      Today was the day I made myself go to WW and join.

      I’m hoping this will turn out to be one of the best days of my life, when I look back months, years from now. Because this was not how I felt today. As I weighed in on the scale and the lady discretely wrote my weight down on my WW passport, I thought I was going to faint.

      WOWOWOWOWOW when did this happen, how could it be???

      169.4 lbs. at 5.4 1/2 that’s enormous.

      So I had two choices, I could go home and cry, call my mom or my girlfriends to bitch, or go to the gym.  

      I refused to let the weight keep me depressed, I will loose it because I no longer like the feeling of my stomach in between my legs....ok...it’s not that bad yet, but it will be. If I learned one thing in the last few years, it is that the weight has no limits, it just piles up if you don’t control what you are eating. Yes exercise helps, but 70% is the FOOD.

      The love hate relationship I have with it has always been an issue for me. There is just no excuse for it anymore.

      I’m going public and I invite you to join me.

      I’ll post frequently of my success, because failure isn’t on my vocabulary list any longer.

        • Hi Yana
          I wish we had connected eariler. Weight Watchers will bring you some success but they do not provide the education women need at our age about metabolism and nutritional timing around our exercise. The mentoring part of weight watchers is what is successful but as soon as you stop going people usually put the pounds back on. I can teach you how to have the metabolism of your twenties, be efficient with your exercise and watch the pounds melt away. The good news is this will be a new lifestyle that is sustainable forever and doesn’t require a coach once you have the basic habits down. There is no counting of calories, just learning new habits. Give me a buzz if you want to learn more.
