All about "being healthy"

I don't like talking about my weight on here. And don't worry, I won't do it a lot. I just have to say, though, that it is just way too easy to slip back into old habits all too quickly. Like tonight after I got the kids to bed...are you ready for this...I turned on my gas stove and roasted marshmallows so that I could eat not one but TWO s'mores. Somehow I don't think that's going to get me to my goal. I know now why they have weight watchers meetings every week. It really is like an addiction sometimes. I am not comparing my plight with Hershey's to the struggle of alcoholism, but I do see that the 12 steps guy was onto something. There is just something important about being in it together with other people who share your struggle and are going to urge you on.

Once again, Troy and Gabriella of the High School Musical trilogy had it right when they proclaimed the universal truth, "We're all in this together."

Where would I be without HSM? It leads me and guides me - it plays over and over in my head and on my van DVD player each and every day.

Anyway, long story longer...I need to get back on the WW wagon. For my own sake!

We are in this together. Back to meetings tomorrow. Admitting the problem is the first step! Unfortunately I slipped too and had a double cheeseburger from McD's. Tomorrow is a new day and we will start fresh!

I don't know how new it is, but I am LOVING the new background. (My eyes just need the background to be lighter than the text)

Oh yeah, great content, too. : )
