Moment of truth

I've finally done it. I've rejoined Weight Watchers. To make a long story short, I joined about 4 or 5 years ago and lost about 3.5 stone fairly easily. I was helping out by being a clerk at the meeting too. Then I hit a wall and started to struggle and graduallly over the next two years the weight was slowly creeping on. Then 18months ago I pulled out of helping at the meeting. And gave up going altogether. Joined again a year ago but gave up almost immediately.

I'm now a stone heavier than Iwas when I originally started. I've got a fewhealth problems including underactive thyroid which is not properly controlled by medication yet (workign on it) and in the last year since I've had thyroid problems I've put on another 2 stone.

It's been a difficult decision to go back andeven harder to walk back through the door. But I loved it. I knowthe clerks and the leader as Iworked with them before and they're all lovely. A lot of the members I know from before too. Some have been good and have been going continuously and some have lapsed like me. I had a good time and I'm ready to get back on track. I've not done brillianty today food wise. but I'm not officially going to start tracking until tomorrow. Got to read through all the material first and decide which plan to do.

Problem is the meeting was long this morning and I came home in a lot of pain and very tired. So I've not done much since I came home. Even struggling with knitting today. My neck has jsut been so much worse over hte last fewdays.

I wanted to walk the dog before going to school but Ithink walking to and from school is the only walk she is going to get today. Icould take the car but I'll be good and walk.

And I've joined a new KAL, the Victorian Lace Today KNitalong. It looks like a nice KAL. Fairly big but friendly. I've not joined too many KALS before but this one sounds like fun. I'm on my first project, Alpine scarf, from the book and I've planned my next two. I'm going to end up with a huge number of Victorian shawls. M ysister and my mum have chosen the ones theywant too. Unfortuantely I can't remember which ones they were. LOL. I will knit them one each but not yet. Me first.

In too much pain to type anymore now and I'm sure you don't want me ranting on either. Have a lovely Knitting Day.

Good luck Anni. My weight wants to go up and down. I bought a pair of jeans and they are tight (did not want them that way) but I wear them and remember not to eat that bowl of ice cream or chocolate bar if I want them comfortable.

Good luck with the weight watchers. Just remember, put down the food and pick up the knitting!

Thank you ladies. I need all hte encouragement I can get. I've not done too badly so far (only day 2 though) but there are times of the day when I struggle. And I can easily manage to eat and knit at the same time.LOL.
