Thankful for New Starts! | The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


Ok, so I know Thanksgiving was actually yesterday, but I’m extra thankful for something today — a new start!!

Here we are on the Friday side of Thanksgiving.  I know for most of us that we’re still kind of at the beginning of a long weekend, but the Thanksgiving holiDAY is actually over and done.  It’s time to dust ourselves off, wake up from the food coma , and get ourselves back on track!

As I’m sure some of you may remember from my recent Struggling Edition of True Confessions, I’ve been off track for a while.  I finally decided this week that enough is enough!  I headed back to a Weight Watchers meeting on Wednesday night and faced the ugly music on the scale.

Since I have been on such a weight loss slump, I told my leader that I just wanted a fresh start.  I didn’t want to be riddled with guilt over the regained pounds staring back at me when I logged into eTools or looked at my weight record booklet.  She completely understood and hooked me right up!  She reset my weight in the WW computer system and gave me a new crisp and pristine weight record booklet.  It’s like I’m at Day 1 of Weight Watchers all over again which is exactly what I needed mentally right now!  I even read through my getting started materials again.   I’m ready to get back on the proverbial wagon and start working a plan again.

So, who’s with me?  Did you let the Thanksgiving holiday derail your healthy habits?  There’s no time like today to make a fresh start!  Perhaps you don’t need a complete fresh start, but just let yourself indulge a bit over Thanksgiving yesterday.  Well, don’t let the day turn into the long weekend!  Get yourself back on track right now.  If you need some exercise motivation, be sure to check out our 10k-a-Day challenge that just started.  There’s still plenty of time to sign up and join us.  It’s a great way to help make sure to fit in plenty of activity over the next five weeks of the holiday insanity season.
