Picking up where I left off...

So here we are.  January 1st of a new year.  Most people look at this as a time for a new beginning, a fresh start if you will.

Me?  Not so much.  I see this as a time to pick up where I left off.  I was in the middle of a good head of steam.  If you recall, I had lost 44 pounds and was doing well.  I had started at 286 pounds and gotten down to my lowest that I could recall since my daughter’s birth which to put it mildly is a very long time. 

So I had gotten down to 242 pounds, The Wonder One had gotten down to his goal weight and I fizzled.  I lost my mojo. I didn’t have my diet buddy, so to speak any longer.  I felt lost and abandoned and didn’t have that competitive gusto that I once did when he was losing weight with me.  So I went off plan.  

Thankfully I didn’t put back on all the weight I’d lost, only 15 pounds.  How much of that is truly weight I’d gained due to not eating properly or the holidays is anyone’s guess.  

I’d been tossing the idea around about picking the blog back up and I mentioned it to a friend of mine and she encouraged me wholeheartedly (thank you Karla) and The Wonder One has been poking the bear so to speak about it lately…..kindly of course, but gently letting me know…”Hey, I think this is something you should get back into.”

So, here I am. I thank you my cheerleaders for patiently waiting for my return.  For those who've not waited so patiently, I do so hope, I can get you back here to cheer me back on.  For those new to the cheering section...YaY! Thank you for coming in to help cheer me on, I'll need it.  I'll be there for you as well.  This cheerleading business is a two way street yanno!

So, I'm getting back into it…whatever “it” may entail.  I’m sure I’ll be adding to the cast of characters that is my life.  Not to mention a great bunch of friends and cheerleaders.  All of whom I wouldn’t be able to do any of this without.

So, here I go, better yet, here we go.

Ready or not,

Let’s roll….


  1. HI I am on...really need to get back on track....let's do this together...Fran

  2. Yes! Honey. I'm so glad you're back. Also glad you've maintained the weight. I'm looking to lose some weight too. So, I'll definitely be cheering you on. xx

  3. Like I said we can cheer each other on, be each others cheerleaders as it were ;-)
