Battle the Bulge

I'm joining a weight loss challenge. Here is my earlier post on the subject. Here is my before picture. I have lost almost 20 lbs so far. I'll let you know the total after I weigh today at Weight Watchers.
My goals:
  • To get down to my "normal for me" weight of 128.
  • To be able to wear the clothes in the my closet.
  • To lower my blood pressure.
  • To be healthy for my next pregnancy.
My goals this week:
  • Try to stay within my points, as much as I can, on vacation, by eating a healthy breakfast and lunch while enjoying meals at restaurants.
  • To drink water at all meals except supper out.
  • To move, by swimming and walking.
If I lose any weight I'll be seriously glad, but I'm not expecting that from vacation.
Are you where you want to be? Could you stand to walk more, eat less, be more healthy? Join us. Even if you don't have a blog you can post your goals in my comments section and we'll help each other stay accountable. Go here to join others doing the challenge.

Yay for you on your progress so far! I've done Weight Watchers before, and I had success with it - until I got pregnant with child #3. ;)

This time, I'm kind of doing it from home. No room in the budget for WW meetings. Boo.

I think my biggest need though, is EXERCISE. Yup. That's what I need.
Keep up the good work! Thanks for joining in with me. :)
