My new weight loss arsenal

Two exciting things in the weight loss front for me. For one, the swimming pool is officially back open on base. So today I rushed off to the pool to swim a few laps. Man am I out of shape. It probably didn't help that the person I go with actually use to swim competitively. Which I just learned today as she quickly swam laps around me (forgive me, but I had to use that pun). Luckily she's understanding and helps push me.

The second exciting tidbit is that as of today I am using...

Yep, I am all signed up thanks to a wonderful and very understanding husband!

For once in my life I can actually say that I am ready and driven to do this. I want this and I am not going to give up this time. I'm happy with my husband, I am happy with where we live and damnit it's time for me to be happy with how I look and feel! Plus I am so ready to be able to wear high heels for longer than 30 minutes again (thanks 50lbs of extra weight for killing my desire to wear heels).

I'm excited to be able to add swimming back into my weight loss arsenal, and I am definitely excited (and slightly scared) to use Weight Watchers. I hope it will allow me to keep enjoying food while at the same time help food no longer rule my world.

Now to see what happens!


  1. Good luck! I can't wait to see your progress. I hear so many good things about WW!

  2. Congrats! Swimming is terrific for you, I swam for many years (but finding pools in NYC can be a bit of a pain so I don't go as frequently now). I can't wait to read about your progress!

  3. I'll back again for sure, thanks for great article :D
