So far my total loss is 13.8 pounds. Earlier this week I was at the gym and I was using a 6lb medicine ball as part of my workout and it I was thinking how heavy that ball was. It hit me that I have lost more than 2 of those balls! It really helps put things in perspective when you pick something up and realize how much weight we are carrying around.
My goal for this coming week is to lose at least 1.2 so I can reach my first 15 lb loss! It will be hard because of Halloween - but I know that I can do it! While eating a piece of candy would make me happy for a minute - it's not worth not reaching my overall goal.
Halloween is the first official food holiday of the season and I feel that if I can get through this first hurdle I will have the confidence to get over the next too!
Wish me luck and come back next week to see how I did!

In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness month (October), Mary Kay® premiered documentaries to put a national spotlight on the cause. Women nationwide, alongside female celebrities Maria Menounos ("Extra"), JoAnna Garcia Swisher ("Better with You") and Alexa Vega ("Spy Kids"), joined forces through the Mary Kay Inspiring Stories program to unite their voices to make a difference.
We are banding together on October 19th and hope that on that day you will help us support the cause and bring attention to the issue of domestic violence by watching the below Give Joy documentary short narrated by Alexa Vega. With each view we can change the future of domestic violence today.

I have struggled with my weight for pretty much my entire adult life... and probably most of my teenage years... about 3 years ago my husband started a new job and fitness was really pushed there. I felt like he was going to be all hot and fit (He is anyway) and I didn't want to be the fat girl with the skinny man.
I started working out HARD! I lost about 15 pounds, it felt good although no where near as much as I needed to loose. I plateaued, I got discouraged, I kind of gave up. I decided that I just was going to have to be happy being overweight. I gained back that 15 lbs & more... I wasn't happy...
I have felt like I am going crazy! Sometimes depressed & full of anger! I finally decided that I needed to do something. After a breakdown I decided that I would take advantage of an offer my dad had made a while back. I joined Weight Watchers. That was 5 weeks ago. It's been hard. I have learned so much about myself. I think I may even be a little happier now. I will succeed at this! I need to for myself, my husband and my kids!
After 4 weigh ins, I am happy to say that I have lost 11 lbs! I have about 75 more pounds to go before I am at "goal".
I hope you all we be here with me as I plan on sharing my successes and my failures. Maybe I can help you a little bit too! It might be a wild ride!
I will be posting about my Weight Watchers journey here and also as a guest blogger on my friend Whit's WW Blog!
