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!

wonderful detail... It can be very interesting to take a few minutes and live vicariously in someone else's world, especially if they have a creative mind.
