Post Olive-Garden...

Week 12 Weight: 150.5 pounds

I'm almost in the 140's again, folks. Almost.

I started this journey back in the fall of 2006. I got down to 145 in the fall of 2007 after my divorce, but then I started dating again and the weight crept up...

Then I got down to 147 in March of 2009, but then I quit smoking and the weight crept up...

Then I got down to 149.9999 in October of 2009, but the whole family caught H1N1 and then we had the holidays and the weight crept up...

And looking at all that, sure I see the reasons. I also see that I used these life events, consciously or not, as an excuse to start chowing down and to stop eating mindfully.

Hopefully, now that I realize what I did, this will be the last trip I make through the 150's, and my trip through the 140's will be completely on the downhill slope.

I will do this.

Thanks Jenn, Lesley, Laura, and Amanda!

I've just *got* to stay on track this time. Breakfast today (on a Saturday no less) is steel cut oats cooked overnight in the crockpot, so it's a good start :)
