Getting back on the Weight Watchers Wagon

For years I have struggled with my weight so much so that I often thought if I could just close my mouth to food I would be much better off.  But in reality that is not a solution to the problem.  So two years ago I joined weight watchers.  At the time I was nearing 13 stone! Yes you read that correctly, today I am 9 stone 9 ( I hope ) I have recently fallen off the wagon in terms of watching my weight and following any sort of exercise regime.  So I am starting back in to this all over again – when I last hopped on the scales I was 9 stone 9 and whilst I am hoping that I have remained that weight I don’t feel it.  Lets be honest, nothing will tell you quicker that you have put up weight than your clothes; not even your friends will tell you as quickly or as honestly.  All my clothes are telling me to get off my ass and walk.

So I am jumping back on the wagon and watching what I am eating.  As I am home most days at the moment I am finding the urge to dip in to the biscuit tin alittle too tempting.  I am even cheating my own tracker – but lets be honest I am fooling no one except myself.   
I have also found that it is important to track what you are eating so that you can get an understanding of your eating habits and cravings that may happen.   Today I am tracking quite well and I am hoping that this will continue for the rest of this day. I am realistic enough to know that I can only take one day at a time and that is what I intend to do.
So after this post – I am heading out for a walk and take in the sunny weather that we have finally managed to get.   I find that walking is the best way to not only lose weight but also relieve stress and clear my head.

It is hard to admit that you have fallen off the wagon and it is even harder at times to get back on that wagon after re-developing those bad habits that you had worked so hard to get rid of.  But here I am ready to get back on it and hoping against hope that I don’t fall off again. 

Wish me luck
