A REALLY longtime

It's been a really long time since I last posted on my blog ~ since December 24th last year, in fact.

I've done a lot in that time ~ did lots of knitting, sewing and various other things. Just haven't felt the desire to blog.

I've also gained lots of weight. That's probably why I haven't wanted to blog. Knew I wanted to talk about it and do something about it, but it wasn't till last week that I joined back up with Weight Watchers (I can't seem to do the weight loss thing on my own). Went to a meeting yesterday and after really paying attention to what I'm eating, drinking and doing a bit of exercise, I gained a pound. Very disappointing and felt like what's the use, if I'm going to just gain weight.

So, I'm going to be blogging about it. I need some accountability and what better way but to make it known. I don't want to say how much I weigh, it's such a source of shame and pain for me, but know that secrets do me absolutely no good if I don't admit where I am. Then you can see the progress I've made.

I'm weighing 181 pounds as of yesterday. There. It's out. Done.

My goal is at least 30 pounds, but I'm going to do it one pound at a time. I'm also going to post a picture (much as I hate to do it) so that in a few months I can look back and see the progress I've made. Need my son or dil to take the picture and they aren't around at the moment, so I'll do it next post.

Today I also started an exercise video ~ Jillian Michaels ~ and plan to go back to the gym (I don't want to do that either at this weight, lots of pride involved).

I plan to post a few times a week just to check in ~ if you're interested in doing this with me, let me know so I can cheer you on too!



  1. You are so brave!!!! I too have got to lose at least 30lbs. I just started working out with my sister in law who is a personal trainor. I am too chicken to post a picture.....I will be following your progress and cheering you on!

  2. You are amazing and brave and strong! I am so proud of you for taking these steps. And thank you for sharing too. It's a hard thing to do, I know.

    P.S. I happy to see you back in this space. Hope to see more of your beautiful sewing/knitting projects.

  3. Just had to comment here...I've not been documenting my own weight loss journey on my blog, but I've also been doing WW since Sept and have lost 27lb so far....3.5lb left to get me to goal/pre pregnancy weight.
    I am so happy I made the choice to join the group rather than going it alone, it's become a wonderful little point of my week with some lovely people, Little B thinks it's marvelous!
    Anyhow....wanted to wish you the BEST of luck, I really hope you succeed in your quest!
    lots of love
