My job kept me skinny

Okay, not really skinny...but on my way to skinny.

Now that I'm working from home, I'm also working on keeping my waist line growing. Don't believe me, I have empty boxes of girl scout cookies to prove it. Problem being that I have no willpower. If it's in the house, I will eat it...and how do you say no to those adorable girl scouts peddling their legal crack outside Walmart? I could do what the woman next to me did, while holding my 3 boxes...she handed over her $3.50, proudly saying she didn't want the cookies, they could keep them for themselves.
Really lady, you weigh almost nothing, you need those cookies...just like I do!!

Oh, I got off track. Anyway...when I was working and doing WW it was easy. I didn't have a kitchen full of food calling to me in the middle of the afternoon. I could pass on expensive lunches and fast food b/c I'm cheap and instead have my 4th subway salad of the week. I was kicking ass!!!

And now...yea...my ass is just growing. And growing.

I did make it to the gym today for the first time in 6 months. I figure I'd better start using it or I'm going to have to drop it like I did WW. I just can't afford to throw money in to something I'm not using.
So, here we go again...so my son will no longer comment on my squishy belly and I can maybe actually fit in to a swimsuit that doesn't look like a tent...I'm going to attempt this whole working out and eating better thing...again.

It would be very hard to work at home and not eat everything there. I eat all the crap I keep at the office all day long but am trying to keep fruit on hand for those munchy times. Good job on going to the gym for 6 months straight. That's quite an accomplishment!! Keep it going.
