About two months ago, I started Weight Watchers. I was to the point where I wanted to do several things: feel better, get pressure off my joints, and have my clothing fit better. I was almost a size 30/32, and a size 28 on bottom. I had topped out at my highest weight ever- 338 pounds. The first week on Weight Watchers, I lost 7 pounds. I quit drinking regular sodas and started drinking water and one diet soda a day. I have just finished my second month in Weight Watchers and I have lost 28 pounds! I have just done this by eiting my food, and eating snacks during the day with healthier meal options. Given all my health problems, I don't exercise a lot. I am going to try to change that. I found out last week that if my doctor writes me a "prescription" that I can use my flex card at the gym for the payments. As soon as I get all my gear together, I intend to start at Bradley Wellness Center here in Dalton. They have a pool, steam room, workout area, classes, and indoor walking area. I get a discount from work. My first goal was 25 pounds, which I met, and my next goal is 40 (total) pounds. My long-term goal is to be either a size 18 or 16, depending on how I feel once I make it to an 18, which I fully intend to do. I have not been a size 18 since Junior High! Anyway, I just want to say that if I can do this, then anyone can! I don't mind being plus sized. The only thing that really bothered me a lot was my chin(s). I don't dislike myself, but I really want to feel better. I already do. And admittedly, I want to look like a curvy goddess. :) Wish me luck!!!
This was before I started the diet. Look at that chin! lol
