Thursday, Dec. 4, 2008

So far so good on being back on track today! I have not journaled, but have been in control. I was late leaving the house this morning because I was determined to pack my lunch (and dinner for tonight) so I would be prepared. I made meatloaf for dinner last night, so I brought leftovers with two slices of bread for a sandwich for lunch, and a Lean Cuisine for dinner. I have plenty of FiberOne bars and apples, oranges, and a grapefruit for snacks. Oh, yeah, and plenty of water. I have not been drinking water at all, so I've SO got to get back on track with that.

I balanced our meager budget last night, and I don't think I'm going to be able to afford to re-join the next session of our WW at work. It's only $105 for 10 meetings, and they'll split payment (half in Dec/half in Jan). But honestly, I can't afford to spend $52.50 right now. The bills that NEED to be paid next week will not wait, and it will take every dime of money we have to pay them. Needless to say, I'm kind of bummed about that. I know I can try to do it from home, but I need the motivation and accountability I get from the meetings. And the AT WORK meetings are so convenient, in our school Library right after school. I'm going to email the coordinator today to see if I can work something out.

I finally got my paper turned in, and am going to get started now on the one I have due on Monday. That will be the last one. I'm transferring to a local school next semester to finish my Master's, so I'll have a break from school after 12/15, which will be MUCH needed.

I've been trying to catch up on all the blogs I've been missing, and I'm so motivated by how some of you continue to have awesome success. I am also encouraged by those of you who continue to fall and pick themselves up (like me). It feels good to know I'm not alone in this struggle.

Oh, and I've figured out my mantra for the New Year. Looking Fine in 2009! This year it was Losing Weight in 2008, which I did! This is the first year since I had Kalela (in 2005), that I've started the new year weighing LESS than I did the year before! I would still LOVE to be under 300 by Jan. 1, but I'm afraid that falling off for the past month or so has killed that dream. But I'm still hopeful!

Hope the WW coordinator can help you out so you won't have to quit your meetings, I know how important they can be. I'm a member of TOPS which is a lot cheaper than WW but it sounds like WW is the most convenient choice for you. It just sounds like you have so much on your plate right I can only imagine how tough it must be. I love your "looking fine in 2009". As for meeting your 300 goal just keep shooting for it, you never know. Way to go on packing your food for work too. You reminded me I have a bag of grapefruit in the cabinet, hope they aren't rotten lol.
