Sassle in Canada!

There's something about coming back to Sassle that always make me feel at home.  Speaking of home, the reason I've been off the blogsphere world is that hubby & I packed our things and moved to Canada.  It's been a wild, crazy and fun journey.  I got to meet my nephew, see most of my family and the odd friend.  We  are renting a nice home and trying to acclimate to our new lives.  We live in the province of Quebec which means it's French which poses no problems for me whatsoever, my husband on the other hand does not speak the language.  Since we got here, he has learned polite phrases, we have found an AA home group and I started a new job and quit it within the month (long story) oh and I gained 5 pounds.

So all in all since I first started this journey with you in January I believe my 30 to 35 lb loss is now a 15 lb loss (insert sad face).

But yesterday I went to the store and stocked up on my South Beach Diet foods and today is day 1.  I'd write how much I way but hubby is beside me and well that's the kind of information one keeps from one's hubby, at least till I've down 50 more pounds lol.

The latest 5lb gain I believe stems from my old new job, I worked 12 to 13 hour days without a break so what I did was eat at my desk and they had a wonderful vending machine with cookies, pop and chocolate bars.  So I ate my emotions and found the weight fast.

When we first moved here in April I have gained 15 pounds (Oh my God) and my stomach is bloated and huge.  It's hard, I have a headache right now as I type this but I want to lose weight.  I keep telling hubby at least we're trying and only quitters don't try.  I always want to go back to the Weight Watchers route, you know where I can eat what I want while counting my points, that worked for me in the past, yet for some reason South Beach is what motivates me.  Why fight it, the eating plan is delicious, I always lose weight so I might as well just accept it and go with the flow.

Now what am I going to do different this time?  Not much, it works if you work it, though I am going to incorporate walks in my day and maybe throw in Lesley Sansone's Walk away the pounds and Strength Training for Dummies.  I need a schedule or else I get overwhelmed.

Thanks for stopping by!
