It All Starts With One Step....

....or in this case, one bite.

I've always struggled with my weight. I remember being a small child and feeling like I was fat. As I got older, the weight added up. All through high school I never weighed more than 175lbs. I don't know if that was because of my teenage metabolism, how active I was or the hard drugs I was doing (seriously...don't do drugs). Regardless, I never gained weight. Shortly after high school I met the man who would become my husband. We had totally different eating habits and I found myself adapting what I ate to be more consistent with what he ate. Next thing I knew, I was over 200lbs. Fast forward 8 years and I'm currently 277lbs. At 5'7", I don't look like I should weight that much but I do. That's where this comes in. I started Weight Watchers (WW) about 2 months ago and I've had some great success. I've lost almost 10lbs and I plan on dropping a lot more.

This blog sprang forth from Cas and I texting (like we always do) and the idea came around to start this food journal. On here we will log every meal eaten along with pictures and information on ingredients, serving sizes and even total WW points. If this thing takes off and becomes fairly popular then we'll entertain the idea of posting YouTube videos twice a week. We'll also share any ideas or tips we have on weight loss and just personal thoughts for the day. I know, personally, I'll eventually include a before, during and (hopefully) after pictures. I want to share my journey from fat to fit with the world.

Please.....be gentle.

I'm definitely on the support train! It's great to decide to take the initiative to lose weight, cause it's also a step into a healthy lifestyle too. :) I've been slowly going to the gym for the past few months, and just losing what little weight i have, it makes all the difference in the energy i have! Do as much as you can, cause i never thought it would be so hard to lose weight after a kid....I'm sure Cass knows with kids of her own :)

Good luck, I'm sure you two will do great!
