I'm Going Going Back Back to......WW.

Yes my friends, that is true.  Last night I signed back up for weight watchers.

I have always wanted to go back but didn't want to go back and gain.  I am so dumb...I wanted to lose weight and be lower than I was at my last ww meeting just so I could prove that I didn't reallllly need ww to be successful.

HA!

Guess what....since my last ww meeting....I gained...a lot.

Since the last time I weighed in....I gained...a lot.


Time to be real:



I gained 17lbs since the my last ww meeting December 2011 and 27lbs since my last weigh in.

Something seems odd.  To gain 27lbs in 2 months?! I think my original 258 weigh in was wrong.  Or I'm in denial. (This is so embarrassing) :(

I can blame it on my back injury or I can just man up and say I could have done better.

I COULD HAVE DONE BETTER.  I could have...

The only thing I can do now is just acknowledge it, accept it and MOVE FORWARD.

Of course I knew my ww weigh in would be terrible so I came prepared.  I dressed in my workout gear and headed to the gym for a workout right after the meeting.  Of course it was an awesome sweat sesh. I was mad at myself and figured the best punishment should take place at the gym.  So I punished myself...

45 minutes on the elliptical
weights
and a drippy sweaty face

It was really fun to use my polar heart rate monitor for the first time!  I could see what my heart rate was and how hard I had to work to get it in the right place.  For my age, my target heart rate is 135-165.  I was right on the dot!  You can calculate your target heart rate here: Target Heart Rate
If anyone thinks this is wrong, please let me know!  I was clueless and had to google it...so I am hoping this is correct. :)


Ughhhh this weightloss junk is SO HARD!  I guess if it was easy then everyone would be at a normal weight.

The only thing any of us can do is support each other and keep going.  Never give up.
