Weight Loss and Wine

I’ve decided to combine two things, thus the post title.

Some days a glass or two of wine will make everything okay (disclaimer: alcoholism is not good and all that jazz, I agree).

I talked to my Mom, who is pretty much the best person in the world, really, and she said I should be able to lose 15 pounds between yesterday and Feb 1st. That’s THREE weeks. Averaging 5 pounds a week, it’s a lot and usually not recommended, but I think I can do it.

I feel hopeful and it’s not just the wine talking.

The things that are holding me back from MAJOR weight loss is emotional baggage I need to let go or resolve. I’ve decided to do it tonight with glass bottle of wine. My Mom is having Peter sleep upstairs with her while I wrestle with this and I’m grateful to be able to have this chance. I know Peter is safe and sometimes I can be franker (franker… is that a word?) with myself with some wine.

While I know it’s some what of the easy way out… I’m okay with it. As long as I’m facing it.

What do you need to face that you’ve been putting off? Join me on this reflective look at ourselves.

And hey, free wine. 😉

And yes.. that’s a water glass. Don’t judge me. LOL


Weight Loss

Remember that one time I posted about joining WW and being all excited.

Yeah. I lost that excitement and now I’m trying to conquer my feeling like a failure. My husband is going to looks all hot and fit and here I am 6 pounds HEAVIER than when he left. Yikes. There is so much emotional baggage behind my weight that I’m wondering if I should see someone to get past it.

How do you learn from your eating mistakes? How do you find the energy to start, One More Time?

I know I have to do it, but I don’t know if I can fail again.

What a debbie downer post.
