Here I go again............

Here I go again on my own
Going down the only road I've ever known
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
But I've made up my mind
I ain't wastin' no more time


I'M GOING TO LOSE WEIGHT THIS TIME

SO. Here. I. GO. Again. *sigh*

Ok, so that's the words to some song that popped in my head as I was going to sleep last night...hahaha I added my own line though. I'm starting Weight Watchers today for the like the third time. I've also done every other diet known to man, well except for the grapefruit one. I just can't do grapefruit.

I just feel like I've been down this road SOOOO many times and hoping this time, this time I will be successful and STAY successful! I'm so tired of struggling with my weight and I'm SO tired of being fat!

I think the problem is is that I want a rockin' hot body! I just don't think I can ask God to help me when I want to lose weight for the wrong reasons. I need to do it for myself, my health, and my family.

Please say a little prayer for me today. (Pray that I don't have all my points gone by lunch time. Ha!)

I'll post about the puppy soon!!! We've had our hands full, that's for sure!

Quite understand about the whole weight thing. I lose and gain the same 20 every 2 years. I think this is my lose year...and as for the puppy, we are about crazy at our house with Crystals puppy.

Ok I am with you girl! After seeing the trip photos PLASTERED up on the entire wall of the church Sunday I was mortified!!!! To say the least. This has got to be the time I do it!!! I am sick and tired of being fat, hating what I look like in EVERYTHING I put on and refusing to buy ANYMORE clothes until I loose weight!! We need some kind of support system in place in our “ladies” that helps us all stay on track!!
You pray for me and I will pray for you! I am starting next week! For the 4th time! It does work if you stick to it. I lost about 30 lbs from Jan to April last year and now I have gained 35 back!!! SOOOOOOOO, you are not walking alone my sista!
My goal, 2 pant sizes before the ladies trip!
Love ya!

Oh, I'm SO with you on that same road. Again.

I just heard the coolest idea...my friend's church is doing their version of "Biggest Loser". It's $50 a person to join, and it's a weekly support group type thing where they talk about strategies for losing weight, etc. and get weighed, measured, etc. How they go about losing it is up to them...but the participant who loses the most weight/inches/bmi at the end of the year WINS the pot of $ that everyone pays to join. There's already $1000 in that pot, and my friend is PUMPED to try and win it.

I have faith in you. I know you can do it. Although, I think you are just fine the way you are. =)

I'll get your back in prayer too. I need help as well, but I did not make any promises to myself this year 'cause I always disappoint myself. I tried the little pedometer the other day and don't you know I would have had to walk 4 miles right before bedtime to get my steps in for the day...lol. Guess I best get steppin'.

I'm so with ya girl! I read your post this morning but didn't have time to comment, but I did pray for you! You know the video I told you about Wed night? I've done a little of it every day, but I can do about 10 minutes and that's it. IT totally kicks my rear! My stomach is so sore I don't WANT to eat! LOL!
