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.

If you look closely, every day has a little lesson for us.
After being a Weight Watchers member for over 3 years now I learnt that I cannot buy sweet temptations in more than single servings. Today was officialEat a Cinnamon Bun in front of Dani Day. Twice someone was sitting/standing right next to me eating a cinnamon bun! Oh my gosh the second time this happened I was ready to die, just wishing the ground would open up and swallow me whole, I wanted one THAT badly! It was such a bad craving that on my way home from work I stopped at a local grocery store known for descent baked goods (I wasn't having just any cinnamon bun, it had to be a good one if I'm going to have one) and picked up a pack of 4 from the bakery (sadly I couldn't buy just one as I would of liked). I couldn't even wait to get home I ate one BIG gooey, sticky icing covered tasty bun as I drove home (not an easy job in a 5-speed manual). By the time I got home I had another 1/4 of a bun.
This is just the perfect reminder that I can only have sweet treats in controlled servings or where I can give the rest to someone else. Even after 3 years I can't buy a 4 pack and have one the next day. I have to eat them all and I have to eat them now!
Soooo, 2.75 cinnamon buns ended up smushed up in the garbage can when I got home, removed from the package and all so that I couldn't "rescue" any of them. Sabotage was necessary.
Penance, 4.6 miles on the treadmill, 3.25 of it running the rest at a brisk walk... 60 minutes of praying to the treadmill gods.
