Here I am today. I've lost 8.3 pounds. I wish I would have taken pictures when I started tracking almost three weeks ago, but I didn't think to before today. So, like I did before, I'll take these photos every 10 pounds I lose. It gives me perspective as to what it looks like to lose ten pounds. It really can make a difference! Since I'm so close to losing 10 already, I won't take the photos at -10 pounds, but will again at -20. Losing another 1.7 isn't going to look any different on me at this point. :)

When I look at these pictures I have very mixed emotions. I think I'm a pretty lady in the first picture of just my face. I think my cheeks look fuller than I want them to, but I'm happy with the overall look. The other three pictures bother me, a lot. I know what the scale says. I know how I feel (tired), but until I saw the pictures, I didn't realize how others saw me. That's a big girl! I have a long road ahead of me to reach my goals, but I'm certain that I can not only reach them, but maintain them. I will not go back to this again. I can't go back here again if I want to live the full life I want.

Weekly Weigh-in {April 24th, 2015}

I got up early this morning to do some cleaning before my parents arrive for the weekend. My little guy is turning 9!! I can't believe it. He's one of my biggest reasons for wanting to lose the weight. He's going to be nine and needs his mom to be around and would love to have a  mom who was more active with him. He's worth the work!!

My scale says I dropped 3.3 pounds this week! Yay!! That's 8.3 down my first two weeks.

Welcome Back!'s been awhile. Hi to anyone who's still out there reading! Boy oh boy, this blogging thing hasn't stuck with me for quite some time, has it? Well, here I go again! I started counting calories and WW points last Friday, April 10th. I'm using a combination of My Fitness Pal and an old Weight Watchers calculator. I'm counting points the old fashioned way, not with Points Plus. I did really well losing weight with the older program, so I'm going back to what I know worked for me before. I'm tracking it all in MFP. So far, I'm doing well! If you're reading this, please leave me a little comment. I have NO idea if I have any readers out there anymore. I'll be so happy if I do! :)
