I started the day with an 8 am weigh-in at the doctors office. I learned that getting control of my weight will help me control my major complaints about my PCOS, AGAIN. I faced the scale, opened my eyes, and saw a big fat 302.8. Although this is below my highest weight ever, I am only six pounds shy. I was pleased to know that all of my blood work looked fantastic for someone who has been using the “life is too short” philosophy in regards to food. My cholesterol was good and my blood sugar checked out, (both were things that I was sure I had sabotaged).
So I faced my truths, both good and bad. I sat through the getting started portion of the Weight Watchers meeting, only this time with a friend/co-worker. I am even considering coming up with a way to make our weigh-ins a little more interesting. Friendly wager anyone?!?! I am hugely competitive, and I think that might just be what I need to keep me tuned in, well as long as I am CRUSHING her. Ok, maybe this is not such a good idea.
Either way, I look forward to being real with myself this time, and I do think it is possible.

I’m proud of you for facing your demons today! Hooray for good news about blood work and such. As for the friendly wager, how about setting mini-goals and rewards – First one to 10 lbs lost gets a pedicure with and from the other? That way you both get to “commune” together over nail polish and foot massages but there’s added incentive for you to be the victor! (no offense to your friend but I’m rooting for you!) I’m also glad you have a partner in this journey – I mean IRL… online support is huge but IRL is irreplaceable 🙂 Big Hugs to you darling 🙂 Can’t wait to follow you on this journey because I KNOW you will ROCK IT! ~ and just so you know, now I have that song in my head… and IT NEVER ENDS… Thanks 😉

I have to say you look great for your weight. That was not the most flattering picture I have seen of you! LOL I think you are beautiful! Reading your blog makes me want to put some effort into mine. You can see my before pics. http://lifeonthescales.blogspot.com/ I have lost about 25lb so far but have not been blogging it.
