The last few weeks have been pretty hectic at home, and I’ve fallen off my weight-loss horse. I didn’t stop exercising, but I did stop eating as well as I should have. The (basically) all-chicken diet just wasn’t working for me. So, this weekend, my wife and I resubscribed to Weight Watchers.

I like WW because it’s a no pretense, eat what you want kind of ‘diet’. They call it a healthy lifestyle alteration, because it’s not trying to stop you from eating things, or keep you on some sort of nutrient deficiency. They just make you aware of what you eat, and help you find healthier choices. I also like it because I know it works for me.

Now, comes the hard part. Settling in to try and lose the weight I put on in the last few weeks and to keep that momentum going.

Weight Loss Is Such a Pain

Weight loss is hard.

Not that it shouldn’t be. When you gain weight, you put it on knowing full-well what you’re getting yourself into. This is especially true when you aren’t doing anything to fix it in the mean-time.

Erin and I have a New Years Resolution to loose weight, or suffer the consequences. I did well for the first few months, loosing 20 pounds quickly and without much perceived effort on my behalf. That was my undoing.

Second quarterly weigh-in and I lost playing games. I missed the mark by6 pounds. The problem compounds itself as I fail to loose enough weight to gain it back.
