Ok, I have to be honest here. For the past several years, I've been telling myself that I don't look too bad for an old broad. I would look in the mirror and think that I could look a whole lot worse. Then I saw the pictures of me at Sherrie's graduation. I couldn't fool myself any longer. Pictures don't lie. Somewhere along the way, I had gotten fat (I'm just calling a spade a spade). It started with stress eating when I became a caretaker for my elderly dad. Working full time, taking care of a household, animals and him just got to be too much and I began to eat. The problem was, when he passed, I didn't stop eating. Prior to his coming to live with us, I had joined Weight Watchers and lost about 28 pounds. I felt good and looked good as well. So I've decided to join WW online this time. My original leader had left and I just couldn't find a connection with any of the other leaders available. I mean watching a grown woman prance across the room in footie pj's riding on a stick horse was just not my cup of tea. So Monday I bit the bullet and signed up. It's actually quite easy to track the points. My only problem is that I feel like I'm hungry all the time. I find myself counting the minutes until I can have my snack. I suppose I'll get used to it. So I hope you'll follow along with me as I once again undertake this journey. Opps, gotta go. I hear my crackers calling my name!
