Here I am!

My friends have been bugging me about starting my own blog for some time now. I put it off, and put it off, and really just wanted to figure out a main theme for my blog if I was going to start one. Recently, I went back to Weight Watcher's AGAIN, but am bound and determined to stick with it this time, maybe because the big 5-0 is looming ever closer, and I have over 100 lbs to lose at this point in my life, and don't want to gain even more.

So...this morning, before I even got out of bed, I had an "aha moment" it came to me. I'll create a blog about my journey back to a "normal weight", and the triumphs and trials along the way. It won't be completely about weight loss, (cuz that would be boring to most people), but I promise to update you all at least weekly on my progress, (or lack thereof). I'm hoping that I will be able to encourage others with a lot of weight to lose, and my readers will also provide encouragement and accountability to me along my weight-loss journey. Is that a deal?

I'm not going to post my starting weight, not even my own darling husband is privy to that information. I'm not ready to do that at this point, but after losing a significant amount, I probably will. So far though, I've lost 5.4 lbs the first week, and another 5.8 lbs the second, for a total of 11.2 lbs!
Hopefully, I will not only keep that off, but will lose another couple by the end of this week.

I weigh in on Monday evenings, so I will update on Monday nights or Tuesday mornings and let y'all know how it's going, and if anything else interesting happens during the week...well, who knows? I might just post about that too.

Yeah! Can't wait to see you blogging all the funny things!
I really need to join you girls on the WW, I have 50lbs to lose.
I was thinking of exercising for blog comments. But I won't do it, so I haven't put that out there yet.

I didn't get whatever comment you made that would make me think you had a blog. I must be dense.
