Hey PJ - it's a long road, but a good one, so we're headed on it together, which makes it all the shorter, right?
Since we're doing intros, I'll do mine here as well.
I'm Elaine, 41 (soon to be 42 next month,) and have been with my fiance for 11 years now (it's a very lonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng engagement!
Mainly because it's so darned expensive to live in Massachusetts as a couple when you don't own property!) Anyhow, I've been doing WW this time around since October of 2003, when I said "you've done it before, you can do it again, but you need to get to meetings, girl!" Originally I had joined WW in the old days of the 123 program and lost over 70lbs. That was back in 1998, and I got cocky, thought I could do it on my own and save myself some money. Funny way your mind can play tricks and let you put blinders up to things you don't want to see. I knew I was gaining back, but kept on saying "I can lose it any time I want." Well, any time never game about until I gained back all I had lost and then some!
So this time I'm doing it a lot slower than I did the time before. Though I have gotten a jolt recently when I gave my best friend a membership for Christmas and she lost 60lbs while I was still piddling away. That was a big wake up call, and a lesson that the program only works when you work the program. So here I am, with new motivation and commitment to actually do the things that I haven't been (water and exercise were the two I was never good about.)
So here I am. How about the rest?
