The Creep

Beginning To Look A Lot Like ChristmasIs everyone else as busy as I have been lately? I’m sure you are. The weeks are ticking by so quickly I can hardly keep up. We are less than a week from Christmas and less than two weeks from the end of the year! I only realized today just how long it has been since I checked in with all of you. I have to be honest and tell you that not checking in with my accountability partners has NOT been good for me.
Three weeks ago I was so proud to report that I had FINALLY dropped below 200 lbs. but I have spent the last three weeks gradually “creeping” back up and with a 3.8 lb. gain this week I jumped back up over the 200 mark. It did not come as a complete shock as I had been weighing myself all week and I was pretty sure today’s weigh-in wasn’t going to go well. I have really been struggling the last few weeks with BLT’s (bites, licks, and tastes) though I have no idea why. Today was the reality check I needed to get me back on track. I left my meeting (which was great) feeling very encouraged and ready to be successful this week.

Weight 12.19.14
As I drove home from the meeting and replayed the last few weeks in my head I had to ask myself, “Do you want this bad enough to do whatever you have to do to succeed?” When I thought of it in those terms there was no doubt in my mind that the only answer to that question is “YES!” I know how to follow the Weight Watchers plan and be successful so I need to get busy doing it!
A few weeks ago we were asked at our meeting to make a list of the reasons we want to lose weight. I made my list but have not looked at it since I wrote it down. I pulled the list out when I got home this morning to remind myself of why I want to accomplish this goal and then said to myself, “You better get serious with your efforts if you are really committed to this list!”
It’s a brand new week and I am feeling empowered and determined. What better gift could I give myself for Christmas than good health? This time of year can be incredibly difficult for so many reasons; from tempting foods to strong emotions (some good and some bad), it’s very easy to turn to food for comfort. May we all continue to remind ourselves that our good health will feel far better than the fleeting satisfaction of enjoying an indulgent treat. Have a great weekend!

The Better Your Now


  1. Hang tough, Kassie. You have rededicated yourself just in time for the peak of the indulgence season. With you refreshed spirit, and your list of reasons to lose weight, you’ll be successful. I may make a list lime that and keep a copy in wallet. It might be good to pull it out and peek from time to time these next few weeks
