Hi! A little bit about me…
33 34 35 40 year old theatre artist/TV professional living in gorgeous Canada and this is my weight loss blog. I have been overweight my entire life and about 10-12 years ago I managed, through hard work and Weight Watchers, to lose 52lbs over 8 months with a final weight of 176.6lbs. Sadly I then moved away to pursue a graduate degree and the weight crept back on and over 2 and a half years I gained a whopping 75 pounds!!
Well I can’t just sit back and let this continue so I’m back on track with a goal to lose the weight one last time.
As of July 31st, 2010 I am 5’4 and weigh 244lbs. That’s a BMI of 41.9! Okay. So clearly I need to get fit – it’s not going to get any easier to lose the weight so why not start now?
For my height my ideal weight is between 117-146 pounds. I have chosen
145lbs 160lbs as my final goal weight, rather randomly I must say. I will re-evaluate this number as I get closer to goal.
To be upfront I have chosen to lose weight through Weight Watchers. This is not an ad for them or in any way affiliated with them, but I wanted to be upfront about my process. Weight Watchers really worked well for me last time and helps keep me accountable. Some of my challenges are portion size and recognizing when I’m full and I find that WW helps me with my challenges.
At the same time I’ve decided to start this blog. Now, I’ve never blogged before so please do bear with me! I hope that this blog will keep me accountable and help me track my journey. If you should find yourself stumbling upon this blog please do be kind and leave a comment. I think support and sharing is critical for healthy weight loss.
Off I go!
