I can't believe I'm about to blog about this, but I have to find some accountability somewhere. 

Last month, I joined Weight Watchers.  I have about (gulp) 30 lbs to lose.  I really like the changes that Weight Watchers has made to their plan, with the new points plus.  I needed to join a weight loss plan that would still allow me to eat dinner with my family.  I have lost every week that I have gone in to weigh myself.  But if I don't get my butt moving soon, that will stop.  I have to exercise, I know I have to exercise, but I don't.

I know I need to do this for myself. I'm tired of buying jeans that have Lycra in them. As much as I love my yoga pants, and know that no matter what I weigh, I will still wear them, I would like to wear them to actually do yoga. 

For that reason, I'm posting here my goals, my successes, my failures and anything else that I may find on this journey.  Hopefully, knowing that others will be watching and reading will help me stay accountable to myself.  My true goal is to have lost at least 15 lbs by the time my husband and I go on a cruise at the end of March for our birthdays.  (Yes, my husband and I have the same birthday, different year, but same day)

I would love to hear from anyone else who has lost weight, is in the process of bettering themselves or needs to better themselves.

  4. Hi! Thanks for following! I'm following back through GFC and Twitter.

    I did Weight Watchers for awhile and it worked to a point and then I got stuck :( I've lost the weight since then but it took lots of trial and error to figure out what worked for my body.

  6. Following you back! Glad to see you're in the same boat as me (unfortunately) with that extra 30 lbs. I joined WW online -- I lost it once before our last kidlet was born ... she'll be three in April and I'm a hot mess! Hope to share ideas with you!

  7. Hey! I stopped by from one of the hops and followed! Weight loss is sOOOO hard, I'm using sparkpeople right now because it's free.

    Seems to be working!

  10. I'm with you Michelle. You know I need to lose 30 pounds too. I want to get back on WW again and then when I'm not working two jobs add in some exercise. So I will definitely try this with you. Once again, this is the time it would be nice if we lived closer.
