It's been a while...

I feel it has been forever since I posted.  Lots has happened.  Went to some weddings, went away, had really good times away.  And I will say, I was quite worried in terms of my weight and being away.  And yes...when I went away I gained!  To be expected I think.  But the thing is, I have gained a pound or two some weeks, and then lost that weight the next.  So I am no further ahead in my weight-loss then when summer began in June.  But...I am also no further behind.  I am pretty much at the exact same weight.  I have overall managed to maintain and that is a good feeling.  

Today I weighed in exactly at 140.  My lowest ever thus far on this weight watchers program has been 139.4.  Gosh...the 130's again.  I am almost there!  Although that of course means I have to lose a daily point.  So I will be at 19 points once I hit those 130's, and I am not looking forward to that. 19  That is hard to do.  But I am really going to try this week, and journal and keep track of everything I eat.  I am so bad at eating candy at work, a piece here, a piece there...and I don't count it.  So this week if I eat a piece of candy...then I need to write that down.  And my other goal for the week is to drink my 2 litres of water a day.  I LOVE water I have decided, yet I struggle to drink it.  I just need to carry around a water bottle with me and it will get done.  Plus, I need to get back into the routine of the gym.  I have really fallen off the waggon with this one, and I need to re-start.  I usually enjoy going to the gym, I feel so good afterwards.  So I need to remember that feeling when I am tired from a long day.

As there is really only 2 weeks of summer until September left (can't believe that!) I am going to try really hard in these next two weeks.  My goal for weight-loss is going to be 1.5 pounds total.  That is only 0.7/0.8 each week.  Totally doable.  I decided a long time ago that I was going to stick with weight watchers for one year, and then re-assess.  Somehow my year is going to be in November, and although I totally thought I would be at my goal long before that, I am really happy at how far I have come.  I have lost 22.4 pounds, and managed to keep it off.  That is pretty damn good if I do say so myself!
