Weight Watchers and some other thoughts.....

Today I joined Weight Watchers and boy was that number an eye opener. I now weigh the most I have ever weighed in my life!! Not a great feeling but I have a precious baby girl sleeping in the next room that made it all worth it. BUT...she is now almost 8 months old and she can not be my excuse anymore! I am actually feeling excited today to start this new journey to get back to my old self again. I want to have more energy and be healthier and I am not gonna lie....I want to be skinny!!! (healthy skinny!!) For me that would be shedding about 40 pounds. That is a huge number but I can do it. I have lost 30 before on WW and can do this too!!
Yesterday I took Noah to Texas Children's to a hypertension specialist because he has had some high blood pressure readings in the last few months. Everything checked out fine but the doctor says he needs to loose 10 pounds too. Poor baby....he is like his momma....can't just eat what he wants and stay trim!! He and I are going to do it together. He is SO disciplined as he really wants to follow what the dietitian told us yesterday and he is excited to go to the store and buy some of the stuff she told him he could eat! I love that boy so much and I am the only one that can help him stay healthy while he is a child. God trusted me with him and I don't want to let Him down!!!
Stay tuned each Tuesday for my weight loss numbers!!!

Oh and I have already jogged 1 mile on the treadmill today and am going to walk with good friend Jackie tonight!!! Go me!!!!
