Scale is Moving Down!!!


Hi everyone. Just wanted to share that I got on the scale this morning and lost 2 pounds! So happy to see that scale moving down. I'm one pound away from the weight I was when I had my first child. Lets see....that was 26 years ago. WOW. After I had my daughter the weight just kept going up. Should have done something about it years ago. Had I only known about Weight Watchers I would have. I've been on many diets during the last 26 years nothing worked. Take it from me....if you really want to lose weight the only sure way is to take in fewer calories than your burning. Diet and Exercise is the way to go.
I thought you would get a kick out of this pic of me. This dress is from the 80's. Lord only knows why I kept it. I use to call it my Mae West dress. I'm pretty darn curvy in it. LOL Anyway I can fit into it again. I'm tickled about that. Even though the dress is way out of style, and no way would I wear it out in public. Enjoy. Please feel free to comment on this pic love to hear your thoughts.

Karen you are doing so good with your diet. As I am a fairly new reader I do not know how much you have lost toal but I can see the difference just in this pix and the one of you at your desk here. I too am trying to lose some weight and have managed to get off about 25 pounds over the last few months. However, I have a lot more to go.
