Reached my initial goal weight!!
My motivation was when my Wii would jump on the scale and then exclaim "You're obese!" then swell up. It was nice to get back on after a couple of weeks and watch it shrink for once...only to be disappointed when it recommended losing even more weight. Sad Oh well, I gave up drinking for Lent (and the last couple pounds) so I might as well go for it while I still have 4 weeks left.

How do I post images on here?
Sorry usually I am pretty adept at computers but not figuring this one out correctly. Any help is appreciated.

Reached my initial goal weight!!
LOL - don't pay attention to the food diary as I have not been updating that at all. I switched off WW and followed my own plan after I went to see my doctor. I am proud to have reached this weight but bummed that I am so attached to my Wii that I now need to make that proud! Ha! Will post pics if I can find some good ones. Thanks for all the encouragement. It's been a long road but I feel great. Smile
