Same Song

Dragged my sorry butt back to Weight Watchers on Saturday. A friend joined me. We're hoping the buddy system will help inspire us.

The bad news is I gained 2 of the 7 lbs I lost. Yikes. At least I went back before it was the entire 7 lbs++.

One of the biggest challenges I have is the amount of time and effort it takes to cook healthy, great tasting food. For supper this evening, my daughter and I had baked haddock with lemon and olive oil, brown rice and brocolli Yumm. And I'm full. But what a mess in the kitchen.

My oldest also has an infection from her wisdom teeth extraction which isn't fun. Hoping the massive amount of antibiotics she's taking will bring it under control without a second operation to drain the infection. My youngest fell out of bed the other night and has been complaining of back pain. If it doesn't soon improve, I'll be visiting the dr with her next week. And she's very cranky.

I'm planning a brisk walk this evening. Need a little space and fresh air from my ailing and complaining children.

But you're still down 5 lbs, which is great! Don't get discouraged. You can do this. I know you can!

Wow, your girls are having a rough go of it this week. Hope they start feeling better soon. :-)

Oh, don't even get me started on the weight gain. It's all winter's fault. I get cold, I get depressed and I want to eat.

Congrats on not gaining back all your weight. I'd be thrilled if all I'd gained over the winter was two pounds.

You can do it!!

I hear ya on the weight gain and hopefully the buddy system will work. I find I'm much more motivated to go to the gym when my workout buddy goes. Now if I could just find someone to rip those snacks out of my hand...

Why is weight always such a struggle for some people? When I lost weight all those years ago, I never thought I'd ever have to do it again. It seems that with every life change and challenge the weight control issue rears it's ugly head.

I'm with you on the time-and-mess turn-off to cooking healthy meals. I adore eating good-for-me food. But oh, how I hate to cook it.
