Gobble, gobble

Pin It Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  I have so much to be thankful for - an amazing family, wonderful friends and a great bunch of co-workers and work for a great company.  I've also recently joined another great company (Epicure Selections) as an independent consultant.  I won't be talking Epicure on this blog (well, no more than talking about using Epicure in my recipes like I've always done!) - to keep up with my Epicure life, you can visit me The Spice of Life

I know it's been a LONG time since I've blogged.  I admit - I've been struggling with this journey since I returned from vacation (in August!!)  I lose a pound, I gain a pound....grrrrr  I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. 

Yesterday was my 3 year anniversary of joining Weight Watchers.  I'm thankful for where I am today vs where I was 3 years ago, that's for sure - I'm smaller (currently just over 120 pounds smaller), I'm healthier, I can cross my legs (both ways!), I can run up a flight (or two!) of steps without feeling like I might die, I can comfortably sit in any seat (except maybe a kiddie one!) and have "leftover" chair on either side of me, I am not afraid to try new things - whether that be tasting new things or moving my body in new ways, I'm more confident and I think I'm even happier with life in general.  I would not change the journey I've gone through over the past 3 years as I think this journey has made me who I am today.  All that being said, I need to get my head back in the game.  I still follow program and I track my food - don't get me wrong, I don't do it because anyone makes me - it's become such a habit for my Type A personality likes to check those boxes in my online tracker (when you check all the healthy guidelines you get a smiley face :) and to see the numbers...I'm such a charts and graphs kinda girl!!  BUT...clearly I'm slacking in some area...perhaps I'm eyeballing too many things that I used to weigh/measure... this week I take stock and get serious again.  I don't really mind if I don't reach my Christmas goal - but I would like to be a FREE at-goal Weight Watchers Lifetime Member once again.... and that only takes 1.8 pounds :) 

Ok, turkey is done, enjoyed myself, but am moving on.  No special events (that I can recall) coming up this week, so I have no excuses!  Back on track... here we go!

Oh, did I mention that I'm going to the UK for Christmas????  Hoping to plan a side trip to Paris for a few days too :)  I am SO excited!  In 11 weeks, I will be there!!!  Can you believe Christmas is only just over 11 weeks away?!
