2012, Here we come!

Happy New Year's Eve, friends! Can you believe we are almost in 2012? Does anyone else remember all the crazy Y2K stuff back in 1999? Gosh, that seems like FOR-EVER ago!

Anyhoo, I'm getting things all ready for the New Year and that includes making goals and resolutions for the coming year. I may not always reach the goals I set for the New Year, but I was raised with the belief that if you don't set goals for yourself you don't have anything to work towards. I don't know that I still believe that whole-heartedly, but I do still make those goals and resolutions every year.

This year, in addition to my normal goals I am also starting on my 40 by 40 list. Most of the things on that list count towards New Year's goals. Something that I think is usually on everyone's list for the new year is to get healthy, fit, lose weight..whatever you personally call it. For me, its all of those things. I need to lose a lot of weight to make myself more healthy and fit. I have had a lot of success with Weight Watchers previously, and when I work the program I see awesome results. When I start making bad choices by not working out or eating more junk and less good stuff I don't see results. So, tomorrow morning I am headed back to Weight Watchers. I will be attending meetings every Saturday morning...early. Every Friday night, we will take photos (front and side view) and measurements then Saturday mornings I will weigh in. For my exercise I will go back to what I love, yoga. I will also be starting the C25K program and I am really looking forward to that.

As part of my accountability I will be posting these pictures each week along with my weight loss and inches lost.

Week 1

I would love to hear your stories and we can support and encourage each other. I think we all know this isn't just about losing weight, but also about finding out what made us gain the weight to begin with. I will be doing the emotional work too and hopefully will see some progress in that area as well.
