following: Weight Watchers
performance: losing 1.3 lb a week
I have been struggling with weight issues my whole life. Even when I was younger and thought I was overweight, I was actually fairly thin and very athletic and active. Once I got older and the 3 sports that I used to play at a time stopped. The weight crept up on me!
I tried weight watchers before and had great results, I lost 30-40lbs and was very happy with myself. I was eating great and even was a vegitarian for 8 years. Then when I met my husband who is a meat and potatoes kind of guy, I started to take on his eating habbits. He doesn't do vegetables unless they are raw, and he is constantly trying to gain weight! HE does work out, lift weights on a daily basis but he can eat whatever he wants. I thought well if he can eat that why can't I? Well, after having 2 kids in 3 years and eating whatever he was eating....NOW I KNOW WHY! That 40 lbs is back on, and then some!
I stay home with my children during the day and do work part time at night. I have somewhat of a crazy schedual and thought well what is the poing of dieting if I can't exercize? For me it has to be both! I can't lose weight if I am not active, my metabolism needed a serious jump start!
So I started back up on weight watchers about a week ago and joined the gym. I started putting myself first and am trying to not feel guilty about leaving the house for 2 hours to go work out.
I do have a bit of a crazy schedual but so far I am VERY motivated.
I did it before I can do it again!
I am trying to lose around 40-50lbs, but I am trying not to look at the numbers on the scale. I tend to become obsessive about that and I get discouraged easily.
Good luck to all!!
