I am back. On weight watchers I lost approximately 17 pounds. I did not do a very good tracking or taking photos or measuring myself, so sometimes it's hard to see the progress, however I do know that I have gone from a size 10 to a size 8, that clothes that were once too tight are now a perfect fit, and that I still receive comments. It's still not enough, I want to see better numbers so I see January 1st as a reset to my weight loss. My goal is to get down to 130 pounds by my birthday. What a great present that would be.
I have not been a "good" weight watcher since last August before my trip to Israel, although I feel fortunate that I have maintained, mostly, without the plan. Right now I am sitting at 142 pounds. I joined something called the "cupid challenge" with a goal of losing 6 pounds by Valentine's day, placing me at 136. I had a knee injury and cannot exercise the way that I used to which I used as an excuse to give up, however, it's not a good enough excuse to remain inactive. My goal is to focus on a gentler fitness plan. Although I miss my aerobics classes a lot, I plan to start walking, swimming, and doing yoga/pilates at least 3 times a week. Maybe I should take some swimming classes. Anyway, here's to a newer/slimmer year. 2008 has been amazing and I have met almost all of my goals. Can't wait to see what's in store for 2009.
