I started attending Weight Watchers over 40 yrs. ago, when I was in high school. WOW...that makes me sound really OLD! The closest meeting was 90 miles- one way! My mother and I went together. I think she was doing it more for me than for her. She didn't want me to experience life as a fat person like she had. I guess I wasn't ready back then. In my mid-20's I went back to WW, and took off 75 lb. I didn't recognize the person that I saw in the mirror. I went thru a dramatic physical change, but never really accepted my weight loss emotionally. I'd never had to deal with attention from the opposite sex, or jealousy from other women. I didn't even know how to accept a compliment. I gradually gained the weight back. It made me feel safe.

Over the years I have lost 50 lb here...75 lb there, but I would always gain it back, +more, of course. I finally get it. Weight loss is not just's mental, and emotional. Even spiritual. I have all of the tools that I need here at SparkPeople, and at my WW meetings. I'm not afraid of failing. I'm not afraid of succeeding! It took me 40 years to get to this place- IT*SNEVER2LATE!!!

Betty Boop is a legend we grew up with
and a lady with class,
She can be a cowgirl or princess,quiet or
sometimes full of sass.
We can decide her mood for the day
and create her image anew,
She's got clothes most only dream of,
that's what we love to do.
Our imagination's can travel far with
Betty Boop,
So here's to you Betty,a big

Doing WW. I like the flexibility of the program, & learning how to make healthy choices, yet still be able to splurge when I chose. Will attend my meetings weekly. I also have a couple of WW SparkTeams that I joined. WW & Sparks go great together.
Start out moderate on my recumbent exercise bike, say 30 mins. 3-4X/Week. I have a Tai Chi DVD I'm gonna try.

    Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself,
    and know that everything in life has purpose.
    There are no mistakes, no coincidences,
    all events are blessings given to us to learn from.

    What lies behind us and what lies before us
    are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

    Vision stands on the shoulders of what is actual
    to get a better view of what is possible.

    Never mind what others do; do better than yourself, beat your own record from day to day, and you are a success.
