Weight Watchers: The Beginning

Hi guys! What a crazy 4 years it has been. Ups and downs. Heartbreak, laughter and joy. But also an annoying amount of weight gain. I must have gained a good 40-50 pounds in the last 4 years, 30 of it was last year when my medication changed. With everything going on, weight loss seemed low on the list of things to do. And yes I have tried 3 diets but after an initial loss of 5-10 pounds I seemed to always plateau. Maybe because of the lack of exercise (darn you, body!) or maybe because of "who knows what" but I always got discouraged and was disappointed so started comfort eating again. Let's be honest. Life is rough enough without losing something you enjoy like that bowl of pasta and KW homemade cookie.

But it's time folks. I am starting Weight Watchers with my mum and therapist's encouragement. I am going to start post my menus and recipes and food pictures. Hopefully these will be useful for someone out there and if you have any suggested recipes please share!! Good luck to all who are driven to get healthier. x
