Hands up all of you who made a New Year’s Resolution at New Year’s? Who has managed to keep to those resolutions so far? Come on… be honest… yes, I’m talking to you… you can tell me, I promise I won’t tell anyone… we’ve been there and done that. It’s not easy sticking to those resolutions. If you’re one of those who’ve managed to keep to that New Year’s Resolution, I applaud you. It’s day 28 (here in Australia) into the New Year and if you’re sticking to that resolution, then, that is true commitment and a strong determination to keep going and not give up! Well done! Keep going and do not give up now because you can do it, no matter what 🙂
I’m one of those people who do not make New Year’s Resolutions because I’m just no good with the carry through, I simply just do not stick to them. I may be committed and all serious about them for a day or two, or a week or two if I’m lucky but after that, they’re basically forgotten about.
This year, I didn’t make a New Year’s Resolution as such. What I did do was to promise myself to lose some weight.
You see, I’ve been doing Weight Watchers for the last six years. I was losing weight too but then the old eating habits slowly crept back in because I had lost my motivation and I got lazy, so most of the weight I had lost, slowly found its way back again. Fortunately, I haven’t been back at my starting weight again but I’ve come close to it though but I haven’t gone over it. I’m certainly not intending to do that one! I may be crazy for my backward slide but I’m not that crazy!
The last two years the motivation has been MIA (Missing in Action) but at least I’ve still gone to the meetings, weighed in, made Weight Watchers richer giving them my money and in the process I’ve only been wasting my money.
Well, no more! The year 2013 is the year to get serious again! I’ve now dug out my motivation again and I’m going to use it to help me lose the weight. No more making Weight Watchers richer, no more wasting my money, I’m just going to get on with it and do it!
So far and so good!
Watch this space 🙂
Until next time
