Even Happier!


I am smokin hot this week!!
If that table wasn't enough to get you maybe this will!!
Weigh in today
Down 2.6 lbs!!
Total now!!
11.4
When Craig decided to join me in this battle, I made my mind up that we could do this without me going to Weight Watchers meetings! This has to be a huge change in our lifestyles and I was afraid if I depended on that crutch while the weight was coming off I wouldn't make the permanent changes necessary for the life time commitment! I keep the Weight Watchers concept in mind at all times when planning what we are going to eat! Actually I am losing faster now than when I was attending meeting!
I am most proud of Craig, he is addicted to sugar like it was a drug and he has given it up cold turkey!!
He has lost 12 lbs!!
Go Craig!!
I know most of you could care less about this, but it is a huge deal to me! I am more encouraged to today than I was yesterday!
Theresa

I'm battling my last 5 lbs, Theresa. Any weight loss is a big deal in my books so I'm very happy for you (and Craig). Here's to healthy and happy junkers!

Thumbs up, you two! Sugar is so addictive. Giving it up makes you feel so much better! You're doing great!

Congrats Theresa! Weight Watchers is the greatest! I've been a member since... well... 1976. I never had a major weight problem; mostly afer giving birth since I always looked like I was going to have a litter! I started again in 2006, lost 40 pounds, and was back to high school weight. Unfortunately, the perils of 2009 took a toll on me and I'm back up 20 pounds. All those skinny clothes in my closet are calling out, "Pick me! Pick me!"

You are my inspiration... it's time to buckle down and get with the program! I will report back!

Have a great weekend and thanks for sharing your successes!

Lurch and I are on WW too! We are doing like you and Craig are. Weigh once a week at home. I have lost 10 and Lurch has lost 15. We have had a major setback this week as we have had kids at home and we have celebrated too much! Back on the plan tomorrow...hope we haven't done too much damage! Congrats on your accomplishments!
