My Journey to Good Health

Do you love how I just kind of quickly mentioned that I’ve been on Weight Watchers and then moved on in yesterday’s post? Well, Life List #45: Get Healthy has actually been one of the most important goals in my life recently (and certainly more worthy of just one sentence on this blog) but I’ve been scared to say anything.

Isn’t that silly?

Deep breath….here goes.

Me at Bloggy Boot Camp – September 15, 2012

Since July I’ve been on Weight Watchers and have lost 27.8 pounds so far. I’m about halfway to my goal weight but just now feel like I can really talk about it because, honestly – I’ve made several false attempts before this time.

Have you been there, too?

I’ve been working hard. Motivated by my mother’s heart attack earlier this year and my own weight and health issues, I decided I needed to get serious.

Seriously. I’m 4’10”. My body wasn’t happy about carrying 50 plus pounds of extra weight and it was screaming at me daily. My back hurt, my legs hurt, my knees hurt. And my blood work showed I was headed for some real problems down the not so distant road.

So by sticking to the Weight Watchers program, making good food choices and exercising three times a week (Jazzercise and a running program called Couch to 5K) I’ve managed to turn things around…but I still have a ways to go.

I’m really excited to share with you things that have worked for me so far. And I will…I promise! In my next several posts I plan to give you “the skinny” about resources that have helped me.

One of which is a fabulous friend I met at Bloggy Boot Camp last weekend in Dallas. She’s on a similar journey and we have so much in common, it’s scary. Wait ’til you meet her!

But first – did I tell you? I’ve lost 27.8 pounds, ya’ll!!!

    Yay! You are over half way there! It feels so good to take control of our health. You are doing awesome! And from my own experience “outing” yourself is a good motivator to keep it going.
