I've got a lot of stuff going on right now so instead of pigging out, I am going to remind myself all the reasons I want to lose weight.

1. health
2. appearance
3. to feel better
4. I won't get winded tying my shoes
5. to wear prettier clothes
6. live longer
7. apply for Survivor
8. ???

That's all I can think of for now. Feel free to post any reasons you have for losing weight.

Here we go...

I'm totally new to this, but jumping in with both feet. I'm using this blog to track my journey of losing weight. I am sure there will be good and bad, but I'm going to post it all. I would enjoy any comments about your experiences with weight loss or any other words of encouragement. I am doing Weight Watchers Online (no meetings). I will post how much weight I've lost, but won't be posting how much I weigh...yet. Maybe down the line I won't feel bad about saying how much I used to weigh, but right now I can't do it.

So far I have lost 9#s in 3 weeks and am looking forward to another 90#s. My goal date is January 1, 2010. It sounds like a long time, but it comes out to 5#s per month (1.5#s per week), which is a safe goal. I am told that slow, steady weight loss is more likely to stay off so this is my goal.
