New Endeavors

So I have not recently been doing many updates as I have had much going on in my life! Today is the first day of my new way of eating. I went to my first Weight Watchers meeting last night. I am starting the process with my mom. I have simply allowed myself to get too far out of shape and I turn 30 this year. I certainly do not want to hit that milestone feeling non-confident and like a beached whale! But I have to get it into my mind that this is not a diet, but a change in my way of life. I have to view how I eat differently and change my habits. I am pretty excited about today actually. I am starting out right, went to do my grocery shopping last night and have done my research on recipes and points values. I have my bag packed today full of veggies and fruits. I am tracking the points I eat all day long. It is an entirely new way of looking at food for me and I am not going to set myself up for failure. I want to do this the right way and allow myself every opportunity to succeed. Next Monday when I step on that scale, we will see if what I am doing will work or if I am on the wrong track entirely.
So wish me luck! For those of you who may be attempting Weight Watchers I wish you luck as well and hope that maybe we can inspire one another to be stronger and healthier.


  1. Best of luck! I turned 30 last year and it wasn't as bad as I had thought. I think having a positive outlook at your life and yourself helps so its great that you are striving for that. It's also great that you are sharing the journey with your mom.

    Happy Tuesday!

  2. Well congratulations for the start! I have a neighbor who went and is still going through weight watchers. In the last year she has lost 22 lbs and looks great!! I know you will be able to do it. It sounds like they have a good support system. Take care!
