My Journey With Weight Watchers

On January 2, 2011, myself, along with probably several million people, decided to do something about my weight and join Weight Watchers.

I know, you are probably saying it was a New Year's Resolution, but honestly, I tried very hard not to use those words, but rather convince myself that this is changing bad habits into good habits.  And besides, has anyone seen Jennifer Hudson?  I mean, OM Gosh, she is stunning.  She is as beautiful on the outside as she is on the inside.  Eat your heart out Simon Cowell!

By now, I would have expected to have dropped 20 plus pounds, but the new Points Plus program is a slow and steady approach to weight loss.  Yes, I am the scrappy little turtle who goes to meeting every single week.  I'm down 5% of my body weight so far.  A great accomplishment, yes it is!

On my journey, I will post some funny stories, embarrassing moments (really?  did I just say that) and posting pics along with way.

I have a few pieces of clothing in my closet that will be photo worthy.  Like my size 16 Gap jeans and the little Jones of New York summer dress, straight fitting, that will definitely make the blog.  Just letting you know that I may not be able to breathe nor sit down in these clothes, but you can be pretty sure I'll share!

Along my journey, my lovely daughter is joining me.  This makes me happy because it is always better with more bodies.  My friend, Lynn, is on the program too, and much farther along.  Overall, I plan on being a success story.

Thanks Jennifer for the inspiration and of course, thanks to my leader, Sissy.

I did it many years ago on the old basic plan no substitutions, no point counting .. just plain weighing and logging what you ate .. took me 25 weeks to lose 25 lbs and I've never put them back on.. slow is the way to go .. go you!!!!
