May Your Way Final Check-in – The Shrinking Jeans of Christy


June 1, 2011 by Christy

May wasn’t pretty for me. As a matter of fact, May felt like the NEVER ending month. Seriously. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t all bad, because I did get to spend an amazing few days with my friends at Fitbloggin’. Totally awesome. But the rest of the month was a shitstorm. My pawpaw passed away after battling leukemia for several years – he just couldn’t deal with the chemo anymore. It was a blessing that he went so quickly, and I really enjoyed the 9 days I spent with my family in Dallas. On top of all the travel, there were like a gazillion school field trips, programs, and functions. Exercise was almost non-existent, and my eating, while not all bad, was not very good.

I pretty much lived May the wrong way. And my scale is definitely reflecting that. I have seen numbers that I haven’t seen in years this week. Like numbers in the mid-140s. My jean shorts are too tight. I feel bloated. I am not really happy.

So I logged into WW online yesterday and tracked my points. This is my first time tracking since the new PointPlus plan was put in place, so there’s going to be a learning curve, but that’s okay. I need to shake things up a bit, and I am enjoying the accountability.

I’ve also noticed in my blog hopping that a lot of people are disappointed with themselves. It makes me sad to see people down on themselves. This is a new month and there is a new challenge on the horizon, starting 6/15!
