I am home from my cruise and I am feeling pretty exhausted. The trip was lovely although quite chilly. I think I gained about 5lbs. I didn't really weigh myself before I left but I am sitting at about 185lbs. That sucks.

It is the same cycle, I get down to 173 then gain it all back. I don't know why I keep doing this. I am trying to figure out where to go from here. I need to lose 15ish pounds by June. I know you are thinking bad idea setting a limit but the truth is I need to fit into a maid of honor dress in June and I need to be at about 170lbs to make it work.

So what do I do? Weight watchers? Count calories? Join a gym? I am just not sure which direction to go. My instinct is weight watchers but I don't think I can afford it. I could do it at home or I could try something new and count calories. Or maybe just write down what I eat.

I have a tough couple of days ahead of me but by Monday I will have a new plan. I am starting by cleaning up my house and I am going to record what I eat the next few days.

Thank you for sticking with me, I really appreciate every comment and just knowing that someone is still believing in me.

Glad you enjoyed your cruise but now it is time to get to work. My suggestion is to join Weight Watchers. I believe they are having a special tight now. In my opinion it is the healthiest eating plan and if you follow it and do some REAL exercise you can fit into that dress by June. But don't wait till Monday - that was my usual tactic, but by Monday you will have to motivate yourself all over again. Do it TOMORROW. The longer you deliberate the longer it will take to lose those 15ish pounds. Good luck!

Have you checked out yet? It's free, and I've been using it for the last year, after I decided not to pay for WW anymore.

And no, I'm not a spammer, nor do I work for them, lol. :)
