I’ve blogged many times about how I want to lose the extra weight I have gained since reaching lifetime membership at Weight Watchers. Yes, I talk big plans, but then I head over to the McDonald’s drive-through. My mind hasn’t been in it 100%.
This week, my Mom and I went to our first weight watchers meeting in months. I think the last meeting we went to was in February or March. However, I have been weighing in each month to be able to keep my lifetime membership but I’ve never stayed for the meetings and did not follow the plan at all. Well, I think we have both finally decided to stop fooling around and try to lose some weight. I weighed in at 18.4lbs above my goal weight and enough is enough. I just want to be proud of all the hard work I put in in 2010 to lose 74lbs. Right now, I am not very pleased with myself.
My mom is having some major issues as well. Her father was an overweight man as well and he passed away at 56 from his second heart attack. Well my Mom turned 56 in July and it is really weighing heavily on her mind. No pun intended. Basically she is scared shitless. Scared that if she doesn’t get to a normal weight, she’ll have a fatal heart attack as well. I am only 25, I definitely need my Mommy around for many more years. I don’t know what I’d do without her. She is important in so many people’s lives.
Together, I believe we can lose our weight. All we need to do is to put our heads to it. Doing it together will help immensely, but we also have to be able to continue on our own at our individual homes.
With my meal planning, I think it will help keep me on track too. Hopefully there will be fewer spur of the moments to fast food. I am also going to the gym and even running a little bit. I am not exercising nearly as much as when I initially lost my weight, but at least I am staying active. A little is better than none. It may take longer, but I’m okay with that.
My goal is to be back at my goal weight by the time Peter and I go to Florida in November. It will give me something to work hard toward. Like a reward for getting back to a healthy weight. That gives me 2 & 1/2 months to lose almost 20lbs. Let’s hope I can keep to it!! If I don’t manage to lose all the weight by our trip, that’s okay too, I just hope to have made a good start
Please wish my Mom and I luck on our upcoming weigh journey. WE CAN DO IT!
