Taking Control of my Weight!

I Joined Weight Watchers.
I have had it just about up to here with my eating habits...
You know how most people gain weight when they are stressed? Well I usually lose when I am stressed and gain when I am perfectly happy.... Lately I have been eating every two hours in an attempt to speed up my metabolism, and it does seem to be
working very very slowly, but it's not enough. I need to be more mindful of what I eat.
So the need for balance is definitely there, plus I am a latte' addict, and I LOVE chips, cheese and chocolate...
I decided, it is time to sign up and to ATTEND the weekly meetings.

I will post some before pics, and keep a log of my progress.
I am an active person. But I am indulgant. I eat what I want when I want it. No holds barred. I just love food and I can still
LOVE food.
This morning I had 1/2 of a toasted cheese croissant, and a cup of whole milk coffee and have only used 3 of the 23 points I am alloted for the day. AND I get 35 flex points to use in the week, however I want to use them!

The trick here, I believe is attending the meetings having some accountability
(cause Lord knows I will eat when and whatever I want) . But with the meetings, you are sharing the path with others
who have the same goal, and it's soo helpful and inspiring to
have that support and dialogue for motivation.

Wish me luck, better yet, JOIN ME!
Right now the eTools are free for a 7 day trial and man it is handy!

Thats me in the middle in black. This photo was taken in August! I will post others as time goes on.
