I did it. After six months, I hit my 25-pound weight loss goal. Since November 16, 2008, I have lost a total of 25.2 pounds. And I didn’t use any pills or shakes or other help-you-lose-pounds-quick-scheme. I did it on my own…sort of. 

I joined Weight Watchers on November 16 of last year and that is what has helped me on this weight loss journey. I have finally learned about healthy eating and am now, doing it right. And I have quit DIETING! I am hoping that this rollercoaster ride I have been on will finally smooth out and not have so many hills and valleys.

I still have some issues to work out…like the whole exercising thing. I do some, but not what I should be doing, which is probably why it has taken me six months to lose those 25 pounds. I also need to not beat myself up if I slip up and have a piece or two or three of cake. I am still learning and I am enjoying every minute of it.

I hope you stay with me as I continue this journey. Thanks for reading!

  1. Congratulations! I have been reading your blog with interest as I too am trying to lose weight. It can be so frustrating and difficult! I am in the beginning stages of my “lifestyle change” and get really discouraged when the weight doesn’t fall off like I think it should. I know that it took time to gain it, so it will take time to lose it, but I am so impatient! Continued good luck to you! Keep up the good work!


  2. Thanks, Dragonfly…..I have finally realized that it does take time and EFFORT! Don’t get discouraged. Just keep thinking of the end result. And always remember these two things: “Nothing tastes as good as being healthy feels.” “What you eat in private, you wear in public.” That last one was/is something that really hit home for me. Good luck to you and your healthy journey!
