Thursday Thirteen

13 positive things that have come from my Weight Watchers experience

1. Down 20 lbs....woohoo (going for 15 more)!!!

2. The more I exercise the more I can eat! Let's just say, I exercise quite a bit.

3. I am forced to make better food choices so that when I want to splurge, I can.

4. I am taking advantage of my YMCA membership 5-6 times a week compared to 0 in six months.

5. Mya, our dog, is losing weight too!! This is due to more frequent and longer walks & runs. We found the bark park this way. We have a trail that goes through our town and while running one day we found a park for dogs to hang out.

6. I now have leg and arm muscles.

7. I will feel more confident in my bathing suit around family and friends.

8. I have made great bonds with my workout buddies at work.

9. We started The Biggest Loser at work this past week and I am already on a routine and that I know I can stick to and benefit from.

10. I do not have to say NO to ANY foods.

11. This is something I can really see myself stick to for life.

12. I am becoming much more attractive for my husband. Of course, he will not admit that I was not already!! I like it that way though!!

13. When we get ready to have a baby, I will be in much better shape and I will know that this works. (please note, this will not be for a while) This way, after the baby comes, I can widdle back down to pre-baby weight!

If you want to see more about Weight Watchers go here. I have tried several diet approaches. Weight Watchers has been the most realistic and doable for me!! It is also the most weight I have ever lost too.
