I don't usually share much information of a personal nature here on my blog, but I'm making an exception for a minute because I'm celebrating a milestone. Like so many women, I started putting on the pounds through the years without really realizing it. Three years ago I woke up one morning and didn't like what I saw in the mirror. I joined Weight Watchers and it took me exactly one year to loose 50 pounds. A couple of weeks ago was the two year anniversary of maintaining my goal weight. None of it has been easy - and it probably never will be. Not a day goes by that I wouldn't love to eat a big bag of M&Ms or a giant Hershey bar, (can you tell chocolate is my weakness?) but I've learned to be content with a small bite now & again so I don't feel deprived. Here are a couple of before & after pictures so you can see how my looks have changed. I feel 10 years younger and have lots more energy than I used to, plus I know I'm a lot healthier, and it's fun to buy new clothes!
