  2. Totally - I understand what you mean! I was tired of complaining of my situation and thought - you, only you have the power to turn this around and I know I will. I'm starting Curves tonight too. I need both exercise & eating plan! Yeah to me for starting today!
  3. Hi there everyone! Some faces are still similar, others are new! I'm back...for the third time in 2-3 years I think?! My weight is at an all-time high... I have at least 50 pounds to lose. My goal would be around 70 pounds. I'm starting Curves on Monday and I'm planning on starting WW next Monday too (just can't find my points thingy to tell me how much I should eat!). I'll try to do it on my own for the first few weeks. I'm tired of complaining...of looking at older pictures and finding my smile to be soooo comfortable, so genuine... so happy! I want that smile back...I want that comfort back. Hope everyone is doing well! Chantal

  9. Hi Bec, First of all, Welcome!! You made a first move in taking care of yourself...that's what we are all trying to achieve here. I can see where you are coming from. Last year, I did WW at home. I took some information from my mom and friends... and it worked. I lost 8 pounds in a month but then... my motivation went away.... Now I'm back and I joined a WW meeting at work. I joined in when there was 4 weeks left...so it's only costing me half the price. I'll give it a try and see if I could possibly do this on my own... time will tell. This site help me a whole bunch... but this time, I've decided to post more and read more what the others are writing. I think it's important to have some support... and that's what you'll find here!! Don't hesitate to contact me for some info or whichever.
  10. Congrats! You should be proud of all the work you've done.... YOU DID THIS!
