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  :)


  1. Good for you my friend. I know you can do this. And I'm constantly on a weight loss journey. LOL! I don't feel bad but it would be nice to lose 10--15lbs.
    You are going to do great!

  2. Great start my friend! I'm so intimidated by gyms. I belonged to one years ago. But now I mostly walk. I'm sure I'll do something else eventually. Anyway thanks for the kind words.& thanks for joining us. (((hugs))) to you my friend!

  3. Hello! I found you from the Weight Loss Wednesday link up! Congratulations for starting your journey with Weight Watchers again. I know it can be difficult at first, but maybe focus on one or two things at a time. It will get easier (as I am sure you know).

    I am your newest follower. I hope you might follow me back on my health blog so that we can encourage one another. You can find me here:

  4. I have been trying to get back on the WW bandwagon for the last few weeks. I get started and then halfway through the day lose my focus. I think it's all the snow and no sun. I need to get out of this house!!!


Leave a comment and say hello! I'd love to hear from you!
