Sandie Simply Says

September 7, 2009

My clothes don’t fit anymore, it must be time for HASAY!

Filed under: General — by Sandie @ 2:46 am

It hardly seem like a month since I last update. But Casey says it’s been a month and she wouldn’t lie. Would she?

I wish I had some success to report. I haven’t been on a scale since we left Georgia and that wasn’t pretty. I weighed a mere 4 pounds away from the weight that drove me to Weight Watchers in the first place. Since my clothes have only gotten tighter since then, I imagine I’ve closed the gap a bit (either that or all my clothes shrank on the plane ride over…hmmm, I think I like that explanation better).

I could make up a bunch of excuses. We’ve been moving. The food is too good here (well, that one is true, but we’ve only eaten off base three times since we’ve been here and three times in two weeks doesn’t equal a weight gain). We’ve had too much to do, so there’s no time to cook. But the truth is I’ve just been too lazy and apathetic. I don’t feel like eating right. I don’t feel like exercising. So I don’t.

That has to change. Today. I fitness test in November. November. As in less than two months away. I haven’t failed a fitness test yet and now is not the time to start.

*I NEED to lose these extra pounds I’ve put on since March.

*I NEED to start running again.

*I NEED to work on my push up and sit ups again.

*And this year, I NEED to keep it up after I test (they’re changing our fitness standards next year and will make it about 50 times harder for me to pass).

I’ve already taken the first step. I started counting Points again yesterday. Now I just need to keep it up!



  1. You can keep it up! You can do anything you put your mind to and having Casey cracking the whip every month (so to speak anyway, at least I don’t think she actually has a whip…) can help.

    I recently moved too and have caved into all the foods I’ve been missing for the last 3 1/2 years. Time to rev back into a decent eating pattern and start exercising.

    Keep at it!

    Your fellow Hasay Groupie.

  2. It’s a well-known fact that clothes often shrink on transatlantic flights.

  3. You can do it!! You know you’re capable, it’s just a matter of getting off your rump and doing. But just thinking about all that yummy Italian food. Mmmmm. 😉

  4. I’m new here – fitness test? That you HAVE to pass? Some kind of army/law enforcement I assume?

    And, I’m pretty sure high altitudes shrink clothes.

  5. I find that moving country does take a bit of practice when it comes to weight loss. I think if we just treat everyday like everyday it works. ww and I are having weekend woos.

  6. Fine, I’ll get out my whip if I need it to get you back in shape. Believe me, I didn’t have a move looming over my head and I was packing on the pounds so I know how hard it must be for you to stick with the plan. But… you’re almost settled there (right?), the girls are in school and now it’s time to hit the pavement/gym/whatever and get with the program. My lecture for the day is complete, make me proud!

  7. WW is my savior. Good luck! You can do it!

  8. Hooray for you! I like the idea of a fitness test. Maybe I will pretend I have to take one too. What are the standards?

    I’m very jealous of your getting to be in Italy. Such a great country. Enjoyed your other blog very much. I’ll be back to check on how you’re doing next month. Good luck meanwhile!
