Hello everyone. I'm new here and pretty new o weight loss too. I've been around the same weight since college (graduated in 2000), give or take 10 pounds either way. I'm 5;6 and was 185lbs a few days ago though I'm told I don't look it.
When my husband joined weight watchers a few years ago they told me I really didn't need it and I've never really tried losing weight on purpose before having been pretty satisfied with the way I was.
But I've done some research into BMI, plus I see my Wii Fit readings every day and I know my weigh for my height is very overweight. Plus, I am going to be impersonating a historical character this August for a fair and I need to lose a bit to get into the old fashioned gown.
SO Here I am taking my first weight loss journey. ^^
I started on Tuesday and as of right now I have lost 3 pounds. I know it will come off faster in the beginning as I saw that with my husband. I have a good amount of willpower as long as I have access to the right foods and a very simple way to track them. Weight watchers frustrated me a bit trying to figure out the points for home cooked dinners and going out too. This site seems much more straightforward and simple.
My challenge will be getting healthy foods at my fingertips. I am visually impaired and don't drive so often I find myself with nothing to eat but what is in the vending machine at work unless I can get a lift to the store. And vending machine food is definitely NOT ideal. So I'm going to have to work hard at planning ahead I think.
Anyway nice to meet you all and I'm looking forward to some interesting and insightful conversations.
