Well.....I DID IT!

I joined weight watchers this morning.I'm going to follow it online and see how that goes.It's my best option right now.The hubby isn't too keen on the location of where the local meetings are held and said if I did it that way he would "chauffer" me to and from the meetings.And I don't want that.He's kinda overprotective.To an outsider it might look controlling,but he means well.I've had to give him TALKS every now and then about that LOL and remind him that I am capable of doing things on my own.I'm excited--scared--relieved that I finally joined.I've seen it on tv for a long time and always thought about it but never really had the funds to do it until now.I guess this is finally saying to myself "we have to change something".I'm tired of being sick.I'm tired of being tired all the time.I'm sick of al the medications I have to take that the drs say I wouldn't have to take "if only I'd lose weight".Easier said than done right? And I think I've kinda put myself on the back burner since I got married and became a mom.I don't do all the personal "upkeep" I used to do.Somedays I just don't have the time or energy to do it.But I am getting better.I've started going back to the salon every two weeks if only for a 15 minute manicure or pedicure.I think sometimes that when women get married/have a family they lose a part of themselves.I want to get it back--at least some of it.I want to get that little part of ME back.Hopefully this will be the first step......
