    Default I should be ashamed to brag again after 2008

    I posted here some pictures of my 47 lbs lost in 2008, before and after pictures. I thought sure I was ready to keep it off this time, but gained it back over 2009-2011 all except about 11 lbs that I lost.

    So here I go again, but this time I know it has to be for good. I know I have to give up frivolous indulging. I am 64 and can't keep going through this over and over. I went back to WW on 1/5/2012.

    Here I am at Christmas time:


    DH took this one this morning, now with 17 1/2 lbs off:


    He must have moved the camera, he blurred my face. Anyway, I got my 10% key ring last week and feeling lots better. I have 20 more to go to get back to goal but want to lose more because that is a goal I set too high and my dr. agrees. I am 5'1".
    Oh! I even decided to cover the gray which I had let grow out after a very hard move from FL to TN. Lots of reno work both places and the huge move after being in the same house/state for 30 yrs.

    Bonnie~good job getting back in the saddle again. Look at the difference losing 10% makes. Keep up the hard work, it's so worth it.

    Just noticed more comments here! Thanks for all of the nice compliments. I am up to 24.5 lbs now and I have 13 more to go till goal. I do plan to lose closer to my original goal (before WW raised the goals we could have) before I'm done, though.

    Dgjp, your pictures show the dramatic difference that your wt loss has made! Keep it up!

    Yes Bonnie, you will have to post some pics when you get to goal. Pictures are always so motivating. I wish more people would post before and after pictures.

    Updated pic of wt loss as of June 21, 2012....still plugging away.
    Got my 25 lb award last week, now 26 lbs, 11 1/2 to goal and need to go lower this time. Not for a cushion (those can be dangerous) but for my health. We'll see.
    Me on the right with DD who just visited with us. I am learning so much more this time than I knew even as a group leader for years in WW. The 0 pts fruit and of course the veggies has been a tremendous help to me this time around. My addiction to sweets has been broken. Still love them, but don't crave them as I always have before. The fruit is so satisfying. Still not exercising much, but I am more active because I don't hurt as much.

    Wishing us all success for a "Lifetime"!

    Thanks, Trudie and Dottie! I will keep on and not look back. It's too much fun being thin to turn back.

    Update here: I got back to goal the end of August and have just finished re-training to be a WW group leader here in our new state. I was a leader for 12 years and almost 12 years ago I quit. Now we are settled in our new state where we have worked so hard to move and I am doing this again. So here is an updated picture at goal. I am going to lose a little more and might lower my goal eventually.


    In my 60's and life is good!
