Anyone who knows me knows that I have struggled with my weight pretty much my entire life. I went on Weight Watchers for the first time in middle school. Back then Weight Watchers was pretty horrible. You had to eat fish 5x per week- YUCK. It was fairly tortuous but I would lose the weight and then gain it back, usually within a few months to a year. I think I have been on WW at least 15 times since and never once did I make it to my goal weight. My mom on the other hand is a WW success story. She lost 35 lbs and kept it off until the day she passed away last year almost 30 years later.
I basically stopped taking care of myself. I didn’t watch what I ate and didn’t exercise enough. So after feeling so uncomfortable in my body in August, I went on Ideal Protein. It has been the most intense weight loss program I have ever been on. Even worse than WW in the 70’s. But I have to tell you it works. I am down almost 20 lbs since and feel so much better. I still would like to lose another 10-15lbs (so I have some room to play with) but it is getting much harder to stay motivated. I think I have lost my weight loss mojo. Its becoming a real struggle. I’m not sure what changed but I need to get it together. In the meantime, I thought I would share the success I’ve had so far.
I will keep you update on my progress. In the meantime, pray for me (just kidding).
