I Had It To Myself


PLEASE don't hate me ladies...this is where I've been getting in my two mile walks the past two days! Yes...I know many of you are still covered in several feet of snow and at this moment you might want to throw a huge snowball at me, but please don't...just head on down to the gulf coast and join me for a walk on our beautiful beaches. The weather today was in the 60's and boy it sure did feel great walking the beach in shorts and short sleeve top. I could really get spoiled with this set-up...so much better than the treadmill at my church gym. As some of you know...I joined Weight Watchers three weeks ago and I'm very pleased with how it's working for me. I have lost six pounds but I feel like I have lost so much more. I made a mistake and did not take measurements when I started...I know I have lost inches because my clothes are telling me so. This plan dose not feel like a diet at all...so I feel like it will work for me. The pounds are coming off slow but that's okay with me...I'm in it for the long haul! Hope all of you have a wonderful weekend!

Congrats with the weight loss. Don't worry about it coming off slow. Just remember if you only lose a pound a week you lose 52 lbs in a year!

What a beautiful place to be taking your daily walk. There is nothing better than an invigorating walk along the beach.

Best wishes and keep up the great work with WW,
Natasha.

I would love to come to the beach and take a walk with you ... be there in about 5 hours :)
I did Weight Watchers and I am a Lifetime Member ... I wanted to lose about 15 pounds and I took it slow and it isn't really a diet. It worked for me! Congratulations on your weight loss.
Blessings,
Donna

NOT FAIR, my favorite place in the world is just a bit east of you on the gulf. Good luck with the weight lose. Can't wait to get to your area and enjoy the sun and sand. Have a great weekend.

Hi Linda,
Great job on the weight loss. I currently am living in Utah but grew up in S. California so I really miss the water. Maybe some day I'll get back to the beach but for now I will have to continue to be jealous of you!

I'm so jealous! I'm doing my walking to "Walk it Out" on the Wii...but it is so much fun I'm not complaining. The beach would be better...but that won't happen in Illinois! Congrats on the weight loss, WW is a great program.

How fantastic that you get to walk in such a beautiful area. 5 years ago when my friends and I worked out and lost weight, we measured ourselves every 6 weeks. It was AMAZING the inches that we lost. We've all kept it off and are so proud of ourselves. Keep it up and you wil continue to see results and feel good! Being healthy is what it is all about. Many blessings, Tammy
