When we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness -- and call it love -- true love. - Robert Fulghum

Weighting In

It's taken me 3 weeks to get up the nerve to write this post, but I needed to do it. And if it helps someone else who is dealing with the same issues, even better!

As I looked at the 2 family wedding invitations in my hands and the pictures I just posted on Facebook of my daughter and I and a picture from my BIL's wedding that I was in last year,  I knew that something had to give.

Like most wedding bound females, I want to look good in the pictures next year, but I also want to be able to keep up with kiddo...and that whole on my feet for 12 plus hours on a wedding days!

So. hi ho, hi ho, it's back to Weight Watchers I go. I know how much I need to loose and am going to do it healthy. No crash diets, not pills. Just eating right and exercise (I go to the gym 3 day a week right now.) I lost 60lbs before I had kiddo. I know I can do it, I just need accountability.

And as I want extra accountability, I will be posting after weigh in every Monday. Good, bad or even, I'm going to share. I have 105lbs to lose and I will, because I plan on being hotter at 40 then I was at 20!

So without further adieu...

Week 1: -7.2 (First week you always lose a bunch)
Week 2: -.6 (Total down 7.8)
Week 3: -3.2 (Total down 11) And I was on a 3 day vacation this weekend!


  1. I'm with you girl - anything you need in terms of support or a good kick you know where, I'm there. Will also try to be inspired by you (but I'm gonna focus this time on helping you...that way we'll get one of us successful first)!

  2. You are amazing. I am so proud of you for blogging about it and making yourself accountable. You rock Fran! We are here to cheer you on too!

  3. My wife's family joined together and I organized a "family weight loss challenge". Together we're working to lose weight.

    Good luck + keep up with the accountability. It helps! We'll be watching you! ;-)
