I'm a Weight Watchers Lifetime Member I achieved my goal weight in July of 2009, losing over 60lbs. Over five years I have slowly slipped back to my old habits, putting back on 40lbs.
This is about my comeback from weight loss failure to success.

Sorry for the blog silence, I've had a very rough week. It all started last Tuesday (the 1st), with my car needing $700 in work! Ouch, but if it keeps the car on the road another 6+ months it'll be worth it. Then this past Monday my car door was frozen, Todd broke the driver's side door handle. Sigh. The worst of all, was this Tuesday. I took my 15 year old cat Cuddles into the vet to have a sore on his front leg checked out. It was heartbreaking, but I had to have him put down. There was an infection and several other issues. I cried and cried and cried! That was the hardest thing I've ever had to do. I've caught myself doing some emotional eating at times. Then at times I'm not eating until my stomach growls. Food has been weird and exercise scarce. The result of this is being up 1 lb this week. I guess I can consider that a victory of sorts seeing as I could of just gone overboard.
I'm doing it again, hopping on a plane tomorrow morning to go and visit my friend inin Arizona!!! After the week I had,I need a vacation and some SUN! I'm looking forward to seeing Kathy, heading up to Phoenix(ish) to see my good friend Judie who is down there on vacation right now. There's a little trip to The Attic (needlework store) planned as well! Can't wait for some retail therapy!
Don't worry, there will be lots of pictures when I get back!
Oh yeah did I mention that next weekend is the annual Knowledge and Needles March retreat! So I'll be coming home on Thursday and hopping in the car Friday to go stitch with my friends! What a whirlwind.
