Memoirs of a Weight Watcher

Getting closer

Yay, Yipee and wooohoooo, I lost another 1.1kilo's this week. I'm now 53.5 and I've lost a total of 12.4 in 18 weeks. Sometimes it's sooo annoying at how long it takes but I figure I'm wanting to keep it off for life so it doesn't matter how long it takes. I have the rest of my life. I have had a reasonable week again this week I think, but we'll wait and see.

With christmas next week I know the next few weeks are going to be difficult but if I stay focused I'll be fine. And Christmas comes once a year so I will have to watch my eating every year. I hate the thought of gaining all that I've lost.

This is my very first ever blog..

I'm really not sure how I'll go, but keep reading anyway and see how long it takes you to get bored.

I've actually been going to weight watchers for four months, and lost 11.3 kilo's. I thought if I start a blog it might help me when I get to maintenance.

This is a photo of me taken on 5th April 2005. Four months ago to be exact, I had lost a little weight before I started weight watchers, but its a fairly good indication of how I looked.

I had just had my 6th child and was contemplating back then whether or not to go to Weight Watchers.

I am so glad I did!!!! It hasn't been easy and there have certainly been some ups and downs.. The downs being weeks where I thought I would of lost alot of weight to find when I stood on the scales I had stayed the same. I haven't had a week where I put on any, but even a small loss wasn't good enough at times to keep me happy. I wanted to lose it and lose it fast. Now I'm pleased I didn't as I know It'll stay off for life!!!

I had lost about 8 kilo's or so before I started weight watchers, but couldn't do the rest on my own.

My stats started as:

WW start Date 10th August 2005

Start Weight 65.9

Height 150cm 4ft 11

Nearly There

Well I'm almost at my maintenance, I'm under the weight watchers goal weight, which is between 45 - 56 kilo's. I now weigh 54.6 and am hoping to get to 52.

This photo was taken about 4 weeks and 3 kilo's ago. It's not a very good photo... ( I still don't like having my photo taken). The thing different with this one, is my nine year old son took it.
