Day One...A New Me!

Today is day one for me...I went last night and joined WEIGHT WATCHERS! I have been trying to lose some weight on my own and it was just not working for this gal...I needed HELP and I'm hoping that this program will be my answer. Mr.CC and my sister also joined...the three of us are VERY determined to lose the weight for health reasons and of course...we want to look FABULOUS...now that will be a miracle! The three of us have been working out at our church gym and that has been sooooo incredible...I have really improved a lot since day one at the gym and I hope to keep improving. Mr.CC and I will celebrate our 25th anniversary (can't believe this man has put up with me for 25 years) in July and we are planning a 10-14 day trip to places that we have always wanted to see...more on that to follow. I know I will not be at the same weight (110 lbs.) as I was on our wedding day, but I do want to LOOK and FEEL wonderful for my SWEETIE! I'm very motivated to get my body in shape...not only for myself but also for my AWESOME family. I will be sure to keep you up on how it's going...wish me LUCK...I will sure need it:)

My SWEET sis made me a WEIGHT WATCHERS carrot cake for my birthday...not too bad:)

Not only did she make me a cake...she gave me this beau-ti-ful cake stand...it looks outstanding in my new kitchen...thanks sis!

Good luck with Weight Watchers...I think they're a great program. And what a sweet sister you have: a cake AND a cake plate!

Hope you get to go to NOLA for the parades. That would be a great post.

Wow - good luck! I have heard some great success stories from Weight Watchers.
And I love that cake stand!

Best of Luck! I did WW after my first baby. I had put on 60 pounds - ick! I lost it all - fast & in a healthy way. If you pick the right foods you won't feel hungry! You can do it!

Amanda Jo said...

Welcome to the WW club! I joined 4 weeks ago and LOVE it! I really enjoy the program and I especially enjoy the meetings - I just love the support from all of my WW buddies!

The Girl Creative said...

I lost 96 lbs on weight watchers in 2008 - you can totally do it. :) I wound up going to a meeting 2x in my first week. lol So cool that you have people to do it with you. :)

The Lone Star Queen said...

My mother lost a lot of weight on Weight Watchers. I'm thinking of starting somekind of program but I haven't decided which one yet. I wish you much success!

Low Tide High Style said...

Oh this has been on my mind for a long time. A poorly functioning thyroid and adrenal gland are not my friends when it comes to losing weight but I'm determined to fit back into the lovely clothes I have in my closet this summer!

Keep us posted and we'll be there to support you should you be tempted to stray!

red.neck chic said...

Okay - you have to tell me.... do they have the little "hungry" monster at weight watchers? I want one of those. LOL

I am so excited for you!!! I've heard that it works great!!! And seriously the carrot cake looks almost as delicious as the cake stand!!!

Good luck and good luck and good luck! We can be your support group on all of the other days!!!

Good luck and keep us posted. I need to be with you every step of the way.

Good luck to you! I am rooting for you. I am a lifetime member of WW and go every Friday to a meeting. I love the people in my group. It is good you have support. You go girl!

Wishing you the best with your new program. That carrot cake looked pretty good to me! Any leftovers?

Mmm....nice looking cake and I love the plate! Good luck with WW!

WW is wonderful!! I am lifetime and love it still, once you know it, it is with you forever. I have not been in a long time, and I know they have changed some things, but regardless it is awesome!!~ Good luck, you will do great!

Shellbelle said...

Loving that cake plate, what a great color! Good luck on your diet, sounds like you have a lot of motivation and a lot of support, including all your blogging buddies. I'm hoping that when I get moved I'll be more motivated to work out, right now I'm spending all my energy packing. But that should be burning lots of calories, don't you think?

Aaron@CheapThrillsDecorating said...

You go, girl!

Kristy said...

What a great cake stand- where did she find that! And can you post the cake recipe And you can do it!!! I am trying to get rid of all this baby weight and it is so hard when you love to cook and would rather make things than exercise! keep it up!

