A New Day, A New Start

"Winners never look to the past, except to learn from it. Rather, they make goals for the future and say, "Next time I will do better."
- Mary Crowley (Founder of Home Interiors & Gifts)

Yesterday was the first day of a new Weight Watchers series. It's an at work program, so it should be easier for me to fit into my crazy schedule. What's that got to do with the quote I started with? Everything!

One of my goals for this year was to finish my weight loss journey. After attending the meeting yesterday, and doing a lot of thinking last night, I'm altering that a bit.

The 30+ pounds I lost previously is a great thing. It's something to be proud of. It's something to learn from. But it's done. It's time to for a new journey.

What is my new weight loss destination? To go down 18 pounds. Ideally by the middle of May, but if it takes a little longer, it takes a little longer.

Why do I say ideally the middle of May? Tommy's AIT graduation date - May 22nd.
After 19 weeks of army training, he'll be in better shape by then, why shouldn't his mom?
