Initial Weigh In (#0) Everyone is Getting Healthy!

I am so lucky to have such positive influences in my life. I am very thankful for that.
So Amy, who jumped on her treadmill for 25 minutes today, and Trish, who started her WW program today, and Jamie who has very good exercise habits formed is working on the healthy eating, thank you. Thank you for not leaving me here and for sharing with me all the good things you are doing for you.
You are all moving forward on your healthy goals and I am certainly not going to feel very good if I just keep doing what I'm doing and keep getting what I'm getting. I'm getting on board this train... don't want to be sitting on MFA watching everyone sipping their lemon water and playing with their kids... I want to play to!
I want to be able to feel good and be able to be involved with activities and have a healthy body so I better get going. You have to take advantage of the momentum when it comes along, right?
So I'm doing it with you, even though I haven't really figured out how to balance everything I've got going now... but I'm sure I'll figure it out.
How about "Before Pictures"? You can thank me for not doing this in my underwear in the comments... nothing more motivating than being able to see your progress right?
(deep breath)
This was the best I could do. Had to get Husband to help...
He asked me, "Are you sure you want to stand sideways like that?" Read, "That is not the most flattering pose..."

Okay. This is what I've got to work with.
I'm going to be really glad I did this when I'm hot, right??
I am setting a goal of 120 minutes of exercise /week in February and 53ish pounds will be gone by .... Valentines Day next year. That is 4.5 pounds a month. I think being 25 pounds lighter by August sounds like an AWESOME thing.

Thank you for not doing the picture in your underwear. LOL
Seriously, the picture is a good idea!
When I was on Atkins I took a pic every so often wearing the exact same clothes. It was fun to see the clothes getting looser and looser in the pics.
I should do that again. I'll have Roger take a pic for me tonight. Which will be hard. I really avoid the camera when I'm this size. :(
Did you know it's only about $65 to loin WW online for 3 months? I figure it will keep me motivated for at least those 3 months. I'm too careful with our money now to waste it! LOL And hopefully by the end of 3 months the weight loss will keep me motivated to continue. Online is good for me. I function pretty well in that setting. I don't have to get dressed! LOL You can do your tracking online with mobile devices too. That would be good for you. You're all tech savvy like that. :)
Whatever you do it'll be my honor to be a loser with you. ;)

WOW SIS!! I am so proud of you. I was thinking about doing a picture. Now I will JUST for YOU!! I walked last night for 25 minutes and this morning. I figure I will start out slow and push myself a little more everyday. I really wanted to go shopping this weekend for food but, with our fridge not working I thought it was not a good idea.

Love Ya!!
