After much deliberation I decided to commit myself to a weightloss program. My sister is getting married on the 4th of July so that gives me approximately a little less than three months to lose 20 lbs. I think this is a realistic goal. Also, a few weeks back I had my cholesterol checked. Although it was down 32 points, it is still well over 200. Yikes! I suppose its like getting a D- on a test after getting a series of F's. It's better but not great.
My weightloss program of choice is Weight Watchers. I was not thrilled about joining them in all honesty. A few years back I lost 32 lbs on that program and truth be told I am so darn sick of counting points! However, I have a husband that likes to cook and Weight Watchers still allows me to eat what he makes –but in moderation. I believe their tag line included 'there are no forbidden foods.' I do like that. So I'm sucking it up and making the effort. And no, I don't work for them or anything of the sort. They just happen to be the easiest and cheapest. I started Monday. So far so good. I tried on a pair of jeans this morning that were growing a bit snug after my weekend visit to Boston a few weeks ago, and they are definitely a bit looser. Can't complain there!
Today I also started a new group on Vox called 'Losin' It'. I noticed how few groups there were on the subject and thought, what the heck. I'll start my own. I hope in time that it will filled with contributing members. I'm sure we'd all have a lot to learn from each other.
