Weight Watchers

       I love to eat. Who doesn't? I eat when I want to celebrate, I eat when I'm bored, and whenever else I feel the need to. For most of my life, it wasn't a big deal. I was a little stick figure girl and my weight fluctuated maybe 5-10 lbs up and down.

      See twiggy me....


                    

        All that changed after I hit age 21. Mostly, because of alcohol..... it really helped me pack on the pounds. I am now 25, almost 26 and I'm tired of feeling insecure and really having to buy clothes I don't like because I want to hide my arms and stomach.

      This photo really made me realize how big I have gotten... btw, go Bucks! And hello to J!


           During the holidays, I gained an extra 10 lbs and thought "That is IT!!!!!!!". January 1st I started Weight Watchers online and started their points plus program. It is seriously the easiest thing I have ever done! The weight is coming off slowly, I am aware of what I am eating, making healthier choices and I have way more energy!

          I still have treats.... heck, yesterday I had a burger and fries but the rest of the day I ate healthy things! I even bought Weight Watchers ice cream sandwiches. YUM!

  Today was my weigh in and this week I lost 3.4 lbs! That means I have lost 8.6 lbs total since January 1st! I am so proud. I realize I won't lose that much each week but gosh, it feels amazing!

       When I hit the 10 lbs mark, I am going to get a pedicure. 20 lb mark, mani & pedi. And my ultimate goal, 30 lbs--- SHOPPING TRIP! I would also like to add that I am not buying any new clothes til then. I know I can do this!

21.4 lbs til clothes!!!!!!!!! :)

     Here is how I want to look again. I was healthy, and 140 lbs. Rome in 2005.
