Reflections on my Jan. 1, 2008 goal

Ahhh my goal for Jan. 1, 2008. I was to be at 179.9 or less. This morning I was at 183.6. Nope, I don't think I'm going to make it. I will get there ifs ands or buts about it! I do know that some of the weight this morning was water retention. I didnt' drink near enough water yesterday....and that really does have an effect on my weight. But...still, not the three pounds I would need to get to my goal.

I was close to making the goal...about a week ago. And while I didn't fall off the wagon, I slipped up and started eating my flex points. For me, if I eat those flex points I gain. That's just how my body seems to work. And on top of eating those extra 2-4 flex points each day, I stopped working out! EEEKK! I had grand plans each and every day to exercise...but each and every day my plans got thrown out the window.

The holidays were a great time. However, I'm very happy to be heading back into a more normal routine of in which I can manage my eating and my exercise in a better fashion. :-) I spent some time planning out the weeks menu..and grocery we should be good for the coming week with eating at home. :-) I'm focused, renewed and ready to do it!

I'm hoping to stay super focused and exercise my tail end off (literally I guess) and knock myself into the healthy weight range....relatively quickly! I'm utterly sick of paying $40 a month for my weight watchers membership...I have different uses for that money! (I could be saving put towards my new house!)
