Weight Watchers

So this week I started Weight Watchers (WW), joining two friends who have a week on me. When I first stepped on the scale, I wanted to cry, and ask if I could trade their scale for the one I have at home. At least that one makes me 10 pounds lighter! Ugh, the evils of scales.

Anyway, I have the full support of my husband, and I have two great friends to help coach me through it. It's really nice, when I don't have the energy I used to, for Doane to say "What can I make you?" or "What recipes would be good for the family, so we can all eat together?" Such a blessing. And one of my friends doing WW with me calls every other day or so, to see how I'm doing. Blah, blah, blah, is pretty much my response right now.

So, for all the world, and especially those blog lurkers out there, I'm posting a picture of me taken right after I had Dean, and I was pretty close to the weight I am right now (maybe slightly less then - SLIGHTLY). This gathering we were at was where I first met my friend, who is joining me in WW now. It's kinda crazy. We both desire to lose weight and be healthier, but MAN I have a long way to go!

Anyone up for some fat-free icecream with me? :)

Hang in there Beka. It is hard to lose weight and fiber becomes one of your new best friends so that you can at least feel full! Good luck.

I have done ww numberous times!! I actually have be trying to start for the past umteen mondays, but today I definately started again. If you need to talk or want some recipes I have some good ones. Hang in there, the first week or two are killers and then it isn't so bad, you get used to eating right and smaller portions!
