Profile Information

About Me:
Wow...so things have changed since I started this blog. I'm reaching my one year with Weight Watchers, I just graduated from college and I have no clue what i'm doing...

The only thing I do know is that I'm changing my life, getting fit and healthy.

It's been a rough road, and i'm glad it has because it's given me unique character...at least I think so.

Since my best friend/WW partner has moved up north, my other WW partner moved back home after graduation...my accountability and motivation has definitely taken a toll. So I realized how much I need this support system to keep going.

I'm going to give it my all...I refuse to settle...i'm so worth it.

but today I went to weigh in...and I gained 1.4lbs...last week I gained 2.4 lbs...last week I can own up to the gain, I had a lot of fun for three weeks celebrating graduation. This week I was back on point, gaining the APs, eating filling foods, watching my hunger cues...

They kept asking me are… Continue

Hope everyone is well today. I figured i'd do a quick post before work.



Yesterday was a great day, woke up at 5 for the gym, did some cardio. Got 4 APs out of it so that's always a plus.



During the day I was great, made my meals, made my snack, even made those strawberry shortcake bites for work to celebrate June! Happy June by the way!!!

It has really been forever and a day! I'm not mad at myself for losing track with this, I mean life got hectic. Am I so excited to be back...absolutely!!!

Hi everyone!



I hope everyone had a fabulous holiday and New Year. Weight loss wise I can't say it was stellar. Life wise though it wasn't too bad!



Anyways..i'm freaking out here. I really started to work out hardcore coming back from the holidays. I hadn't gone to two weigh ins so I figured suck it up and start working out like you mean it. I did and was excited for WI on Wednesday and it was CANCELLED w.o me knowing. So I go and am disappointed, but it didn't put me off… Continue

Hey girl, our stories sound very similar! I played basketball and volleyball all through high school. At the moment I weight the same as when I started university 6 years ago - however I am not a muscular - can't fit into some of the old jeans I used to wear. My plan is still to lose 20 for my ww goal, but another 10 on top of that for my personal goal. Keep up the great work - your pictures look great!
