It's all new!

Okay, so maybe it's not "all" new. I finally went back to Weight Watchers. I had not been to that meeting house in so long, that they no longer had my booklet. I had to start all over again. New folder, new books, new everything. Honestly, I couldn't ask for a better situation. There is nothing to remind me of past failures. It's a clean state. Joan, my WW leader (who is incredibly awesome) thought this was a great thing...a fresh new start. Just what I needed! So, I've been doing really well with Core today, and I hope it continues. We'll see if I survive happy hour tomorrow...

Also, I've decided not to pay too much attention to the scale. Sometimes, you can find a way to cheat the scale: no water, skipping lunch, etc...but you can't cheat THE TAPE MEASURE. In an effort to reduce my chub and how it rubs I am going to start measuring myself every 2 weeks. I think that will be the best medicine for defeating the chub rub.

And I think I've decided what my reminder will be. Let me start off by saying that I really wanted to find something that could be with me at all times. I believe I'm going to buy myself a ring. I found several nice ones on ETSY, I'm just waiting for the "right" one to show up (I'm not all that into jewelry). There is a woman who will customize a saying or a word on a simple ring, but I can't think of anything that would give me purpose without calling out "hey, I'm trying to loose the chunk". If I think of something, I might do that.

Congrats on going back to WW. I'm glad you are excited, and seeing it as a fresh start and enjoying core. I LOVE the idea of getting a ring as a symbol for you. I really find my key chain from WW to be empowering. Go you!

Congrats on getting back. I hope going to the meetings again helps you.
I think a ring is a great reminder for you. I hope you're able to find something soon.

How about an acronym? Maybe something like CYSITTLW, NIDWTTT! for "Can't You See I'm Trying To Lose Weight, No I Don't Want To Try That!" or something like that. Maybe something more cheerful, like ATHLETE or IN TRAINING or SVELTE. As you can see, I have no idea, but damn, I am proud of you for going back to WW. I need to do the same, don't I?

I think it's great that you went back to ww and that you can do a new start. That's motivating. What about 'Tri like you get paid' on your ring? TriLYGP? lol

I think 'hope' would be a great word for your ring--hope that you'll have a new life, hope that things will continue to go well. But I adore the word hope and all it encompasses. Not the watered down, "Well, I hope that works out okay for you," but the core meaning of hope.
