Back & Better Then Ever

Hello there readers, I just lost my whole article I just wrote, wow how frustrating. The last time I looked at a calender it was December 7th and now here it is December 31 and we are about to enter a new year just tomorrow. For most of you, you know where I have been. For those who are new or don't remember. I'm a hotel manager and I'm second in command. We recently lost our Food & Beverage Manager prior to the holiday parties rolling out. Well there I was left with a F&B Team and me to be the leader. We got through all the parties without to much bruising. I have to say under the circumstances we were given, it was a great sucess. There were weeks I was putting in over 70 hours. That really showed up to the dedication of my program when I jumped on the scale on 12/24 and I had gained 3.6lbs. Boy had I hit a sad moment during MY JOURNEY. I got back to it, and really realized I need to get back on track and get back to work. I did and was heavily rewarded this week with a 6.8 lb loss. I am starting to think that I might have been retaining water at last WI since I lost so much this week. That is like a Biggest Loser loss. Anyways things are great here.

I really think 2009 is starting off on a GREAT foot. As I'm entering 2009 49.4 lbs lighter. I really think this is going to be the year I recieve my promotion with my current company I'm with. I also am heading to Dallas on Jan 27-29 for some Revenue Management training from Hilton. I am then flying down to San Antonio on the 29th- Feb 1 to visit some friends and old colleagues. I think it is going to be a GREAT time. I have a lot of things to catch up on while I'm down there. "I'm coming home"---I use to live in San Antonio for 2 years back in 2005-2007 and really feel that is my home away from home. It is great I can get back, especially in this business.

I sit here and am raising my glass to all "YOU LOSERS" and say "CHEERS TO A GREAT LOSING 2009"

"Let's eat and be healthy"

Hey Nathan! Sorry it's been so long since I've stopped by. It's been busy and with Christmas and all, blogging has taken a hit. Actually so did my WW journey but I got back on track new years day and I'm feeling better already!

I encouraged my Dad to join WW over Christmas time and I thought of you because I think he's a similar starting weight to what you were. I want him to read your story and see how far you've come because I know it will be a great encouragement to him!

Keep up the great work!!! Happy New Year!

oops - that was actually Havalah (not Susie). I didn't realize my sister was signed in on the computer.

I also wanted to ask if it's too late to join your journey? I need some more accountability than I give myself and would love to be part of a group. Let me know!
