I am still 6lbs away from goal however. But I will get there!!!
I remember clearly the day I decided to lose weight. I was in the car with my boyfriend and our 3 month old daughter on the way home from his parents' house and I said "Dang babe...I am fat...I need to do something about this. I'm not going to raise Elliana up with these habits of mine." and he said "There is nothing to it but to do it". On that very car ride home we decided that starting the next day we were going to start losing weight together and whoever lost the most each week would get a massage from the other person (That didn't last long once I started losing the most EVERY week! LOL!) I knew how to lose weight since I had lost a good amount in high school (That I had only gained back) so I started out by just cutting my portions and making healthier choices. After a week of doing it on my own, I knew what had to be done. I knew I needed Weight Watchers. I knew because I have seen it work.

The very next week I joined Weight Watchers and I have never looked back.

What once seemed like such a far off goal, is now within my grasps. Goal is seriously SO CLOSE!!!! could cry, I could scream, I could do some more happy dancing but none of that would even begin to express how I am feeling at this time. I can't imagine how I am going to feel on that glorious day when I see my GOAL WEIGHT on the scale.
I did a little poll on my FB page yesterday asking where everybody was from and I realized that I have followers from ALL OVER THE WORLD!!!!! Little ol' me from Egg Harbor Township, NJ is inspiring and connecting with people from Australia, Ireland, England, Canada, Scotland, and all across America from California to the New York Island. All I can say is WOW.
I truly believe that God has given me a gift that he wants me to share with the world and I'm not sure that it stops at just weight loss. I'm an onion, I have layers and this is just the beginning.
PRAISE GOD!!!! I would be nothing without His blessings.
Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for sharing this life changing journey with me.
