Wow....where to begin?!?!?! I am so, so happy that I was able to keep my weight under my goal and earned my Lifetime status with Weight Watchers today. I never imagined that I had it in me to stick with this, and I'm proud of myself for not giving up.
January 10, 2011 is the date when I decided to take that big step towards changing my life - that was the first Weight Watchers meeting I attended. It took a lot for me to make that decision, and while I wish I had joined a long time ago I have to believe there was a reason for starting when I did. If I had started earlier I might not have had the best leader imaginable. Laura really knows how so many of us think and feel when battling our weight. She's there to praise us, and to pick us up when we stumble. When I had to switch meeting days so I could join the Dick Pond Walk2Run group, the first thing I did was see which meetings Laura led so I could go to one of those. I am so thankful for everything she's done to help me.
And I can't forget to thank all of my friends and family that have put up with me this past year :). I know this has kind of consumed me, but never once has anyone told me to get over it already. I promise that I'll settle down....eventually!
