Breaking My SilenceOctober 04, 2012
Wow, I can't believe it has been so long since I last wrote. I guess I wanted to keep Lily's birthday video up as long as possible! I hope you enjoyed it. Her birthday party was amazing... fit for a princess with lots of friends and family to help her celebrate. There will be pictures coming. I promise!
Since then things have been crazy around here. There were the 1 and 5 year old appointments to be had for both kiddos. And we've all been sick. Tuesday was actually the first day in a week and a half that everyone was back at daycare/school/work!
On top of it all I've been working, working, and working some more. And so... the blog and sadly Weight Watchers in general has been a
little a lot neglected. I'm lucky that I'm holding steady, but I've been around the same 2 pounds - still 20 pounds to go back to goal - now for pretty much the entire summer. I need to break on through, and at the risk of sounding like I'm making excuses, I just can't seem to make it happen right now with all the extra "stuff" going on. Weight Watchers before Lily, and Weight Watchers after Lily is sure a different experience.
Initially I was so "not OK" with that. I was angry with my results. But I've come to accept that this is a different journey than it was before, and this time it is going to take me longer, and so I've made peace with that fact, even if I still feel frustrated at times.
Next week, I am off to North Carolina again for appointments with Lily - similar to what we did back in April. Lily and I will be taking a little vacation after the appointments to the beach. We are so ready for a break, and some time in the sand and sun.
My vacation plan is to simple and something that CWWL (Crazy Weight Watchers Leader if you need a reminder) taught me. If you are simply replacing a "normal" meal that you'd eat, eat like you would at home. If it's a celebration, than take the time to eat what you enjoy. I think that's amazing advice for a balanced life!
