On A Journey
My husband and I started doing Weight Watchers this year (in January) and we are aspiring to make it a year-long (or 5-year long) commitment--however long it takes to get the weight OFF. I've gained it from having 3 babies in 3/12 years, and John gained it from sitting behind a computer all day and eating out too much while we lived in Texas. Think authentic Mexican every other day, alternating with Quizno's and Pizza Hut. That'll do you some heavy weight gain!
We've even started a weight-loss blog to track our progress (www.nomorefries.blogspot.com). So far, John has lost 30 lbs!! (if I weren't in love with him, I'd have to hate him). I have lost about 11 lbs. Don't you just hate men's metabolic level? I mean, we're doing EXACTLY the same thing! Argh!
Anyways, I came across this picture of me when I was pregnant with Emma. I think I was about 8 months along. Good thing God gave me a sense of humor, because this is SAD!! I think it's a good "before" picture. What do you think?
