I know it has been like forever since I last updated this. But, here I am giving you all the updates I am sure you have been waiting for. I might not have been keeping you all updated but I have been still plugging away day by day pound by pound. Trying to get to my ultimate goal of losing a total of 200 pounds. From start to finish. Right now I have lost 114 pounds through weight watchers and a total of 126 pounds since May 2008.
I really enjoy seeing anybody and everybody that hasn't seen me in a while. They are always amazed how much I have shrunk since the last time they saw me.
This past weekend I bought new scrub pants. Which I have needed to buy for some time now. But, have just waited. I started out wearing a 5X, 3X, and now XL. I have been either in the past 12 years in dental assisting school or working my full time job. I have never been able to wear an XL in scrub pants:). I have also noticed that I am getting to the point depending on the clothing style the plus size clothes are getting to be to big.
I have decided to quit going to weight watchers at this time. I have learned the knowledge. I still get the weight watcher emails. I feel that I will be able to continue and succeed. Without going to the meetings. I know for a fact if I start to go down the wrong path again. April my old water aerobics instructor, or Mike my old trainer will be able to help me get back on the right path.
Besides working out at the gym I have also enjoyed playing the Nintendo WII. I just recently bought the Biggest Loser Video game. Along with the Sketcher shape up shoes. They feel really weird at first. But once you get used to them they are really comfortable. When you walk around in them it feels like you are walking on a rocking horse.
