Well, it's that time of year again....

... You know the time... Resolutions, a time to make changes, a purging, if you will. Out with the old and in with the new. There is a bit of that going on in our household as well. Not so much "resolutions," but definitely changes being made and, I'd like to think, some purging. BUT, there will be more on that later.

Today isn't really about "in with the new," but rather a reinstating of something old. Yep, after a six month stint on birth control (gotta love those automatic ten pounds) and the holiday EATING season, I am staring an extra 15 pounds full in the face. And belly. And hips. Oh yeah, and thighs. Sigh. Stupid scale.

Time to count points again. And this guy has the right idea. At least part of it.

Last time I was counting points, using a smaller plate was actually one of the tricks I utilized. Portion control is significantly easier if your plate doesn't look empty. Batman is forever telling me to stop feeding him so much in his lunch. It's mental. I feel like I need to fill his containers. Just like most people need to fill their plate. His solution? He got me smaller containers for Christmas. :) (Ah, but that is part of that other post...) So, today I start over. Smaller plates, check.

Points counter, check. Measuring tape, check. Handy dandy points tracker that the sil/bf sent me last time I was counting, check.

A resolution? Hmm... Perhaps I should resolve to stay off the scale until next Monday morning. So far, so good. Yes, I am fully aware that it has only been an hour. Yes, I think I can do it.

Ta ta for now. I am off to see if I've lost anything by being good for breakf...... Oh. Shoot. Avoiding the scale may be harder than I thought.

yup, I'm staring an extra...well we won't put a number on it but...there's extra weight hanging out there....
we got the Wii fit over the weekend...amazing how easy it is to get into and how much I actually enjoy it! plus it does the remembering for me and tracks what I did and glares at me when I've been bad....*sigh* we can get through this together, right?

OOH! We have the Wii, but not the Wii Fit... That is next on my list.... Maybe on my wish list for my birthday..... I've used it at a friends and loved it!

Yep, we CAN get through this together. ;) You can keep me accountable. :D

Love you! <3
