Ready...Set...Lose 40 pounds!

That's right - my mission for 2012 is to lose 40 lbs!!!

So goodbye fatty foods...


Hello Weight Watchers!
Before I got pregnanty with Emmalee, I spent 6 months losing 35 lbs.  Then I gained 42 during my pregnancy, and now I'm 20 from my prepregnancy weight (I was about 10 away but then the holidays hit!).

I'm lucky though because my co-worker whom I share an office with, Jessica, just had a baby and wants to lose 40 as well.  So we are doing this together, and the great news is that we have a company gym in our office that is free to use.  So everyday at 2, we plan on walking for at elast 30-40 minutes, then of course using the Weight Watcher's Points Plus System. 

So recently I was reading a recent issue of "Parents" magazine and it discussed New Years Resolutions.  One of the things it said was not to set goals that span a year because those goals are the ones that we are most likely to fail at.  It said to set goals in a more acheivable fasion - such as a goal for each month or one for each quarter of the year.  So I have decided to apply this theory to weight loss.  My first goal is to lose 15 lbs by Emmalee's first birthday - April 15th.  

So today is officially day 1!!  Let's see how I do my first week, which is always the hardest!
