Honesty is the Best Policy

Well, my friend told me I should post again, as much as I was dreading it, so here goes! I came back from Florida last week and after a week and a half of eating junk food, I found quite a few new pounds when I stepped on the scale. Sigh. I can't say I was surprised, but I'm not going to say it wasn't depressing either. I went to WW on Thursday, saying I wasn't going to weigh in because I was up so much. I just hate seeing the number that high, over and over. I feel like I've been losing and gaining the same 10 pounds for a year. :-( Anyway, my ww friend suggested that I just ask them if I can start from scratch, get a new "start" weight, and a new wi book, so I decided that is what I was going to do. I weighed in at....(gulp)....(don't want to even tell you)....(please don't hate me)...208.8. YUCK! I just want to get out of the 200's once and for all, and all I do is keep going up! I am hoping now that all my vacations, holidays, and birthdays in the family are over for awhile, I can get back on track. One of my friends that I went to Florida with, and I have been doing Jillian Michael's workout dvd's over Skype each night for the past 3 days. It has been great in so many ways! One, it is motivation to do it because I know that she is waiting for me over at her computer! Another thing is, I miss her so much after spending 8 days with her, so I get to see her and catch up! :-) Love ya Deb! :-)
So, I know my blog is called "40 pounds by 27", but I stink, so I'm not going to be losing 33 pounds by April 10th, I'm sure, so my new goal is to be 175 by August 21st, which is my son's 2nd birthday. We would like at least one more baby, and probably would be thinking about another pregnancy this fall/winter, so I would like to get to goal, and enjoy it a few months before getting fat again! I really do need all the help I can get, as I will try to post much more on here. Please, tell your ww friends about my blog, and have them encourage me too! I am so tired of feeling/looking like I do, and I need to change it! Thank you for those who do means so much to me!


  1. I have been struggling to get to "Onederland" FOREVER. I gained some weight over the past couple of months too. We can do this though!!
