Ever since High School I have been around 136/137 pounds. I'm only 5'4", but I have always danced and been pretty active so it was a lot of muscle so I was never really overweight. It stayed that way until college - and now I've been out of school for almost 4 years. I'm still around the same weight, but let me tell you that my body has CHANGED. 136 pounds of dancer muscle looks a lot different than someone who spends a lot of the day inside at a computer or entertaining clients at a bar (I'm not a stripper, I'm in sales.)

Oh, and I've decided to blog this fun journey - come visit!!

Weight Watchers
I was a Weight Watchers kid. Not officially Smile but my mother was ALWAYS on WW growing up. I go to meetings when I feel a little heavy, but I can't go all the time, simply because it's too expensive. Also, counting points is pretty much a way-of-life for me at this point. Even my boyfriend understands points, and he's never been to a meeting in his life.

I think my point is just that you can TOTALLY do WW without meetings, but it is really important to have someone with you that understands it through & through. If you don't, just go to the meetings for a few months til you get the hang of it. Then you can roll from there.

Too tired to workout?!
CHOCOLATE!!! When I have a day like that I think to myself "I really need chocolate, but I'll feel guilty if I don't work out..." So, I work out burn off a 300-500 calories and eat 50-100 calories of delicious chocolateyawesomeyumminess.

Yummy low point sweets
Personally, I go for chocolate. When I need a sweet fix, fruit and other stand-ins don't do it. So I get a bag of individually wrapped mini candy... my favorite is Dove Dark Chocolate. I keep them in the freezer and have one a night. It's one point and totally worth it. The freezing keeps me from piling them into my mouth all at once! Smile

Times Article - Detox & Cleanses
Very interesting - Let me know what you think!! Personally I've never done a cleanse or fat flush but I know a lot of people here have!! I don't really have an opinion one way or the other, but this article brings up a lot to consider:
