hope that I win this one!
I'd love to hear your major resolutions and I will keep you updated on my progress.
