You see over the past 12 years I have attempted to use the WW plan to lose weight (mind you this is not the plan's fault...just saying). It seems I was on a roller coaster...lose 20 lbs, start feeling good, stop tracking, gain it back (and then some). Repeat!
But now it seems that I have finally broken the cycle! As my best friend's hubby says, "Praise be!"
Looking back over the past year, I remember lots of successes...some huge, some not so huge. But I also remember the struggles. And I also remember my family and friends who encouraged me during those struggles and those who told me I couldn't do it on my own. God has provided a support system that I didn't even realize I needed. One of the things that I have learned since attending the meetings is that I need to ask for help. Asking for help was one of the first things I saw on a board when I began attending meetings. What a novel idea! When you're stuck...ask for help! And I've learned to do that and it's working people!
Okay, enough of that....a few off-topic things:
- Tonight is the first Packer pre-season game...looking forward to my sister's famous Build-Your-Own Nachos (good thing my week is just starting and I have all of my Weekly Points)
- Tomorrow we are headed to Wisconsin Dells to spend the day with my sister and her family and my cousin and her family...lots of walking and swimming...should be fun!
- A slice of lime in my water is
equally asmore refreshing than a slice of lemon.
- Roasted red pepper and Asiago chicken sausage from Sam's = YUMMY and here's the bonus 1 link = 3 PointsPlus values can you believe it? When the grill is fired up for brats and such, I'll be having these. Don't like Asiago cheese? No worries they have other flavors.
