Soooo I was supposed to get my act together yesterday, however that didn't happen.  So here I am at work today and I see this. I think this is a great wake up call for me.

New to the Game

That should really be titled new to the blogging game, however not new to the wonderful world of weight loss.  I am starting this blog to give me an outlet to share my hopes, dreams, successes, failures and everything in between during my journey to a stronger, healthier me.  I've spent just about my whole life being the chubby girl who was always hiding behind the baggy shirt and I refuse to be that anymore. 

Just over a year ago I started down my path of change by going to a Weight Watchers meeting, and let me tell you this was not the first time I'd set foot into one of those things.  However this time I was determined to make it a permanent change not just a quick fix.  My reasons for starting were very surface at the time, I was going to be a Matron of Honor in a wedding, but as time passed and pounds fell off my reason for being there changed.  I saw who I was becoming and I really liked it, as did my doctor, my family and people around me. 

Over this past year I have lost 62 pounds and it always seems to be an uphill battle, but one I'm not going to back down to.  I'm learning to love myself, my lifestyle and even exercise.  In fact I was even teased just last night during my weekly Weight Watchers meeting about the number of 5k's that I've done recently.  :) 

So if you are reading this then I assume you may be following me through my journey through food challenges and success.  Thank You.
