Because it works!
I started back on Weight Watchers this past Monday, using their etools program as the closest meeting is 30 minutes from me.
Weight Watchers has had alot of press coverage recently after coming out top on a couple of 'weighty' surveys as the best weight loss plan out there. I also think Jennifer Hudson has been their best celebrity endorsement ever, as she seems approachable, somewhat normal and now looks amazing.
I can vouch for their claim as this won't be my first time, in the past I have not only lost 40lbs but also not been hungry, food obsessed or miserable. The truth is it just works, but the harder part is sticking to it.
But I have finally reached that critical age (45) where it has dawned on me that if I want to live a long healthy life with the Hubster and not bankrupt us with medical costs for knee replacements etc, then I need to lose the weight for good. It's kind of been an awakening and it's all about my age and seeing so many heavy older people having health issues I am headed for without an intervention now.
So actually I am quietly confident this time. I have a good life and I want to be here to enjoy it for many years to come to it's fullest.
So I am putting it out here that I am aiming for 105lbs weightloss, I have gained 35 since that picture over there with the Hubster was taken! You may still think surely she doesn't need to lose that much, well first off I am tall and the weight is spread evenly all over so I carry it. Secondly to be in healthy range I actually need to lose 85lbs but I want to be skinny slim for the first time in my life and get to wear clothes I have only ever dreamed about.
I will add a little weight loss tracker somewhere here to keep me accountable to any of you that want to comment and I may occasionally blog about major milestones. I am going to take it in 25lb segments and my first target is 30lbs by Christmas and since Monday I have lost 5lbs for a great start.
Finally if any of you are using Weight Watchers Online and would like to add me as a friend on there, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I need all the help and support I can get :-)
