The Journey Continues

What a Difference....8.5 lbs until Goal

I've been working hard for more than 2 and a half years to get rid of it.  I dug up this picture from Thanksgiving Day 2011 when I really filled out that apron.  I can tie it around myself twice now...

Getting rid of the weight I had gained in my 30s and 40s was never something I thought I'd realistically be able to do. I got caught up in the myth that once over 35, that's it.  I was coming up on a milestone birthday within a few months and sat down on my bed to put my shoes on and heard/felt a terrible CRUNCH.  The bed's caster broke.  Two days later, I was attending my first Weight Watchers meeting in many years.  I had tried doing it on my own, online, so many times, but this time was different.

And it has been.
