Start Weight:(17 Jan 14) 205.0 lb
Current Weight:(20 Jun 14) 181.2 lb
Goal Weight:160.0 lb
following: Weight Watchers
performance: losing 2.6 lb a week

My journey started May 15, 2013 at 260 pounds with Weight Watchers. I've lost 78 pounds since that day. This plan works for me because it is a GREAT plan AND I'm dedicated; both these factors must be there for success!
I've struggled with my weight since about age 25. Never truly motivated to solve the problem, AND it was always easier to complain about being fat than it was to do anything about it. AND no one ever challenged me to do anything about it, so in the back of my mind I just thought it was OK. Add in childbearing (no regrets), emotional eating, depression, inactivity, and a hysterectomy at 43, and you have a lethal combination of 240 lbs, a ticking time bomb for any woman.
BIG heart health scare in January 2011. GOD saved me that day, but do you think I did the right thing after that to lose the weight and get healthy? Oh, NO. I went into denial and put on 20 more pounds...SIGH....and stopped going to my wonderful doctor. I also thought I was going to die soon anyway, so what was the point?
Flash forward over two more years of irresponsible health behavior, and I need to have a small outpatient "female" surgery in May 2013; because I had not taken care of myself as I should have, I could not be put to sleep to have it done....so it got done in the office with a local. No more denial. Enough was enough. It was TIME to GET OVER IT AND GET IT RIGHT!

This will be a LIFETIME battle to ensure I don't return to the unhealthy eating and lifestyle habits I'm working so hard to discard permanently. There are health effects I will keep for the remainder of my life because of my past irresponsibility, but I've also overcome so many with just getting the dragging weight off my frame and changing what I put into it each and every day.
One day at a time, one pound at a time. I am CAPABLE and CAN DO IT !!!

Linking Fatsecret to fitness apps
I wish it would, I've not been using my Fitbit much lately but would do so if I could upload it here. I guess it's considered a competitor.

What to do about clothes?
I buy my jeans on eBay, love NYDJ (Not Your Daughter's Jeans) - they are $90-$120 new, I get used for $20 and up. Also Venezia / Lane Bryant which is a great fit, but now that I'm in a 14 I won't be buying that brand any longer as that's the smallest size. Just bought a pair of Silver Brand Lola Boyfriend Skinny jeans on clearance at Dillards - WOW, never thought I'd be able to get a pair of those !! They aren't quite as slim looking as my NYDJ's (they are trendy juniors style, "destroyed" with a lower rise) but they are fun and have bling on the back pockets. Plus I can resell them when they get too big, which I hope will be about the time summer ends.

Sea food is good or bad in weight loss?
There's some very healthy fish out there full of good protein. But you want to avoid the butter and deep fried breading put on so much of it. Fish meals often come with hushpuppies and fries - you may want to forgoe those and ask for salad and low/no fat dressing.

That's awesome!!! I just recently dropped in to the "overweight" category, when my BMI went below 30 for the first time (at about 60 pounds lost, right to 200). I love the goals and rewards you have on your profile. When I get to 75 pounds off I either want a LV bag (preowned) or a new refrigerator.....I can tell you what my hubby will say about that LOL !!!!! (he'd vote for the fridge). Heck, might do both!!! You are rocking this !!!!!
