Formerly known as ‘Losing It’. 🙂
So, I’ve decided to rename this…section I guess you could call it. I think that Weighing In is a better representation than Losing It. I mean, I plan on losing it, but I’m aiming for more of a lifestyle change.
I am pretty sure that the last time I update was in January, 2012 – over 2 years ago.
Since then, I’ve kept 50 lbs off and unfortunately, I went back to a lot of old habits.
I am not one to beat myself up about it though. I’m human, ya know?
And I like cake.
And I stress eat. And we eat out a lot – which also needs to change.
This change I am not looking forward to because I am no cook. I’m not even going to pretend, I am horrible.
This one time, I both burned and under-cooked potatoes for a family brunch. It’s a talent that I know everyone is jealous of. It was also incredibly embarrassing and something that, luckily, my sister and brother in law have not let me live down.
I am, however, willing to try and hopefully not poison my husband while I attempt new recipes.
So far, he is still breathing. I would say that my recent ventures in cooking have been a success! He may not agree, but I haven’t personally hated anything I’ve tried to make recently.
My new insurance is an HMO with a healthy option. In order to remain in the ‘enhanced’ benefit level we need to work on certain aspects of our health. For me, it’s weight. Everything else is good. Even my A1C has been good. To help the members meet their healthy goals, they will pay for Weight Watchers.
So tomorrow I am going to try to join Weight Watchers and will begin going to meetings and everything either later in the week or next week.
It’s been years since I’ve been in Weight Watchers and I know a lot has changed. I’m worried that I will have a hard time only because of the Diabetes.
I’ll see though.
More updates to come soon. 2014…my year to shine!
Till next time…
