was down .8 this week, but while that’s good, considering I didn’t track anything last week, that’s not what’s on my mind right now. My husband asked me an insightful question. He knows I’m not where I want to be and this weekend I was very down on myself. This was the year I was supposed to make goal (on Weight Watchers and a couple of other things in my life) and at the end of October, I don’t feel any closer.

He asked me where I was a year ago. I love that WW now puts the weight on our page automatically so I don’t have to remember to do it. I looked up where I was at the weigh in at this time last year and I was .2 pounds heavier. It’s not a lot but it’s something, darn it!!

I started watching Biggest Loser again. I watch it on Hulu.com as we don’t have cable and I’m behind everyone else. However, watching those people always motivates me.

I stopped going to the gym when my sciatica started acting up and I can’t run or do any jumping stuff so the classes I liked to go go are out. I started using my Wii for exercise, but lately all I do is Walk it Out, which, while it’s a good “game” and I love it, I know it’s not challenging me. I don’t even get too tired doing it anymore. So, I asked my loving, supportive husband if he’d go to the gym with me tomorrow night to make sure I do something. He said he’d watch our son and let me go so we didn’t have to send him to the grandparents. Also, it’ll give my husband a chance to do some writing.

I even put this on the calender. I’m going to do it!

There are 8 weeks left in 2011. I can’t get to goal (unless some miracle occurs and I lose more than I generally do every week), but I can get closer. If I lose a pound a week, I would be closer than I’ve ever been!!!

I’m going to try. I feel so psyched about this. I just hope this feeling lasts!
