The Goal: 37 pounds
If you look at me (the second from the left) and DH (1st on the Left) taken about 6 months after we married, you will notice a few things. First, we are smiling. Oh, how sweet! Then second, you will notice that my brother was leaving on his mission for New Zealand. Oh, how sweet! Then you see how incredibly THIN we are --Oh, HOW SWEET! Now look at this picture:
This one was taken at my 10 year reunion last month...
Someday, I will be first-picture-thin again. Okay, I'm not stupid --I know that having children have changed my shape for eternity (well, until the glorious resurrection! Can't wait for that, baby!) and that it is insane to think that I'll be perky and non-saggy in the middle area unless I get some expensive work done, but, at the same time, I can still weigh the same, you know?
So, Weight Watchers started a week ago. DH and I are doing pretty good. The first week is always hard; and we had two barbeque/picnics to attend this weekend. Talk about pressure and temptation! But we had some little victories, so we're doin' all right.
This morning, a friend and I walked 4 miles!! We're doing it again tomorrow. I'm glad I finally found a friend that not only can consistently walk with me each morning, but can do it early (6AM, people!), for an hour, kicks my butt (but I'm not too slow for her), and is motivating (we're going to run a 10K!). Hooray!
Since I've never met a weight goal before, this is hard for me. Anybody out there have some success stories? (besides my awesome mother who lost close to 40 pounds in 5 months!!)
