Here We Go

I am on the endless journey that is weight loss. I have tried every diet fad known to man. I finally found something I think I can stick with- Weight Watchers. I joined the WW at work program last summer and lost almost 20 pounds in ten weeks- going from 196 to 178. I had almost reached my 10% goal-set by WW- when I slipped off the program and gained 6 pounds back through the holidays. 

I had a major breakdown at my Mom's home over Christmas and I knew that this was the point I would come to in every diet- where I would throw in the towel and say F8%ck it! I'm just going to be fat forever. But I really didn't want to do it this time.  I had only gained 6 pounds- so I was still 12 pounds lighter. And 12 pounds is a lot

So I started back up again, full speed ahead. Back to a new year and a new set of goals.  One being that I would lose 54 pounds by my 30th b-day. That would be 130 lbs by October 14.  Yes, I know this is ambitious and I know this a lot of weight. But you know, even If I got down to 150 I would still be so happy.

Getting back on the WW wagon was difficult. I know I am addicted to food. But I think starting this blog may keep me honest, even if I'm the only one who reads it!

Since Jan 1rst I have lost 11 pounds. So, that means I have 43 pounds to go and 8 months to get there. So here we go.

  1. You can do it! 48 pounds is ambitious but with hard work anything can be done. It won't be easy (and it probably won't be fun) but on your 30th birthday you will be so happy. Weight Watchers is a great diet too. Good luck!
