No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
Its been a very long time since I posted on this site. I've joined and rejoined Weight Watchers at least 4 times in the past 4 years. Each time I joined I promised myself I was going to succeed at it this time but in the end I always gave up. Then May 2011 I decided to rejoin for the very last time and as of today I'm still doing the program and enjoying it.
I have lost 94 lbs this time around (117 lbs from my heaviest weight) and I'm feeling good about myself. I'm finally able to shop in regular size stores now instead of plus size ones. I still want to lose another 40 lbs and I know I will do that one step at a time.
The past year and a half hasn't been easy, I've had many struggles when it comes to this weight loss journey. There have been weeks when I have had big losses but there have been weeks when I have had big gains too. I've gotten discouraged and I've wanted to quit but I didn't want to end up over 300 lbs again. So I stuck with it and I'm glad I did. I'm proud of what I have accomplished so far and I feel wonderful when people compliment me on my weight loss.
This is a journey that I will be on for the rest of my life. I will have ups and downs. I realize that I will have bad days, I will have weeks when I will gain but the main thing is that I don't quit. Quitting is no longer an option for me. I'm in this for good.
The pic on the left is when I joined Weight Watchers in May 2011 and the one on the right was taken in June 2012 when I had 70 lbs gone. Since then I have lost another 24 lbs. I hope to get another pic done soon.
