Just Like Oprah!

Well minus the money, homes, personal chefs etc etc, oh yes and I'm white!
I'm referring to yo yo weight gain/loss.

I found myself in a desperate attempt to dress my cute "tom boy" in some clothes we both liked. I figured the "rock star" look, with black and some sparkle with boots etc might work for her when she observantly pointed out, as only a loving 7 year old can, that her jeans were very skinny. I replied, "I know, they are supposed to be, just like Mummy's" at which point she shares, yours aren't skinny!

So here I am again looking at my weight gain and wondering how and why I get here every other year or so. I fluctuate 10lbs but it effects me tremendously.
I am bravely sharing my pics for all you saying "puuleeeese"






I feel very positive about this weight watcher program since my sister in law lost my entire body weight on it.

I feel lucky that my starting weight is still within my "healthy" range and if I lost 10% of my body weight (WW recommended first goal)I would be at my High school, Wedding,and ideal weight. The fact is, I can't fit in my clothes, I hate shopping, I feel disgusting and I'm a cow to be around with all this negative vibe.
So wish me luck people, I have a serious addiction to all things salty.


  1. Mrs. Diet Coke and Zingers did a link on her blog to send people to your blog. You are off to a great start. Look at Julias!! WOW!!!! She looks awesome!! You can do it too, one day at a time!

  2. Hey there! I'm a lifelong yo-yoer too! I just got the Beck Diet Solution books and they are really, really insightful and helpful. My blog (not listed in my profile) is, and I started a new one to follow along on the Beck Diet books:

    Good luck to you!! You can do this! We can do this!

  5. Welcome to the blog world. I'm new too! I'm thinking this accountability thing is going to help a lot. Good luck!

  6. 10%? You can do it! Blogging is another fun way to go about it, too! Post LOTS of pics so everyone can watch you shrink & then you're less likely to "go back" to where you started.
