Biggest Loser Tuesday

I have had problems with my weight all my life. Always had a few pounds to lose - tried so many diets and it would work for a while and then I would gain it all back...


This is me 4 years ago with 40 pounds too many...

Look at that round face!! ;0

I then joined Weight Watchers and lost over 40 pounds in about 8 months - which I kept off for about 2 years.






I have left WW about a year ago, because I thought I could do it myself... wrong!!! I have slowly gained back 15 pounds which I hate hate hate!!

So, after seeing how Cari is keeping herself accountable by posting every week at http://hailiriley.blogspot.com/ - I decided to follow her great example and do it myself!!

So, here I am, today, with 15 pounds to lose...



My plan for the week is to go to the gym 3 times, drink water (which I don't do...) and cut down on sweets.

I'm hoping this will encourage me to eat healthy, continue my exercises and lose a few pounds!! Thanks for listening!!

That is awesome!! I so need to do this too! It is sooo busy (at least that's my excuse) that I keep putting it off. I have lost mine by running but I haven't run in forever! Time to dust off those running shoes!

Joanne said...

Good for you! I need to shed a few myself.

Sharon said...

Hard to believe you have anything to lose! Good luck!

BTW, I am also on the bandwagon but with lots more to lose. Maybe I'll show a pic when I have just 15 pounds left to lose. ;)

What a great example you are! And you're going to do it; I KNOW it! I'm at least sticking with my exercise commitment, but the food part. . . . not so much :(

Good for you! I have lost and gained large amounts of weight multiple times. I put back on all the weight I lost last year and am feeling pretty bummed about it.

Dear Reds
YOU CAN DO IT!!!! It takes courage to post your self-challenge on your blog for all to see, but it will help in your quest for your goal. You're a great person inside AND out and I'm proud to be your friend.

I am going to a seminar that my friend is doing.. its on EFT (tapping) and for weight loss, but it works! I have heard and seen some amazing stories.

Theres info all over the net for it.. check it out, every bit helps.

Good luck, and we are all there with you in spirit.
