Let the blogs begin...

I realized today that I haven't blogged since April 2007, which is kind of a record for me. Oh, xanga. Wait, I have blogged on myspace...I really don't count that, though. So I'll start with something that I'm obsessing about lately: my weight loss!

I started a new eating plan on January 6, 2008, and began Weight Watchers (on my own, no meetings except with Leslie!) a week later on January 17. Since the 6th, as of my WI this morning, I'm down 16 pounds! That really thrills me, and it's such motivation that if I can do that in a month, of course I can reach my ultimate goal of being down 55 pounds! I didn't set a date for that one, but I am pushing to be down my 10%, which is 20 pounds, by our one year anniversary, March 3. I think I can get there before then, but I don't want to push myself. Originally I wanted to start in December and my goal was to lose all the 30 pounds (YES THIRTY POUNDS!!) I'd gained since the wedding by our anniversary. Then I realized it was December and, really, who starts a diet in December? I hope to be wedding weight by April at least. We'll see. I'm just really happy about how well everything's going. I want to find a track (because I can't afford a gym), but for now I am loving and enjoying my precious TurboJam and the occasional WATP. Leslie is a HUGE blessing and she put the bug in my ear about WW, which I'd never tried before but have quickly grown to LOVE. It's perfect for me, and it's exactly what I need to stay on track.

I swear I'm not all about weight loss, but it's what really matters to me, health-wise, right now, and it makes me feel good. I think this is the end of my first post. Oh, it is.

Your page is so cute! She did a great job! I love the green behind it. I may have told you about WW, but you are quickly becoming the queen. I'm so lucky to have you next door. You may want to go in under comments and allow anonymous comments, so people that don't have google accounts can comment too. I didn't know you had to do that until someone told me. See you tomorrow!
