heytherepandabear: (Weight Loss ♦ 2 Apples & measuring tape)
So, for those of you who don't know, my attempt at weight loss back in January failed at all costs. I was going through a really stressful time in my life, so it just did not work out. Since then, I've moved to a different state, landed an amazing job, and started Weight Watchers. The thing is... This time is different.

One afternoon in April, I was wandering around a shopping area near my new job and saw a Weight Watchers building. I'm not sure what happened but something in my head definitely clicked. You know when you join weight loss programs or start a diet only half-heartedly? Admit, we've all done it.

I've never really had the desire or motivation to lose weight -- it's always just been something I know that I've needed to do. I'm 23 years old, 5'0" and my starting weight was 242lbs. This is the point in my life where my mind isn't consumed by a million different obligations due to constant school work and outside actives. I can finally dedicate my time to focusing on Weight Watchers.

And that's where I'm at now. In 4 weeks I've lost 13.6lbs -- that's an average of 3.4lbs lost every week! I go for my 4th weigh-in of my fifth week tomorrow. From now on, I plan to keep this blog public. I'll post foods that I discover that work for me on Weight Watchers. I'll write stories of my journey for weight loss. I'll even keep you in the loop of how this affects my body-image/self-esteem.

Feel free to read... or not. It's up to you! ♥
