I had that "click" moment today. The weather outside is beautiful and warm (pretty rare for Washington state!) I went to go put some capri pants on that I wore last summer, and I couldn't even pull them over my hips, much less button them.
God, it was so depressing. I know I've gained weight in the last several months, but as I'm sure you all know, it's easy to avoid it by buying new clothes or just not looking in the mirror. Today, I faced the truth, and the truth is UGLY!! Blech.
About a year ago I lost about 15 or so pounds working out almost every day and eating a very restrictive diet (around 1200 cals a day). I felt amazing, but it was so hard to keep up (obviously, since I've gained it all back PLUS 10 pounds).
I've made the decision to join Weight Watchers, as I need to be held accountable by publicly weighing in and knowing someone is going to be keeping track of me. Plus, I like that fact that it supports steady weight loss, not a "quick fix". I did it about 7 years ago with my mom, and lost 15 pounds in about 3 months. Now my mom lives about 2 hours away from me, so I don't have a buddy to be my support system. I'm writing this because I'm hoping I can find that support system here!
Sorry for this long novel. I'm hoping that by writing this, I will put this whole thing into motion and really stick with it this time. Thanks everyone for listening (er...reading)!
