I started attending Weight Watchers over 40 yrs. ago, when I was in high school. WOW...that makes me sound really OLD! The closest meeting was 90 miles- one way! My mother and I went together. I think she was doing it more for me than for her. She didn't want me to experience life as a fat person like she had. I guess I wasn't ready back then. In my mid-20's I went back to WW, and took off 75 lb. I didn't recognize the person that I saw in the mirror. I went thru a dramatic physical change, but never really accepted my weight loss emotionally. I'd never had to deal with attention from the opposite sex, or jealousy from other women. I didn't even know how to accept a compliment. I gradually gained the weight back. It made me feel safe. Over the years I have lost 50 lb here...75 lb there, but I would always gain it back, +more, of course. I finally get it. Weight loss is not just physical...it's mental, and emotional. Even spiritual. I have all of the tools that I need here at SparkPeople, and at my WW meetings. I'm not afraid of failing. I'm not afraid of succeeding! It took me 40 years to get to this place- IT*SNEVER2LATE!!! --------------------------------- *TRIBUTE TO BETTY~* Betty Boop is a legend we grew up with and a lady with class, She can be a cowgirl or princess,quiet or sometimes full of sass.

My Goals:
Set short-term goals to
lower my blood sugar levels- OFF my insulin as of Jan/2011 WOO HOO!

Lose the weight slowly (as if I have a choice!)

Eat every 3-4 hrs to keep my blood sugar level.

Track my food intake & Fitness mins.

Eat breakfast within 1 hr. after waking.


















My Program:
Doing WW. I like the flexibility of the program, & learning how to make healthy choices, yet still be able to splurge when I chose. Will attend my meetings weekly. I also have a couple of WW SparkTeams that I joined. WW & Sparks go great together.

Start out moderate on my recumbent exercise bike, say 30 mins. 3-4X/Week. I have a Tai Chi DVD I'm gonna try.

    I have decided to continue tracking my food so that I also can be aware of all that I am eating.
    And thank you so much for all your input.

    Here's to a wonderful and healthy new year.

    Thanks Sandy, loved your comment on my page and your 150% right. I have done it and I can do it again. So 2009 is my 2nd year to shine.
    I have put some weight back on (17 1/2 pounds) but my total loss for the year is still 42 pounds and that is nothing to sneeze at. Or so I have finally realized and I will take off another 42 pounds in 2009 and that will put me that much closer to my goal.

    And the best thing is I will do this while taking my insulin like I am supposed to.

    Have a wonderful new year.
