The REAL reason

I did this Weight Watchers thing before, after Andrew was born, and had great success. I am back to Weight Watchers now and doing well. I am looking forward to getting back to my original goal weight that I reached. And I do have reasons. I want to be healthy. I want to take care of my body. I want to feel good. But my newest most compelling reason is this! I bought it in the size I WILL be!

That dress is gorgeous!!! I really hope you will post a picture of yourself in it when you reach your goal weight so we can all celebrate with you! :)

And, I just also have to say: I am so inspired and motivated by your successful weight loss. It is something that I, too, have always struggled with. My biggest success came before I was married, when I lost 35 pounds before the wedding. But eight years of marriage and three children have added all of that plus too much more back onto my 5'5" frame, and I am NOT happy now with how I look or feel. My cousin recently reached her goal weight with Weight Watchers, too (she's the mother of a one year old boy), so between the two of you I know it can be done! For now, I'm trying to lose it on my own by eliminating sweets (with the exception of a half cup serving of strawberry cheesecake ice cream in the afternoon!), smaller portions, healthier food choices, and walks in the evening. So far I've lost five pounds, but I may still seriously look into Weight Watchers, especially for the reasons you mentioned in the post you linked to: to be healthier, to look and feel better, and, most importantly, to be at a healthier weight when we are blessed again with another pregnancy.

I'll pray for you. You pray for me! :)

That is such a cute dress! I love the color - so summery! It's always good to have a reward for when you reach your goal. :)
