Maybe it was the picture of me and the Lorax at BlogHer and I looked as round as the Lorax, known for being round.
Maybe it was the number on the scale this morning, a heart-stopping 193 pounds. In the interest of full disclosure that's not the highest I've ever seen, but it's way, way too high for comfort. It was clear that I couldn't eat unlimited butter toffee cookies and keep a reasonable number on the scale.
Maybe it was when I put on my "go-to" navy capris the fit up and went, a clear result of too many butter cookies.
Not maybe -- it's time to move to short, cute and not so chubby! Since I first got the opportunity to blog here I've been thinking about my first post. I wasn't writing, just thinking. I knew that once I began to post here with honesty and accountability I would need to eat more healthy foods and be rigorous with portion size, all the good things I have learned in Weight Watchers.
I am going to claim back a thinner face, a lower number on the scale and my navy capri pants. In the fall I am going to wear the brand new unworn wool pants that are in the closet. I'm just going to be short and cute. It won't take a week or a month. It might take a year. But I will be eating healthy and I will be posting and I hope you here with me.
