Weight Loss Wednesdays ~ I'm Baa-aack

Well hello friends!  I never really meant to stop blogging here, but I was stalled in my weight-loss journey and then I gave up blogging for a while.  I'm refocusing and restarting the weight-loss journey.  I plan to post here at least once a week, joining up for Weight Loss Wednesdays with Alicia and maybe other days to share healthy recipes as they come up.

I'm so proud of my friend Alicia at Confessions of a Snowflake for starting her journey and sharing about it so openly on her blog.  I really appreciate that she asked people to join in because it was just the push that I needed!

I'm just now getting back on track so this will be a week of transition for me.  I started Weight Watchers online yesterday (I've done WW many times and had good success in the past, but like anything else it will only work if you are ready for it) and am learning the new Points Plus program.  I will eventually list the Points Plus values for my recipes in addition to the old WW points that are currently listed.  So I have no weigh-in results for you since I just started (re-started).

Hubs added me to his gym membership this past weekend - yikes!!  That means I really have to go now - LOL!  I went for the first time today.  I really didn't want to - the old self-conscious thing was kicking in.  But I was DEtermined to at least get there today and walk in and get on the elliptical machine!  And I DID!  Woo  Hoo!  That is progress for me.  I did about 30 minutes on the machine and nothing else 'cause I want to ease into it.  Oh and I should mention that I WALKED to the gym - yes I did!  Such a looonnngg walk - took 7 minutes from my front door to the gym door - LOL!

I'm happy with my start, but the food thing isn't going to be easy.  I'm having a hard time being disciplined lately.  I should have some goals set, but I don't yet.  I'll share some goals next week, Lord willing.

Anyway, that's where I'm at right now!  Thank you Alicia for doing this!  Stop by her place to see how her journey is going and to get some encouragement.  And you can link up your own weight loss posts too.

Thanks for stopping by!  Are you on a weight loss journey?  What successes did you have this week?

Have a healthy day,
Lisa  :)
