Weigh in

Yesterday was weigh in day!  I was down 1.2 lbs.  Not a super loss for 2 weeks but I'll take it!  So that's a total of 33.6 lbs so far.  Our little Weight Watchers at work group doesn't have enough people to go through the summer.  So that just means we will take 8 weeks off and start up again on September 9th.  I will still keep going though, my friend Jen from work and I are going to go to a meeting downtown on Fridays.  I wonder how much I can lose in 8 weeks?  I'm going to aim for 10 lbs.  That's a little more than a pound a week.  Doable I think!  I was at the gym today and had a great work out.  I'm still quite happy to do the Elliptical trainer and the rowing machine.  I also do a bit of weight training now and then but not on a regular basis.  I really want to try some of the classes offered at the gym but I'm afraid to try.  I talked to some of the girls that work there and they seem to think I'll be fine.  The one said that everyone at one time had to take that first class.  True.  They even suggested I try Spin Class!!  I told them that really scared me!  I see them all sweaty and working out like maniacs.  Yikes!  So here's the deal, tomorrow I will probably maybe want to defiantly take a class! Wish me luck.  I thought I would post some pics of me at my heaviest.  I sure see a difference in myself from then to now.

                                                     This was taken in Cuba in 2010

                                                                  Jamaica 2008

                                           This was taken March 4 of this year.  I had already
                                           started losing weight here.  On the right is my sister
                                           Nancy at her goal weight!  I can't wait till I will actually
                                           enjoy having my picture taken.  I sure don't like how I
                                           look in these ones!

                                              I'm pretty sure I'll never get to this weight again!
                                              My wedding day - weight 145 lbs

                                              ....but I'm getting closer to goal every day!
