I'm kinda tired tonight, so this will be a short post.  Last week I wrote about how I gave up soda and how I needed another goal.  Well, yesterday I joined Weight Watchers.  I had a doctor's appointment on Tuesday and was told that I am obese.  Not a nice thing to hear.  I basically decided to join on Wednesday and found a meeting in town on Thursday.  The nice thing was I ran into a woman that used to work at my LYS.  It was good to see a familiar face.  

I must admit that I don't like that I have to do this, but I really don't know what else is going to work for me.  It's hard, but I can do it.  The hardest part is that I am so impatient I want to see results RIGHT NOW!  Patrick has offered to surprise me with a (non-food) treat after every ten pounds lost.  Hopefully that will help!

Wish me luck!

About 2 1/2 years ago I had a doctor tell me that my ankle swelling was probably because of the "extra" weight I was carrying. He suggested I wear support hose to keep the ankle swelling down. I was only 32 at the time! So the next day I joined WW and I lost 70 lbs in 8 months! I know that if I did it ANYONE can do you it. I send good vibes your way. There is a ravelry group for WW you should check out. GOOD LUCK TO YOU!!!!!
