My New Habit

Hey y'all!  Well, I did it!  Last Wednesday, I joined Weight Watchers.  I'm happy about it and I'm committed to follow through with it for the long haul.  Of course I want to look good.  I want to be able to go in a store and look at the "normal" sizes vs. the "plus" or "real women" sizes.  Real Women my big booty, they have some Ad Team sitting around a big conference table brainstorming on how to make us "healthier" women feel not so bad about ourselves by calling us the Real Women.  I'm just speaking for me now, but that is just a ploy to make me not want to loose weight so that I will continue to buy the bigger sizes and pay more money for the clothing.  Oh, I really don't want to get started down this road........I think you kind of get my drift on this.
The main reason for doing this, is to get healthy.  I'm not healthy at this size, everything in my body has to work twice as hard as it would if I was my optimum weight.  And that starts to get a little scary thinking about that once you start getting older.  I know people my age that have died.  DIED, I said. I'm 56.  I still feel very young mentally.  Like, where has the time gone????  I don't like this getting older bull_____, you know what I mean.  People don't prepare you for this.  Now, here I am 56, fat, and don't wanna be this way any more.  So now I have to kick my booty, and get it in to shape.  Then maybe I can live even longer and get even older, hahaha.  Seriously though, this is it.  I'm doing it, I'm in it for the long run.  Going to the meetings every week, doing exercise, psyching myself up, all that stuff......
So this is Tuesday, weigh in is tomorrow morning.  I'm closing for today and I will report back tomorrow when I get home.  Oh, I guess I didn't mention earlier, you guys are going on this journey with me.  I'm gonna try to update you every week along with other stuff, but this weight loss adventure will be in here too.

Well......anyone bet money on whether I lost weight or not?  I did, yayyyyy, 5.2 lbs.  I'm very happy and surprised.  I didn't have all the food I needed to start this last week, but I was very careful (except for when Emmy was eating mini marshmallows and before I knew it, I had eaten a couple of handfuls without thinking and then I'm like, oh, how did these jump in to my mouth, bahahaha) and I cut the amount of sugar in half, in HALF, do you hear me,  in my tea, that was seriously hard.  I went through some serious sugar withdrawals last week.  So here I am, in it for the second week.  Food can be just as much of an addiction as anything else and I'm a life long junkie (more on this later).

Closing for now, I have to go to the Farmer's Market, grocery, and any place else that I need to go to feed my new habit.  Love you guys for sharing this with me.

See you in the funny papers!!!
