I've made a big decision.
One I've made a few times already since moving to Auckland.
This time I have decided to stick to it.
I'm going back... to Weight Watchers.
There's two reasons I am going back.
1. I've made a DEAL with someone. If that person stops smoking, I will lose 30 kilos this year. I know I can do it. I hope she can too.
2. I am tired of feeling like I'm a failure.
My nearest meeting (in Manurewa), is only held at night, and I'm not that happy with the location and lack of parking, so I'm going to attend the Papakura meeting on a Wednesday morning. It's not too far away, it has lots of parking and it fits in with my patchwork classes.
So. Tomorrow I go, weigh in and stick to it.
If I don't feel like I 'click' with the meeting/members/leader... TOO BAD for me. I must stick it out.
So, today I am going to hunt out all my WW's books etc and sort them out.
I know things have changed in the past few years since I last went... points have changed etc. So, tomorrow I will see how much things have changed and go from there I suppose.
The main tool to use to be successful is TRACKING... so I shall certainly be getting myself a tracking book tomorrow. I hope they still have them? Anyone know?
Today I am getting the kids to help with some housework. Mostly vacuming, dusting, polishing, a few windowsills, and so on. It will keep them occupied for a while, and help me out.
Yaaa. All the jobs are done. It helped that Kelly and Rena arrived and helped too.
I've now sent Kelly down to the local KFC to get some lunch. I'm starving.
Let's call it my last evil meal... cos tomorrow the 'real' diet starts again.
I was freakin' tired after lunch, so I had a nap. Amazing considering how much noise was going on with the kids! Apparently I snore. Pffffft.
Steve is cooking dinner... he got home from work early today.
So, I've been preoccupied lately, feel like I'm neglecting my blog. But... sometimes my mind is elsewhere and stuff is going on that just makes posting during the day ... unimportant.
Bex is now getting lots of 'practise' tightenings. My niece is also not far off having her baby.
Another family member is on my mind constantly.
My Mum keeps ringing me... which is nice, but the conversations sometimes make me worry more (Mum's FINE btw).
Stuff... GOING ON.
Today all I've really done is THINK. And worry about so much that I can do nothing about. It does my head in.
Time to call it a day and get to bed.
End of Day: glad all the housework got done if nothing else. And it was nice having Kelly and Rena here too.
Rena was a lovely little helper today... I had her doing jobs, and she loved it. Weird kid.
