New Years Resolutions?

Are you making any resolutions this year? If so, do you make them public or keep them to yourself? I think that's a hard part of it...cause you know, if you fail and no one but you knows about it really failing? ;-)

Mine is to get healthy. The last three years have been hard on the old body with a years plus worth of fertility treatments and 2 babies in 2 years. I have always been heavier than my friends too and sometimes I think I let that be an excuse because, you know...I will never look like that!

About 6 years ago, I lost weight on Weight Watchers and that was probably the best I looked in a long time. I was SO focused. I wonder if I could get back to that determination or not?? These days my daily goal sometimes is to just make it through the day! ;-) BUT, I do remember how good it felt to be successful and that part of it has been thinking about giving it a real try again, not some half a$$, who really cares try. I think the hardest part is finding the time and getting started. I know, that is every overweight person's excuse...but as a working mom, the last thing I want to do is go work out and spend more time away from my boys. I need to get to that point where it is a habit and I actually want to work out.

My goal timing would be good though....6 months to summer...10 year WT Beach Bash trip, Matt and I's 6 year anniversary/belated 5 year trip. Ugh. I just hate getting started and being accountable and people watching what you eat and judging cause they know you are "trying to lose weight". I am one of those people who will cheat every once in awhile if I want to be able to keep it going!

So, don't hold me to it but I will try to do that myself, and hopefully in 6 months we will have a lighter and healthier Lisa! We shall see!


  1. I'm with you. I'm using WTBB as my motivation, but it's always a difficult thing to get in shape. Hang in there and we can motivate each other. I'm going to WW. Three kids in 5 years isn't easy on the body either. Number 3 sucked the skinny (whatever there was) out of me.

  2. I think thats great! I totally understand - i've been there too. Praying I can keep to my current eating/workint out after Baby G is here. As for finding time for workouts - I go to Curves - although its usually old ladies, it is really nice to be able to get in a workout in 30 minutes. And it usually only costs about $30/month. I like it because it was the easiest way to get back in the workout game. Good luck! And I won't judge you - everyone should be able to cheat at times, otherwise, it is never sustainable!

  3. I'm an awful commenter as of late but still a faithful reader. You just inspired a post on my blog, check it out, you have become my new accountability partner!!
