Well I finally came out of the dark and did it....

I got on the scale which needed a new battery. I gained 9 lbs over the holiday season. I know I totally put all eating aside and did not even think about it but sheesh.
So now I am back to behaving my self. Any one else want to make a confession?

  • Well, I went to my first Weight Watcher's meeting yesterday! I am so proud of myself! Holiday weight is nothing to feel ashamed of. Just get out there and make a fresh start. Get rid of all the cookies and stuff lying around. Stock up on healthy food!

  • Hahahah...Our scale needed batteries too, which we just replaced yesterday afternoon. I got on the scale and I was like "AHHHHH" It has said that I gained close to 8lbs. Weird. This morning I got on the scale after using the bathroom, before I ate and naked....I had lost the 8lbs and was exactly where I used to be. It's amazing what having food in your belly and the amount of water you drink can affect your weight. Make sure you weigh yourself first thing in the morning and after using the potty. It makes a huge difference!

  • My confession? I'm hella fatter than I was this time last year. And that sucks. No one to blame but myself and a fondness for comfort food....gonna have to nip that fondness right in the bud o.O

  • I haven't weighed myself, but I am sure I gained over the holiday.

  • I've been slacking and I ate too much junk during the holidays. I don't eat it if it isn't around so I don't keep it around
