As of late...

Not too much has changed, but of course I haven't blogged either. I have to say its not really my forte, but I do enjoy reading other peoples ramblings of their thoughts. I seem to have lots of them but can't seem to get it "written down" so to speak. Still loving WW and working out. With the holidays the working out has been dificult, but I have managed not only to maintain the weight but to loose! WW has changed the program a little bit, I am looking foward to the New Year to really give myself a boost and get back on the straight and narrow, buckle down and maybe reach my goal in 2009.
Reflecting on the past year things couldn't have been better. I got to travel to TN to see one of my best friends get married, things with Jeff couldn't be better..I was finally taken "home" and introduced to the family and it seems as if I have been approved of. Don't get your hopes up..there are no wedding bells a ringing yet! But all is good! I am looking foward to what God has in store for me in the New Year!

Weight Watchers

I love Weight Watchers! I can't believe this was me a year ago this month! About the middle of January I had finally built up enough motivation do get rid of this extra baggage I have been carrying around for most of my life. I am not overweight for any paticular reason except for the fact that I love food! The biggest motivation for me I have to say is my boyfriend. Not so much anything he has said or done, because I know he cares about me no matter what, I was over weight when we met. He flys planes for fun and he owns a small 2 seater and we all know that you have a certain weight limit to go by when you want to fly safe, that includes the fuel that you put in the tanks. I was going over to the hanger one day because we were going to go for a ride and he was sucking gas out of the tanks so the plane wouldn't weigh so much...and you know when you see it for yourself, you know it is because of you, it was very eye opening. One of my bestie's told me about Weight Watchers and how much she liked it so I decided to give it a go. It is easy and rewarding and it is definately NOT a diet. That is a four letter word in my book! It is most definately a LIFESTYLE! I have changed my whole way of eating and looking at food. I still love it, I still crave it, and I still eat it, but it is all in moderation and portions. I have also become addicted to going to the gym. It makes me feel so much better, I have way more energy. I know I have added years to my life just by loosing the 50 lbs I have already lost. I feel like a new person. It doesn't happen overnight, and I have hit some bumps along the way...but tomorrow is a new day. I know I will reach and maintain my goal. Only 45 more lbs to go! This is me now!
