Weight Watchers

I don’t think I have mentioned it on the blog but the first week of December I joined Weight Watchers. After losing 35 pounds on my own I was needing another source of support and motivation. I am so glad I rejoined. Yes this is the 3rd time that I have joined. But before we celebrate let me tell you a story. Last week I had a 1.8 pound gain. I sat in my weight watchers meeting frustrated and angry. I was quitting. Just like I had in the past. But then something else happened. I got some new thought in my mind that I was in this situation because I always gave up. Then I reviewed last weeks food journal and realized I had way too much sodium and wine last week which I knew had a lot to do with the weight gain. Then I read some weight loss stories about consistency. I started thinking that if I was a little more consistent and persevered in my goal I would eventually make it to my finish line. Just like I had with running my 6k. So my thoughts changed my actions and I got back on track. When I weighed in today the scale said 3.8 pounds lost. I reached my 5% goal for weight watchers.
Of course I am happy I worked really hard for that. But I know this is still my journey and I am not giving up on my dream….either should you. Will you be here to celebrate my 10% loss?

End of an Era

Today is my last day at a job I have had for almost 4 years. Leaving is hard. I have made some really good friends. I have a lot of great memories. It is bittersweet to leave. I fear the unknown of my new position. The starting all over again. If it didn’t feel right in my gut I wouldn’t be doing this. But I wish I knew what I was doing or where I was going! Monica of runeatrepeat.com posted about callings yesterday and Stacy commented with this quote that inspires me. May it do the same for you. “And therein lies the best career advice I could possibly dispense: just DO things. Chase after the things that interest you and make you happy. Stop acting like you have a set path, because you don’t. No one does. You shouldn’t be trying to check off the boxes of life; they aren’t real and they were created by other people, not you.” – Charlie Hoehn
So with that I am not making goals to check off my list today. Instead I am enjoying the end of an era.
