Howdy :)

Amber, the sweetie that we all know and love, has invited me to blog with her during our WW journey together. I'm a little new at blogging, so please bear with me.

I pretty much feel the same way as Amber does about weight loss. Being healthy is most important. Along with the esteem you get from being comfortable with how your body looks.
It's really hard when you look in the mirror, and realize that... you don't recognize the body you're in anymore. I've had an especially hard time with that lately.

I've never been what you would call "thin" or "skinney". But, I've always been healthy. I've somehow managed to let that slip away from me. So, it's up to me to get this body back to a familiar shape. Also, to improve my health!

I really believe that Amber and I can whoop some booty at this, and I thank her bunches, and bunches for her support, and motivation. It's gonna be a challenging road, but it comes with a huge payoff.

It's been suggested to me that I list 3 goals I'd like to accomplish during the next 6 months:

1. I need to accept the fact that my body is not like "everyone elses". REALLY accept that.
2. I control what I put in my mouth/body. I need have "healthier" choices become second nature to me.
3. I also need 20 minutes of daily exercise to become a habit. Even if it's just a walk.

Im planning on joining WW on the first of this month. It's a new thing for me... "dieting".
But, I got myself in this mess - it's up to me to get myself out! :)

YAY for you, too, Roni!
WW is a way of life for me, and I shared my love for it with Amber in a PM at CC.
One word of advice for you - and hopefully you'll understand that this is coming in the most supportive way - NEVER think of WW as a diet!! Seriously - it's a whole new way of life and eating and making good choices. It really has just become how I eat - whether I'm "on program" or not. If you think of it as a lifestyle and not a "diet," it becomes easier to succeed!!

I'll be here cheering you on!!!!
