Weight watchers

I almost didn't post this because I know of at least one reader here who does not like "diets".  But I just thought I'd let you all know once and then I won't be discussing it much anymore.  Last Friday I joined weight watchers online.  I was getting tired of being tired all the time and feeling like a big icky blob.  My body was starting to hurt more often and I just felt like my overall health was off.  I want to be a healthy mom, I want to be around a long time for my kids and have energy to play with them.  I did weight watchers once before before I had Emma and it worked wonders for me.  I lost 118 pounds!  While my number is still no where close to where it was before I was feeling like it was creeping back up.  I bought a scale and was disappointed by the number standing before me,,,, I was right, I had gained some more back, plus I never really lost the weight I had gained 3 years ago when I got preggo with Emma. 

While its not about the number on the scale, I want to feel good about myself again.  I know mentally what to do but obviously just wasn't doing it so my hope is that rejoining the program will give me the motivation that I was lacking.   The program has changed a lot since the last time I did it.  All the points values on foods are higher, but I also get more daily points.  The other thing I want to do different this time is exercise.  I didnt do much of that last time and I know how important exercising and moving is.  I haven't started yet but hopefully within the next couple weeks I'll set up a plan for myself. 

So there you have it, I won't bore you with the info anymore.  If you want to check-in on my progress though you can check the sidebar and every Friday I will update my losses.
