Initially, I thought the 12 weeks of of "no food" was going to be the hard part - but really, it was the transition and now, daily living. I NEVER want to go back to where I was - and I am so afraid of that happening. I do not want to be "that girl". You know, that poor girl who worked so hard to take off all the weight, only to put it all back on...and then some.
I have the potential to be that girl - and that scares me. But may, just maybe I can capitalize on that fear and keep focused and committed.
I have seen the results of weight loss. I feel great - I have so much more energy - I am see the benefits in all aspects of my life.
I am super proud of my commitment and hard work - and I still see areas I need to improve. I want to eat healthy. I want to live healthy. And, I think that desire will help me realize my ultimate weight loss goals and it will help me stay committed to this entire lifestyle change.
I hope it does...
I am sure there will be a strange feel in the meeting tonight. Most of us are not done our weight loss journey - and I think we all feel a bit nervous, anxious and tentative to be "on our own".
At the same time, I know that I am looking to define, follow and keep to a new lifestyle. I am confident that Weight Watchers will help me to get there and stay there.
My Weight Management Program with the liquid diet component taught m so much. I am walking out of the program with invaluable knowledge, acceptance and know-how. I am grateful to the program, and more specifically to the leaders - but my journey does not end, just because my program ends.
Thank you to everyone who has been following my journey. Thank you for your support. I hope that you will keep reading, commenting, inspiring, encouraging and cheering me on - I will never be able to properly express my gratitude.
OK - now, back to our Birthday Gift Count Down.
Drum Roll......at Number 38, my wish would be to get a little wave runner...a nice leisure and recreational vehicle.
This is the model I fell in love with at the Ottawa Boat Show this past weekend.
Anderson appreciated the fine steering and power of this fun-machine...
DJ could picture himself catching some rays and hitting some waves...
Madigan and Mommy were envisioning all the fun our entire family could have

Hee hee... no where in the rules does it say all 40 gifts have to be realistic...they can be the stuff dreams are made of!!!!
