Let's make it offical

So I haven't made an official announcement...but starting Aug 1st I'll be doing Weight Watchers. I figure if I announce it to the internet world I have no choice but to be held accountable. I need to do something...I wasn't thrilled with my weight before I got pregnant and it's certainly not going to come off with the way I've been eating. I'm not doing the meetings, at least not to start, I am going to do the online program.

I go for my 6 week check up on Thursday and will find out exactly what I weigh (scary thought) and then Friday...game on! I'll try to post weekly updates with my progress, if for no other reason then to have someone to answer to.

Of course I am going to have lunch at the most unhealthy place on Friday afternoon. No, not Chipotle...Mike's Place. Yea, not exactly the best place to go on day one...but hey, I like a challenge!

Next step...get my chubby ass to the gym. I am work out stupid, seriously. I don't have a clue how to use the machines and frankly, they scare me. I'm pretty sure I'll be the girl that falls off the treadmill or gets her shoe lace stuck in the stair master.

Go head, stop laughing...since I'm sure you just envisioned me flat on my face in the middle of the gym.

Ha so I wasn't supposed to laugh at that?? ;)

You will be just fine. I know you can do it!

You so painted the pretty picture of you flying off of the tredmill. Thank you for a good laugh!

You are going to do great. I'm seriously thinking of joining also. Ask for a demo tour of the Y. They should show you how to use the equipment. Good luck, we're going to be cracking the whip!

thanks for stopping by my blog!

good luck on w/ weight watchers. I signed up for it this winter and only went to two meetings (My gym was hosting them!) I was the smallest person in the meetings (at a size 14!), but I really did not enjoy them, so I took the meal plans and piont counters home and never went back. I'm still a size 14, but I recently started running, so maybe that will help!

Good luck and thanks again for stopping by!
