A weighty issue

I started Weight Watchers on-line today. I was trying to work on losing weight on my own, but I'm going in the wrong direction and my clothes are getting tight. So this is it. I like the on-line points calculator - makes things a lot easier than when I tried this years ago before I got pg with the boys. I feel ready. And I feel good about this. I have twenty-five pounds to lose, 17 to get to pre-pg weight. I am setting a goal of my anniversary (June 25) to have lost a decent amount of weight (I'd be happy with five pounds!) - if I do it, I'm buying myself a new dress to go out to dinner with DH. I never buy stuff for myself, so I think it's a good goal.

My head has been hurting again, so bad last night that I could barely get upstairs. Bad enough that I even tried calling upstairs for DH to help me, but he was sound asleep. Not fun. It's probably connected to the fact I haven't been to the chiropractor recently. I have to work that back into my schedule!

And that's all the time I have to post today. Gotta get my butt in gear so we get out the door on time.

Good Luck with the WW online. I am also starting again today. I never did weight watchers, not sure how it works. But I am excited for you!

I will follow the progress and cant wait to see the new dress ;)

Good luck! I was on Weight watchers before I got pregnant last year. And I had lost 12 pounds. I still have over 20 to get to my pre-pregnancy weight, but I am slowly losing. It just takes time. Some days it gets to be really frustrating, but you can do it! Just remember to splurge every one in a while.

Get thee to a chiropractor!
I am totalyl with you on that one. SO many people I talk to say they don't believe in Chiro care, they don't know what they are missing. My migraines are all but gone when I am going regularly.

I started WW last week. Lost 2.2 pounds at my first weigh-in! I don't really want to see the number that I was on my wedding day, but about 10 pounds over that is a healthy weight for me... That's what I'm shooting for. Less than 15 pounds to go!


I'll be your partner in motivation. :)

YEAH! I'm going to check that out today. AND I need to make a chiro appointment. Something I've been putting off...
