And it begins...

Good morning everyone! I wanted to thank Sheryl and Trixie, my new friends, for inspiring me to get off my ass and do something about my weight. 

So last night, I began Weight Watchers! I was a member many moons ago and it was nothing like it is now. Back when I was a member you went to the meetings, weighed in, and chatted a little about what everyone was doing to help lose weight. Boy was I shocked! I registered online and purchased the monthly pass, which includes your eTools. I LOVE IT!!!!! I started tracking my food intake for yesterday, and realized how bad my eating habits are. Things that I think are within normal limits left me way above my daily points and dipped into my weekly points. Now, normally I would be upset with myself for being an "undisciplined" muncher. But I thought, this is my first day. And I got my NYS Insurance Agent License, so I celebrated with some hot spiced apple cider. I know now that I need to keep those to a minimum (4 points apiece). So today, I am going to indulge in "conscientious" eating. I will tell you all about it later. 


  1. Good luck on your new blog! I've appreciated the inspiration I've gotten reading other women's journeys in the battle of the bulge - I also have the continuous battle of being over weight, with nothing ever fitting just right. Thank you for putting ourself out there :)

  2. Thank you Nicole! I was truly inspired after meeting up with my new WW friends. I saw that they could do it and I figured so can I. The only thing keeping me from losing the weight was lack of motivation. Seeing them and how wonderful they look and knowing they came from the same place I am right now made my mind up for me. Good luck with your "battle".
