Me bad

I know I have been remiss in posting here, and that is bad. For me. This was supposed to be a way for me to keep on track!! Be accountable to myself. Well, I've been fiddle farting around and not being very serious, and as a result, the scales are going in the wrong direction. I was feeling pretty cocky after several desserts on Thanksgiving resulted in no change, but it takes awhile for all those calories to settle in. Sigh.
The good news is, while trying on clothes the other day, NOTHING FIT. Not because they were too tight, they were way too BIG. This is what is called a non scale victory. My mother used to say my load has shifted! How true. I've never worked so hard trying on clothes. And wouldn't it be a day when no clerk came by every few minutes asking if I needed any other sizes. Oh, well, it was enough for me to know something is going right.

So, once again we start anew. Dieting IS alot of work and takes alot of effort to keep on track.


  1. *sigh* Tell me about it. I was the person who was always I could eat anything at all...until I turned 40 and then pushed 50 and the metabolism seemed to go wacky. Hard to believe I wasn't even 100 and wore a size ZERO gown that was even altered to be smaller!!! UGH.........I have gone SO far the other direction now.

  2. Well, it's never to late to give it another try, Linda. Just remember that nothing is necessarily off limits - you just need to compromise a little in other areas if you indulge in the D-word or the C-word (dessert and chocolate), LOL. As for me, my first three weeks at Weight Watchers has helped me lose 7 pounds. My clothes are more comfortable. I'm eyeing the next size down and hope to get into it by the end of the year. Yes, I plan to be good (not perfect, just good) through the Holidays. I've discovered homemade applesauce.... :-)
