Reset is working.

So three weeks ago I hit the rest button on my weight loss journey.  I'm very happy to report that on my Saturday weigh in I was down again.  I don't know how much I was down, but I was down and that's what is important.

It's been a challenging weekend for me with food this weekend. I haven't made the best food choices but I've tracked everything I've eaten and I'm happy for it.  I may not have any weekly flex points left after today's family bbq, but I had everything in moderation and enjoyed myself. 

I think I probably over estimated my points but that's a good thing.

This is a crazy busy week for me at work as I have a packed schedule.  Tuesday will be a challenge.  I have one of those rare 12 hour days as I have a morning of meetings and then a committee meeting for my upcoming event.  It's our last meeting before the event happens so I baked a banana bread to take with me to feed everyone.  I am taking my chopped salad for lunch and dinner, cereal for Breakfast and I have a banana, orange and some prune plums for snacking on.

By the way, if you're in the Metro Vancouver, Lower Mainland area, and want to join a great fitness event for a great cause, consider joining us on September 27th at Grouse Mountain.  The website for full details is

I won't be actually doing the Grouse Grind as I'm the Special Events Officer.  I'll be the one keeping everything on track and ensuring that it all goes smoothly.  If you do happen to join us, stop at the check in tent and ask them to find me.  I'd love to say hello and thank you for coming out!

Hitting the rest button.

I came to a humbling realization two weeks ago, and with the great support of my Weight Watchers leader Mare (The best leader ever!)  I have hit the reset switch.  We reset my weight watcher information.  I hated seeing my pounds lost shrink as I've been dealing with my ankle injury and medication changes.  It was getting harder and harder to go to my meetings.  It was getting harder to face the same people week after week, knowing that I was gaining week.

I couldn't face seeing that number shrink, so we hit the reset switch.  I've reset my weigh watchers journey.  I've reset my activity.  I've hit the reset switch and I'm feeling good about it.

The first week of my reset I was down.  I don't know how much as I've asked not be given my number.  I don't want to know.  I just want to know if I am up or down.

When I'm feeling comfortable in my skin again. I may ask for the booklet I should have for recording my weight, but at this point I don't want it.

I think I've done pretty good this week as well. I'm tracking everything.  Every BLT (bite, lick and taste) get tracked before it goes in my mouth.

I'm already feeling better in my head space about my journey and I'm glad that I've hit the reset switch.   I'm even more glad for that stubborn streak I appear to have that kept me from quiting!
