It's a New Day...

That's the new Weight Watcher's Points Plus Plan slogan. It hangs on the wall in a couple of differn't places at my meeting. This morning I noticed it again and i took a deep breath and said to myself, 'yes, it is." And I was relieved. I had been looking forward to my weekly meeting because it marks the end of the old week and the beginning of the new. So when I looked up and saw the poster this morning I agreed in my heart that it is, indeed, a New Day.

It's been 7 months since I have blogged. It's been about the same length of time that I have been screwing around...on plan one day and off the next. I haven't stayed consistently on plan since Thanksgiving. Fortunately, I have been on plan enough and my habits have changed enough that I haven't really gained weight. I'm up about 2 pounds in 7 that's not awful.

But this morning as I was driving to my meeting I realized that I miss the anticipation I used to have before my weigh in. I miss being excited that I've been on plan and the numbers are dropping.I realized I have awakened too many mornings feeing sluggish and ashamed because I ate to much the night before. Yes, as I was driving to my meetings this morning I realized that I miss truly being on Weight Watchers. I walked into that meeting ready to get serious again, ready to stop making excuses for going off plan....ready to start fresh. is indeed a new day!

Somewhere in my thinking and driving I also realized that I need this blog. I need the accountability (even if only to myself) of blogging my journey.

So here I at my blog to step in to that new day.
