Breaking My Silence

October 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!
