Start Making Changes

My other blog is called Stop and Smell the Chocolates, but when I stop and smell the chocolates, I grab the box and run off with it. Is that a problem?

I am determined that now is the time to permanently make some healthy lifestyle changes before I get any older. I'm overweight but still medically healthy...for now.

I have had success in the past with Weight Watchers, so that's the easiest thing for me to go back to. I rejoined yesterday! I like the focus on: portion control; eating only until satisfied; and adding in fruits/veggies, water, some dairy, healthy fats, and exercise. It's a program that can be tailored to your own life and doesn't have to be restrictive. I get good tips and encouragement from the meetings, and the weigh-ins help keep me accountable.

I'm at my highest weight I've ever been, which is depressing and uncomfortable. I am looking forward to change for the better! Since I just started in the world of blogging, I thought this would be a great way to encourage myself and keep me more accountable. I'm not going to give you the number that the scale said yesterday, but I will let you know each week what change took place. I plan to post 2-3 times a week with my progress, successes or failures, ideas, and healthy recipes.

I hope you'll join me so we can encourage each other and share tips, ideas and recipes!
