So as all women know...we gain weight when we have children...and sometimes its hard to get off. For almost 11 months now I have been down about the weight I gained and have really had a hard time losing it. Looking in the mirror for me is just torture...
So instead of just talking about it, this week I decided to take action. Yesterday I decided to start Weight Watchers. I am using some books that my cousin Laura gave me and some that my mom gave me.
I have been so motivated by others around me working hard to lose weight; my cousins, mom, aunt, sister, and many others. My mom has been on weight watchers for almost a year now and has lost about 60 pounds. She looks great and I am so proud of her.
When I see others losing weight and making effort to do so it makes me really want to try hard.
Yesterday was a hard day because my issue is not what I eat but how much of it...I love food--too much and I eat too many portions. So my goal with weight watchers is to trim those portions and become accustomed to that lifestyle.
I don't agree with giving up all foods and the ones I love but I think certain things should be cut out and portion controlled. I have decided to try and give up pop and really focus on drinking water.
I am looking forward to spring and summer when I can go to the Farmer's Market for fresh veggies and fresh fruits...I am looking forward to losing weight and having a healthier lifestyle.
So here I go. Excited to get healthy! Also had to add a picture of Addy...
