On Wednesday I joined Weight Watchers along with my friends Aria and Funny Girl. I have spent the past two days figuring out the amount of points each food that I enjoy has and adjusting my menu accordingly.
It is really surprising. I can eat a bunch and hopefully still lose weight. I guess it just depends on what I shovel into my mouth. No more pints of Hagen Daaz but a serving is OK.
Since this is about integrity and being honest about where you are and where you want to be, I am going to do something that I have never done before. I am going to tell you all what my starting weight is.
Before I tell you this I want to say that every time I tell someone my weight, they do not believe me. I guess that my flab is pretty compact and so it doesn't look like I weigh as much as I do.
I currently wear a size 22/24 and weigh 287.5 pounds. My target weight is 124.1 pound. This really seems like a daunting task so I am breaking it down into 10% increments. That means that my current goal is to lose 29 pounds. (man that was hard to admit)
This is NOT going to become a weight loss blog but I will post every week what my weight loss was so that you all can keep track along with me.
It is really scarey for me to be doing this as I will not only be losing flab, but I will be shedding my "security blanket" a pound at a time. There might be a few freak outs and I will make sure to let you know about them.
I am so glad that Funny Girl and Aria are in this with me because I don't know if I would be able to do it on my own.
This is a photo of me from last year. It was the only one I had on my work P.C. that I could post that showed more than my shoulders and above. This is my friend Anne that is with me and this was when Funny Girl told us to look at the flash to take the photo and then pulled her shirt up. Yeah. We are dorks.
