WEIGHT WATCHER WEIGH IN: :..."And The Beat Goes On!"


Doing Weight Watchers is a HUGE lifestyle change for me.

I joined Weight Watchers for several reasons...take off some pounds, have time with Amy every Thursday while we work on a mutual goal, and work on a healthy lifestyle. Yet while I have been to Weight Watchers in the past, I have never DONE the program with the determination and hard work that I am putting into it now!

I continue to attend every meeting. I continue to track all of the food that I am eating and add up my points. I continue to exercise at least three or four times a week (walking vigorously, running up stairs, lifting weights). I continue to drink large amounts of water every day.

And the program works if you really do it!

This week...drum roll please...I lost 3.2 pounds for a total loss of 19.8 pounds!!!

Sunny and Cher used to sing the song "And The Beat Goes On"...meaning that this adventure is ongoing! Mine is! I am getting healthy! I am not stopping! I feel like a million bucks!

I am SO grateful that God is right beside me in this journey. Every day I thank Him for the courage to do this and I want to live in a way that I honor the temple (my body) that He so generously gave me!

Stay tuned...next week you'll see less of me!

God Bless! Love and hugs to all who read this! Linda

I am so proud of you for the initial reward of a smaller, healthier body... but mostly for the long term reward that comes with that, a longer life to spend with your family who adores you! With every pound you lose, you are giving the gift of time to yourself and your family. I have thought, prayed, and wished for the time that your heart and mind would wrap around this challenge with conviction, hard work, and creativity. I feel so blessed!

What an amazing accomplishment. I know that this "weight loss thing" is harder than it looks. It isn't like quitting alcohol or smoking... you have to eat food... you have to make healthy choices with the food that you eat. It is a tough thing to do! You are doing it though.. your hard work is paying off. I love you and am so proud of you!

Love, me

Way to go Linda! You are doing such an awesome job and I look forward to seeing less of you!

Amy is right - it's a very hard addiction to get away from because our bodies require food - it's up to us to decide what and how much we are going to eat.
