I’m hanging on, but struggling just a little bit recently. I got started on some bad eating habits when I got my new job, and have been using that as a reason to continue. Silly, I know. At first, I said I was celebrating the new job. Then I said I just didn’t have time to eat well with all of the extra work I am doing. Finally, I decided I needed to eat to combat the stress of the new job. All in all, we’re talking major denial on my part. And major excuse making. 🙂

But still, the tale of the tape is not too shabby at all. I’m still down 12 pounds this year. If I can continue just this, it’ll be the first time in a long time that I end a year at a lower weight than I started. I have a whole lot of infoporn to write about later. For now, I’ll just say that things are going better than they have recently. That’s still something to hang my hat on.

Also, we are starting up a Weight Watchers at Work program. I am so in. I already paid and got my materials. I’m looking forward to working officially with the program again. Today was the informational meeting, where they try to get as many people to sign up as they can. The leader asked if anyone wanted to share their goals, or what they wanted to get out of this session. And I couldn’t say anything, because I realized that I would probably tear up if I did. I need help getting this weight off. I need help getting healthy again. And what I really want out of this session is reinforcement that I can actually do this again.

It’ll be interesting to see where I go from here…
