WW and I

As most of you know Weight Watchers and I have had a whirl wind relationship. Though its feelings towards me have never changed, always giving me constant information and support through meetings with a plan that only improves with change. However, I, I have loved and hated it both so deeply. I had great success with the diet in 2000 and when I allowed life to convince me that I did not need it I put all the weight back on. I tried time and time again to follow the plan on my own and have not had success since the first time.

People always say there is a point in your life when you know in your heart that you are ready to give in and give control up. I hit that point when I took a look at these pictures.

It was the picture of me in my green sweatshirt that sealed the deal. I re-joined WW on Monday and and not looking back!

I am on day 4 and this is usually the point I start to lose my inspiration. I feel great! I am loving the new Points Plus program and am making changes not only in my diet but in other areas of my life!

This is going to remain one of the hardest things I have ever had to do, but with the support of all of my loved ones... I am going to do this!

Here are my stats, I will include my WW weight loss along with the total loss since I started this blog.

Start Weight: 230.5
Today: 216.2 (WW first weigh in)
Total +/- since blog start: -14.3
Loss since joining WW: ...we will see next week!!

I was so pleasantly surprised when I weighed in on Monday, I had lost over a pound since last week! YAY!!

I love you all!

Here it is...

I am sending out a shout out to all of my friends out there.

I have a favor.

I can not do this on my own.

I know it.

I was wondering if I could have some of you volunteer to be my coach. You could offer me one day, a few days,... whatever. What I would ask is that I could call you in the morning of the days we work out and I go over my goals for the day. That is all. It will just be my morning reality check. I will also tell you how I did the previous days. Once we get the business out of the way we can chat! :) Just message me on facebook, call me, or reply to this post and we can get it all worked out. I thank you in advance!

Here is my week:
This week lets start with the numbers:
Start Weight: 230.5
Today: 217.5
Total +/-: -13

Down another pound! YAY!! I am so afraid I will be going the other way soon. I see myself slipping and I need help.

Sorry this is so short! I love you all!!

Easy come, easy....go?

This week lets start with the numbers:
Start Weight: 230.5
Today: 218.5
Total +/-: -12

No change. I was really thinking there would be a gain there because I had my last day at the theater last week. Wow did that throw me in for a doozy! What a sad emotional day! It was not however only my last day at the theater, but also the day Adie learned to crawl! I consider it that day a great day of firsts and lasts. It also reminded me that my little lady is now mobile and I will need to start keeping up with her, no more half assing this, I need to get it together!

I was on the phone with a lady last week and we were talking about how hard losing weight actually is. She said, "Easy come, easy go! That does not apply to weight loss!" All I could think of was how true! It seems like it is so easy to pack on the pounds because you do not think about it while it is happening. However, when you are trying to take it back off it is all you can think about!

ZUMBA tonight!! I hope anyone and everyone can be here! We have such a good time. Also- not to bring you by with food, but I have a fresh pineapple that i am going to cut for the occasion. :)

Have a great week everyone! I will post more next week!
