Weight Watchers

I joined today. I figure if I've starting charting I might was well get my butt in gear & also start getting healthier (less carbs, better portion control, more exercise) for when DH finally gets a friggin' job & we start TTC. I have over 100lbs to lose to get to my ideal BMI; I would honestly be happy with 50. At -50 I would be back at what I refer to as my "Ghana weight" from when I spent a semester abroad in undergrad & lost about that much in 5 months. I was still a big girl, but in shape, mainly because I walked all over creation. This was also despite everything being fried & there being no such thing as diet soda in Africa. Yep, there are obese vegetarians out there; I'm one of them! I'll post how much I lose (or gain) here every week after my meeting; I figure being "open" about the struggle will help me in the long run.

Good luck! I know how hard it is, but my mom lost a ton of weight on WW and looks fabulous, so I think you should be ok! :-)

Also good luck on the job!

You can do it. I'll be eagerly awaiting to see your posts. Are you gonna just do the WW online or are you going somewhere?

I'm going to meetings because if I do it online I'll lie & cheat; I need someone to be accountable to. First weigh in is tomorrow night!
