The Party's Over

Returning from vacation is never easy. But, as a Retro WW gal, I can tell you--it's pretty close to torture.

For seven glorious days... I ate no knox gelatin. No tuna. No bean sprouts. And I drank alcohol. A lot.

But now I am once again faced with the dreadfully horrible task of jumping back on the Retro WW Wagon.

I'm not gonna lie. There were many times today when I asked myself: Can I do it? Can I return to the exciting life of a celery slingin', jello moldin', cottage cheesin', tuna eatin' Retro WW lady??? Can I???

The answer was simple. All I had to do was look in my September 1970 issue of Weight Watchers Magazine. On the first page was Jean Nidetch - all white pant-suited up and emanating an ethereal glow while beckoning me with the following ad:

And just like that, I'm back in the saddle.

So give me a few more days to adjust, hit the grocery store, and I promise I'll be back to my old tricks again. And I haven't forgotten about that can of mackerel sitting in my pantry...

In the meantime, please stop over and check out my recent guest post on the super fantastic Carla's blog - MizFitOnline. I was honored to contribute a post about retro fitness where I discuss the importance of leg warmers, leotards and satin gym shorts. Be sure to leave a comment and share your Retro Fitness Secret!

I'm sure you can get back onto the saddle. You have done it before, you can do it again.

I feel your pain girlfriend as I just got back from a week of that same lifestyle myself. You can do it - and so can I!
