I have been following Weight Watchers since the first of 2009 ( I actually started on January 4th). It has been the best decision I ever made and one of the easiest to follow through. By following the plan (btw, I do not attend the meetings) and joining the YMCA; I have managed to go from 217 lbs and a size 18 to 177 lbs and a size 14. That is 40 lbs in 7 months. I can tell a huge difference in the way I look and more importantly feel. So I have decided to share this journey through pictures.
December 2009... my biggest EVER! 217 lbs!
January 2009... the weekend before I started WW.
March 2009 (Sorry for no Feb. picture) down approx. 15 lbs.
April 2009. Won the Biggest Loser Challenge at work by losing 27 lbs.
May 2009. Stuck in the 180's
June 2009... trying to get it the 170's. Can't seem to get past 180.
This is only the first part of the weight loss journey. I am hoping to get down to 145-150 which requires me to lose another 30 lbs. I know that this will take a lot longer than the first 40 lbs did. I plan on setting small goals for myself and working on reaching them too help keep myself motivated. My next small goal is to be in the 160's before I go back to work on August 17th. Right now that is giving me 4 weeks to lose 7.3 lbs. I know that I can do it through exercise and keeping up with my points. I would love to hear about others success with Weight Watchers or another diet plan. I know that their of lots of great plans out their and it is all about finding what works for you.
