Hmmm... Where did we leave off? Right, I was finishing up the semester and fretting about my future.

Well, last night I took a positive step in the right direction. It had nothing to do with my career and everything to do with my health. College has definitely taken its toll on my body. I treated myself like garbage for the last 3 years and have no one to blame but myself. I managed to get down to a healthy weight for about 6 months  (starting 1 month before I met Chris) and then I managed to let it all do to waist (I know, waste. I was trying to be punny). That was 2 1/2 years ago and I need to do it again.

I'm getting older; I'm not creaking yet, but my body doesn't bounce back the way it used to. It also doesn't like carrying around an extra 30 pounds. Shame on me (but I graduated with a 3.5!!!!). I was talking to a work bud yesterday and she suggested Weight Watchers. She's been doing the program for a few months now, and I can even see the results. I was hesitant about it, but last night I decided, "Why not? What have I got to lose? Right, weight. Do it, Jonesy."

My willpower only goes so far, thank goodness I ate the rest of the Ben & Jerry's on Monday night. I know I can do this. I'm only juggling work and pets now, not school, work, and pets.

(Dear Publix,
      Please don't have a sale on Ben & Jerry's or Talenti for a long time.

Is anyone else on a plan?



  1. good for you!!!
    I started watching my calories in March and in April started using the My fitness pal app to help me. I've lost 10 pounds since March. It is so hard to break habits and not give into the ice-cream! But this is the first time in the last 3 years of trying that something has worked. YEAH! I still have about 20-30 to loose. yuck!!!
    I'll be here cheering you on!

  2. Good luck girl!!! I've always wanted to try WW but feared it would cost more money than I could afford...lots and lots of luck and will power to you! I'm a sucker for sweets!
