17 Down


I was not going to divulge this information with anyone other than my immediate family, but I am so thrilled with my results thus far, that I wanted to share my secret with all my blogger friends.

I have had a portion control problem with food. I was unable to control my eating habits and over the years, 40 plus pounds have been packed onto my small 5'1 petite frame. So I, along with 2 of my closest friends have joined the Weight Watchers program. I joined on a whim. I really did not see that I was in fact that "short, chubby girl with a pretty face". I joined because it was time to take a stand and do something about my problem with overeating and portion control. I joined because I am sick and tired of not feeling good about myself, not fitting into my clothes and not having any energy.

I am here to give you all my personal testimony that Weight Watchers works! The program works because it is not a diet! It is a life style change about eating right and living healthy. Over the past two months, I have lost over 17 pounds! My intentions are to keep on going! The more I lose the more momentum and desire I have to lose more! Of course, the program works hand in hand with exercise. I have tried to step up my cardio and now that Spring is here, I have been way more active outside.

Did I mention that I joined the program with two of my closest galfriends? Well, they too are having much success on the program! And it is so nice to have their support.

This is a serious life style change for me and I fully intend on becoming a life-time Weight Watcher's member. I will keep you all posted as I slowly but surely drop the pounds. Please keep me in your prayers as I continue on my healthy life-style journey.

Yay!! Hooray for healthy living and quality-of-life choices!

You are so right. Long-lasting health won't come from any diet...it comes from a commitment to healthy lifestyle choices.

Healthy is ALWAYS beautiful! Best of luck to you. I understand about keeping things private, but do let us know how you are doing if you're comfortable with that.

I joined Weight Watchers and it really was working, but it costs more than my budget can afford. I do not do well without the support, but I cannot support myself and them, too.
