I began my weight loss journey on March 20th 2002 when I joined Weight Watchers. I have assembled some pictures that show my transformation. My goal is to inspire people on their own weight loss journey. I started to think about losing weight in May 2000 when I wentwater-rafting and ripped the wetsuit. I was very embarrassed, I could not believe that I could not fit in their largest wetsuit. This incident got me thinking that I needed to lose weight, but did not do anything until 2002 when mysaid she was going to join Weight Watchers. On March 20th 2002, I joined Weight Watchers and could not believe I weighed 254 lbs. I knew I could not focus on how much weight I had to lose, even Weight Watchers goal of losing 10% was too much so I cut it to 5%. When I reached a 5% goal, I would reward myself with a non-food item. Using this easier to obtain approach has kept me motivated on this life-changing journey. I have Finally made my Weight Watchers Goal on January 4th 2005. I have lost a total of 119.6 lbs. I am still planning on losing 7-15 more pounds. After geting to my personal goal and maintaining for awhile I plan to look into being a leader at Weight Watchers. I have to admit I have not keep off all my weight. I had a really tough 2005 and half of 2006 where my world just seem to turn upside down. Well I went of my program and went back to old habits. So I am now in the process of re-losing the weight and getting back to goal. I am still doing Weight Watchers and I am also using the Beck Diet Solutions workbook to help with some of my sabatoging thoughts and to get a better grip on my emotions and mind to help me get back to goal and to stay there this time through all of life's ups and downs. This is a year before I joined Weight Watchers. I weighed around 254 lbs I am in a similar pose and outfit to the May 15th 2001 picture.
