It's finally going to happen...
Not wanting to give away my face, here is a picture of me in Mexico, parasailing and praying that the parachute will hold me up. Not because I'm afraid of heights (although I am), but also because I'm afraid my weight will pull me down into the ocean, or a building and I will die. In all my glorious fatness.
The preface leads me into my announcement. I HAVE JOINED WEIGHT WATCHERS!
Of course, I was an idiot and joined the day before our crazy weekend trip to SIL's wedding celebration. However, and although ALL my flex points for the week are now used up, I am NOT giving up. I've had this extra 40 pounds for a while now, and I want to do something about it. I'm ready for my beautiful body back, I want to be able to ride bikes, hike, wrestle, and run with my kids, and I want to feel like I can accomplish something I'm ashamed to admit I have a problem with --A.K.A. Eating bad foods and eating too many bad foods.
I've been exercising every morning. My friend and I go walking at 6AM for an hour. Good walking, too. We add weights occasionally. So, she and I, in support of each other, went and joined WW together.
YAY! I'm excited. And I'll try to update you with photos, maybe, and also with my experiences and struggles to teach my soul what my body already knows --I WANT TO BE HEALTHY!!!
