Another Chapter..


Well, as some of you know I have been struggling with my weight for a while. All my life really but the past 2 years I have left myself at the curbside. I was on medication for 2 years and it's been 2 months that I am "drug free" and feeling better, so that means time to concentrate on WEIGHT LOSS! Can you believe that since November 2006 ... 2 1/2 years I have gained over 65 pounds! That's unreal for me.
As I look at myself in the mirror every night I really don't recognize myself. I've been a yoyo dieter for the past 2o years and this is the heaviest I have been.

I currently weight over 240 pounds ... I am 5' 4" and really feeling it lately. My back is sore, my boobs are HUGE ... none of my clothes fit me and I have no interest in going clothe shopping. It's really disgusts me that I am this way right now. I even look pregnant but I am not! So, today I made the decision to join Weight Watchers for the 3rd time. The last time i was on this program I lost the 30 pounds I wanted to lose .... and now I am gonna do it again! It certainly won't be easy for me, and I actually am looking forward to the challenge once again.

My goal is to lose 60+ and reach 180 lbs. I have big boobs so I actually am a good size 12 at 170 lbs.. hard to imagine but i am comfortable at that weight. So.... this is it!
No more drive thru lunches, no more HUGE bowls of ice cream ... and now portion control and limited JUNK foods. It won't be easy but I am positive that I CAN DO IT! .... I CAN DO IT!!!

So, I have a ticker on the side of my profile, you'll be able to see my progress.

Wish me Luck and Thanks for reading.
