Better Me v2.0 Week 1

As promised, I'm taking charge and getting back on track.  I'm down 2.3lbd this week!  It feels great to be back and have a goal.  While my larger goals include losing the weight I've gained and ultimately continuing to reach my goal weight; my short term goal right now is to track everything and to change my middle number.  Small yet attainable goals will keep me motivated.

Stay tuned to see how I do this week!

Coming Clean and a Fresh Start

 A little over two years ago  I started my weight loss journey and joined weight watchers.   Within the first year, I lost 95 pounds and I was so  beyond proud of myself.  



 Sometime after the first year, I stopped tracking and weighing and measuring.  As a result, I have gained back 40 pounds.   I am disgusted with myself; after working so hard. I threw it away without much thought.   Each week I weigh in and see the scale creep up, pound by pound, and say this week I'll get back on track.  Here we are another year later and  while I can still say I've lost 50+ pounds, I'm not okay with it.  

 It's time to seriously get back on track.   I'm hoping this post is the start of my revamp.   Not only do I want  to lose the 40 pounds I put back on,  I want to hit my goal.   I can, and I will, but I need help.   That's why am going to start blogging again and I hope you'll follow my #weightlossjourney to a #betterme.   I'd love to hear any tips, tricks or anything that's worked for you to help you stay on track.  

My cast comes off  tomorrow and with that I hope I'll be able to get back on the treadmill at least three nights a week.   I'll start off with just walking and hopefully be able to start on my couch to 5K program all over again soon.  

 Wish me luck I'm going to need it!
