A Reality Check for Me

Good morning crafters.  I hope that everyone is having a great day so far.  It is lovely out there and despite the long weekend being over, it is more pleasant to get back on track when it is nice out. Yesterday I had a reality check that knocked the wind out my my sails.  I have always struggled with my weight and up until I got sick, I had it under the control.  But since I got sick and especially since the last relapse when my legs went squirrelly for me, I have let myself go so to speak.  There isn’t much vanity in me, so I don’t dwell in the mirror.  But yesterday my dear niece posted pictures of their vacation in here at the city.  Some of the pictures included some of us from a BBQ we had there.  One of them had a picture of her and I.  I took a good look at myself and cried.  I realized that it is time to take control of my weight!!! I can’t exercise like I used to, but I can control what I am eating!!!

Jim is a supportive husband. When he found me crying I showed him the picture and all I said was,  ‘it is time’.  He said, ‘we had fun putting on the weight and now we will have to work to take it off’.  So today we start our weight loss journey.  We are joining Weight Watchers!!!! This is going to be a bit of an up hill battle for me with my legs not what they used to be but I won’t let that discourage me.

Here are the pictures that knocked me on my butt:




So, watch out, Weight Watchers, here we come!!!!

Thanks for peeking in

    I was looking for my

    old WW stuff last night after I weighed in at the clinic 20lbs heavier than a few months ago. I have more to lose than I have to keep now 😦
