It's been almost 8 months, so I thought I would share;

Post by Malletmusic17 on Wed Jul 20, 2011 8:16 pm

no, I'm not pregnant...I feel like someone was thinking that.

but, I joined Weight Watchers January 2nd, 2011. sort of a new years resolution that I would finally stick to.

well, it's been almost 8 months. and I went to the allergist today, where I was weighed.

I have lost 40lbs since january Smile

I still have about 90lbs to loose. (I started at 267 and I am now 227, I was/am a fat child haha) but I am only 27 pounds from, what we call on the WW forums, "One"derland.

which is very exciting for me. I gained all this weight because of the medication I took after my accident. I have not been under 200lbs since maybe 8th grade.

Good. I have a lot of before pictures, but usually just my face, so you can't really tell.

Has it gotten harder as time goes on? It seems like in the beginning, you lose a lot of weight, but it slows down after awhile. Maybe that's just me. I haven't been doing as well because I like to reward myself for losing weight with cake and stuff. LOL.

ehh, I mean kind of. I lost 11lbs the first week and now I average maybe 1-2. it's been consistent though Smile

hehe..I do that too. Birthday Cake does not count, nor does cake for celebration ^_^

Congrats! What a great start, 40 pounds is a big accomplishment, and I wish u the best on the rest of the weight coming off easily. If you don't mind me asking, what accident?

And going off what Rex said, ZUMBA Fitness is a good workout! its kinda dancish, u dont need to know how to dance to do it though, its all simple movements. and its a ton of fun!

I'm up to almost 45 so woohoo! haha. it's hard, especially now that I work in Fast Food.

I fell off a horse in 5th grade and I've had 14 surgeries (it was an open break so it got severely infected) and I was basically a guienna pig for medication to kill the bacteria. I still have problems with it almost 8 years later Razz

I HATE ZUMBA haha I had the Wii game and I SUCkED!! haha Smile

How is working in fast food going, Steph? I might have to try it until I find something better. Kind of dreading it, but I really want to move out of this hell hole before winter.

it's okay for the most part. I work 9 hours and 45 minutes today, and that brings me to a total of almost 40 hours within the last week...but I cut back my hours to 25 a week starting next week! thank god because right now I feel like crap.
