Change is Coming!

Yes it is!
it is that time of year...for resolutions...promises to do better! I know cause every year like Lot's of you I say I gonna loose some weight...start working out and so on! Last year I joined the local Curves....working out 3 times a week, loosing pounds,loosing inches....doing everything right....they went OUT OF BUSINESS! I said I will work at home ....yea right!
I have gone to Weight Watchers and lost weight a couple of times before....so last week I decided to go back. I start on Tuesday.
The weighing in...the accountability works for me.
I got this stuff in the mail on Saturday so I am taking that as a sign that I am moving in the right direction.

(I saw this on someones blog and I had to steal it!)


I used to loose weight to look better...now at 43...it is about FEELING better. Loosing this weight will do wonders for my back and my blood presures been a little high lately so I need to do something!
I am gonna take this accountability thing one step further....see tomorrow when I go to weight in...you are going with me. That's right I will take a picture of me on the scale...and the big number! Every Tuesday...we will watch that number go down together. You see it doesn't matter what we have tried before....it only matter's that we are willing to try again! So can I count on you to cheer me on?
I will set my goals tomorow....this time I am gonna make it all the way to the finsh line!

  5. Good Luck! I'll cheer you on! I know what you mean, it used to be about fitting into that pair of jeans and at 50 it is about just feeling good. My husband is right there with me and that makes it so much easier, I fix a healthy breakfast and he fixes the healthy supper, he is such a good cook! Subway for lunch, the healthy ones only. five days and I already feel better...no sweets either.

  15. I'm so happy you are doing weight watchers - it's the best program out there...not dieting, just a better way of eating and it's something I should be getting back into as well.

    I've been working on losing weight since Sept. I lost 90 lbs about 10 years ago and have regained it back. But I'm happy to say that I have lost 11 lbs so far. I'm turning 50 this year and I want to be a healthier me and just feel better... ya know,so I'm not going over the hill and down it too fast. lol...
    Like I told Janene earlier today...I would love to encourage each other as we go through this weight lost journey. I wish you the best and I know that we all can do this!!

  21. I'll be sure to cheer you on. I too am doing WW - I get weighed on Saturdays. We'll lose together. Walk 30 minutes a day - it'll help. Sometimes I just walk around the house during commercials. Yea for you getting healthy.
