Welcome graphic

I began my weight loss journey on March 20th 2002 when I joined Weight Watchers.  I have assembled some pictures that show my transformation.  My goal is to inspire people on their own weight loss journey.

I started to think about losing weight in May 2000 when I went white water-rafting and ripped the wetsuit.  I was very embarrassed, I could not believe that I could not fit in their largest wetsuit.  This incident got me thinking that I needed to lose weight, but did not do anything until 2002 when my mom said she was going to join Weight Watchers.

On March 20th 2002, I joined Weight Watchers and could not believe I weighed 254 lbs.  I knew I could not focus on how much weight I had to lose, even Weight Watchers goal of losing 10% was too much so I cut it to 5%.  When I reached a 5% goal, I would reward myself with a non-food item.  Using this easier to obtain approach has kept me motivated on this life-changing journey.

I have Finally made my Weight Watchers Goal on January 4th 2005.  I have lost a total of 119.6 lbs.  I am still planning on losing  7-15 more pounds.  After geting to my personal goal and maintaining for awhile I plan to look into being a leader at Weight Watchers.

I have to admit I have not keep off all my weight.  I had a really tough 2005 and half of 2006 where my world just seem to turn upside down.  Well I went of my program and went back to old habits.  So I am now in the process of re-losing the weight and getting back to goal.  I am still doing Weight Watchers and I am also using the Beck Diet Solutions workbook to help with some of my sabatoging thoughts and to get a better grip on my emotions and mind to help me get back to goal and to stay there this time through all of life's ups and downs.
