"25 Pounds"

So I have decided to let you all into a piece of my life.. weight loss. Back in January of 2011, I started weight watchers and lost 12lbs in a few months. I know some people bash WW, but it worked well for me. I ate what I wanted when I wanted, just made sure to watch my portions. It always helped that I ate pretty well to begin with. I love fruits and veggies and barely ate fried foods. Beef was also something I ate every once in a while.

I was doing very well until i started traveling for work again and fell off. I did not fall back completely however, but I have gained 2 lbs back (not TOO bad). With that said, I am now 175lbs.

Some of you say that isn't bad, but for a woman my height (5'5), it is and I AM considered overweight. However, I am more concerned about my health. The fact that I have bronchial asthma and bad knees and losing weight has made both better, tells me that losing weight IS the answer for me.

My max weight is 180lbs. What do I mean by that? Well a DEAR friend of mine told me that if I can weigh it at ANY point in the day, then it counts. But, I want it on record, my weight when I wake up in the morning is 175 lol.

I named this category "25 Pounds" to represent the 25 pounds I plan to lose, making my goal 150lbs. I am not going to put a time limit on it as long as I am losing the weight 1 pound at a time. I also named it that to be funny and mock the movie "12 Pounds" lol.

I am going to keep you all posted on my goal in hopes you all can help cheer me on to my goal! Only one rule, NO HATERS! I don't have time for all that (bbm eye roll).


  1. Yes you can do it!!! I love this! And I wish I had the courage to include readers in my weight loss goals but i will NOT tell anymore my weight lol. So that wont work lol. But i commend u on this and keep up the good work!

  2. LOL! Girl I know. I am quick to tell my weight to people, I don't LIKE it, but it's not something I find embarrassing. I figure how I LOOK in the mirror is more telling than a number so I don't care. When I was 185 people didn't believe me, said I didn't LOOK it.
