This will be

the year for me, it has to be.

I'm disapointed I can't start until the 16th but it is what it is and I just have to deal with it.

monthly pass update

I have been told that the 15 day in advance thing just happens the one time, then it is the same day each month.

I have to make it be in different pay periods so I will start the 16th I guess. :-(

5 plus board has gone downhill

Now I love(d) the five + boards, hence why my blog is linked in the blog group. But I almost posted this tonight...

I am fed up of people who think this board is for a blow by blow account of their lives. Every little event, detail problem, break up,make up all day long. I actually feel a little sorry for these people but please, find a real life support network. Text each other rather than clogging up the boards.

Do I have a problem with people sharing their problems, forming a community, looking for support both with weight loss and off topic? No. But some people need to realise it is not their personal sounding board day in day out. It's draining.

I had to write it I chose here.

ok, so I was looking at getting the monthly pass, when I relaised that it says on the WW USA site...

PLEASE NOTE: Your Monthly Pass will automatically renew each month until you cancel. You will be charged up to 15 days prior to your renewal date at the standard monthly fee (currently $39.95, plus tax for Connecticut) to ensure you receive your new Monthly Pass card on time.

So I am reading it, this means that I will pay twice within one month. I'm not sure I can do that! That's $80 in one month.

What to do. Hmm. I could start a little later than planned, so the next payment will be from the next paycheck if you see what I mean.

Hmmph. Not happy.

no more

of these double chins.

I have to say I am saddened by the death of Brittany Murphy.

I know people die all the time, famous or not and I am certainly not about to 'hype it up' or anything like that.

I initially could not understand why a seemingly healthy 32 year old would die from expected cardiac arrest. I immediately felt guilty for not looking after my own body better. Life is fragile and I have been given a healthy body that I am putting to much strain on by being overweight.

I liked Brittany Murphy as in actress, initially in Clueless which I saw at about age 15.

I don't know if there were other factors involved as the rumors begin to circulate, apprently she had flu like symptoms and had been vomiting. Who knows. Either way it serves as a reminder that life is fragile and we must look after ourselves.

Christmas is coming...

And Kit is still fat.

Why do special events make being overweight so much worse. I feel I have literally got absolutely nowhere this year.

I'm tired of saying next year will be different. It has to be. It must be. I can't stand it anymore.


off the rails to be honest.

decisions decisions

ok blog readers. I have some thoughts to share with you.

Really feel like giving up for Christmas, and just enjoying the season and the red cups (man I'm mad at the inventor of starbucks) and all that goes with it.

I will be weighing tomorrow and taking it from there. I am not sure what to do. I feel like everything is a whirl wind.

I know I haven't done too badly this week but have I tracked everything? NO?! It is like non stop from A to B in my life but I guess I have no excuses. Could have done better.

I am also decided that I think attending a meeting here may be a very good idea. There is one 5 minutes from my house and the offical Charlotte Weight Watchers center (no I am not kidding) at 10am on a Saturday which would be perfect.

I feel like I need a kick up the backside and I am realising the only time I have REALLY done this well is when I attended meetings back in 2002.

Plus the US version of weight watchers is a little different, it counts calories, calories from fat and dietry fiber which is interesting. I already have the calculator and maybe, as Bryher said, I would be less complacent about it all if I didn't know the program so well.

I plan to begin attending meetings Saturday Jan 2nd. The monthly pass includes free etools and is $40 per month - or 25 pounds a week.. Not sure how that relates to the UK monthly pass?

The biggest question is how to handle everything in the mean time...
