In the beginning.......

Hi there!  Welcome to my journey to less fat.....hoping to continue on to downright skinny.  I am a thirty-one year wife/mom/teacher and have become a whole lot more woman that I ever wanted to be.  I promised myself that I would be totally and brutally honest in my journey.  I need accountability and putting myself in a blog and knowing it would be humilitating to not post a weight loss I am ready to go.  I am tipping the scale at a very embarrassing 217 pounds.  My goal weight is 120-130.   That is at 87-97lb weight loss.  Wow......a bit overwhelming.  How do you eat an elephant??  One bite at a time.  For this reason, I have set smaller goals.  I want to lose 15 pounds by Spring Break, that is 7 weeks away and very doable.  I want to fit my increasingly smaller behind in a size 14 by our vacation at the beginning of June. 
I believe I can do this for one reason.  I am sick.  I am sick of wearing clothes that resemble draperies.  I am sick of believing that what I need when I am sad is Reeses and Puffy Cheetos.  I am sick of putting food on the table that will make my family fat.  I am sick of looking in the mirror and wondering who the hell is looking back at me.  I am sick of feeling gross and fat.

I have joined a Weight Watchers group and have high hopes.  There is accountability and it basically trains you on portion control and healthy food choices.  The most important thing in any weight loss plan for me is that it does not highly restrict or eliminate foods.  You have a certain number of points and you can eat what you want you just have to track it.   

I am very excited and hope I don't regret my decision to blog my journey.