Cathryn said...

Good Luck with WW! With your sister and husband on board, you will be very successful! I started dieting 1/18 and am already down a size. Woo Hoo!

sissie said...

Your sister is so sweet to make you a WW cake and give you a beautiful cake plate along with it.
You are so fortunate.

Good luck with your weight loss program.


Love 'n Light said...

Love the cake stand! Your sister sounds very thoughtful, I am blessed to have one of those too!
Good luck with WW, you CAN do anything you set your mind and heart to and with good company it's even easier!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that cake stand... A can of pumpkin, a spice cake mix, and s small box of raisins makes a very yummy WW cake or muffins. Good Luck. Lezlee

Love the Decor! said...

Good luck on the journey!! I have been toying with that idea (WW) for awhile myself I just haven't done it yet. Maybe You can be my motivation :)

Kim said...

So proud of you and what you are working towards. I did great when on WW.. lost over 50 lbs.

By the way, what a sweet sister!

Fanchy said...

Welcome to the WW's clan. I'm a lifetimer who needs to lose a bit more. I've even blogged about it. Check it out

I lost 64 lbs initially and it's by far the best way to go! I'm proud of you for wanting to make a change in your life. And Happy Birthday and congrats on your upcoming anniversary!

marmielu said...

Good luck with the Weight Watchers. Several of my in-laws have done it. Exercise is so important, too. My hubby has been on a self imposed diet and exercise plan for several years now, and he has steadly lost weight. He did it mainly for health reasons, too.
25 years coming up!!! Good for you, girl! We went to Charleston for our 25th. I would love to go back. Can't wait to hear about the places you all are planning to visit.

Congrats, You will do great! How not to with such a wonderful support group. Love the cake plate! Treat yourself well, all will be well!

Donna said...

I am a WW lifetime member. You will enjoy it and drop pounds before you know it!
The cake looks delish and the plate is adorable.

fairfieldhouse said...


Best of luck on this journey. You should get yourself a pedometer and aim for 10,000 steps a day. The pounds will fall off of you. Happy belated birthday. What a sweet sister you have!


T's Daily Treasures said...

Ha! At first when I saw your post, I thought that was a king cake. :/ How sweet that your sister made you a WW cake for your birthday and gifted you with a beautiful cake stand to boot. Lovely! 5 years ago, I worked out with two friends, changed my eating completely, lost 30 lbs and have kept it off. I feel sooooooo much better for it. Remember, it is a lifestyle change and if you really want it, you can do it. Walking is free and the best exercie for everyone. I love, love, love walking and hiking. Okay, it's not so wonderful doing it in Kuwait, not much to look at -- but I still pound the pavement when I can. And when I get to the States, I totally enjoy the outdoors, nature trails, etc. Wishing you all the best. Tammy

Jess @ Frugal with a Flourish said...

I think you will like WW, I have found that any time I actually have to track what I eat I do better with keeping the weight off!

Beautiful cake stand too! Your a lucky girl!

Patti said...

What a sister!! Love the cake stand....where did she purchase it?

Jodie LeJeune said...

Hi Linda!!!
I wish you the best of luck in your WW program!!! A 10-14 day trip with hubby and a 25 year anniversary is certainly motivation to join up and get fit!!!
I had to chuckle there for a minute though. I thought maybe you were coming to New Orleans for the parade. Then I read about you joining WW and thought...there is NO way you can come down to Louisiana and follow WW...NO WAY!!! ;)
I advise you that it is wise for you to stay in Alabama and away from the Mardi Gras King Cakes at this time. That is, unless WW has a good receipe! haha!!!
I so hope you meet your goal...I'm cheering you on girl!!!!
everything vintage

Joanne Kennedy said...

Congrats on starting WW. I've been going weeekly for several months now and I have lost 45 lbs! I'm so excited when I think about it.

I'm glad you stopped by my blog as I have been reading your blog and love it! I still have lots more to read.
