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.
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.
