Day 2, New Year

I've had a few people write to me privately and suggest I start blogging again. People who I have alot of love and affection and respect for. They know me well and know I need some sort of outlet for my thoughts.  This worked well for me in the weight loss/healthy living part of my life.  

I don't want to talk about where I've been and what has happened over the last six months or so.  Another good friend told me that talking about and thinking about negative experiences forces us to relive the pain and there is no good that can come of that, so that is my only New Year's resolution this year - do not visit negative memories and pain. Let it go. Concentrate on the future, on the things I can control and the changes I can make.

I joined Weight Watchers last week. They have a new program and "new" always inspires me, I am easily bored :)  It will help me keep focused and the weekly weigh ins will give me incentive. I know I should be able to do this without outside motivators and influence, and I did for a long time, but I can't right now and before I hit 300lbs, I need to get my $hit together. This is one step. 

My blogger friends Tiffany, Kerry and Erin and I are doing a 31 day tracking challenge and officially we're at Day 2, but I've been tracking since Thursday so I'm pretty pleased with that. It helps that WW now has a mobile app, I'm a techy girl :)

So I'm back on track. One day at a time.  I don't know how often I'll blog, but I'm going to read all your blogs right now and catch up with you.
Thanks, as always, for your support and friendship :)


  1. Glad to see you back, excellent mantra to look forward and not back I have always believed that myself. I love the new WW app, I'm a tracking fool since it came out.

  2. Enz!! So happy to have you back! :) The last few months have been a struggle for me too but I've been back on it for the last month! So proud of you for getting back in the saddle!

  3. Yipee!!!!! Way to come out of the hard times and put them where they need to go. How do you like the new WW program? I am currently at my lifetime goal weight, and am tempted to rejoin to get to my real goal weight. It's been years since I did Weight Watchers, but I am considering.

    Look for my weight loss/blogging story in the new issue of MORE magazine. You can buy it at Superstore or Shopper's Drug Mart. It's the Feb. issue, but out in Jan.

    Welcome back!

  4. Yay, it sounds like you're off to a great start! I'm excited to read about how you like the new WW program... I love it! :)

  5. Hang in there, hun.

    I am pretty out of touch with what is going on with you... BUT... I want you to know that I am with you all the way.

    Things will get better and we will get skinnier and happier.

    May 2011 be your year.

  6. Blogging is the best!
    Expecially a good way to get through the cold winters up there.
    I'm glad you are back!
