Tales from the Scale – Take 1

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.
