Starting over I did not fain all 73 pounds back but I have about 25 to loose. Starting to count calories
Hello, do you know me? If you donít, you should. Iím a pound of fat, and Iím the happiest pound of fat that you would ever want to meet. Want to know why? Itís because no one wants to lose me, Iím Only One Pound, just a pound. Everyone wants to lose three pounds, five pounds or fifteen pounds but never one, so I just stick around and happily keep you fat. Then I add to myself ever so slyly so that you never seem to notice it, that is until Iíve grown to ten, twenty or even more pounds in weight. Yes, itís fun being Only One Pound of fat, left to do as I please. So when you weigh in, keep on saying, ďOh, I only lost one pound.Ē (as if that were such a terrible thing!) For you see, if you do this youíll encourage others to keep me around because they think Iím not worth losing. And I love being around you Ė your arms, your legs, your chin, your hips and every part of you.

Along my personal- weight-loss trip
I'll set new goals, change routine or my plan;
And get off the Plateau as quickly as I can!

I intend to keep the 70 plus pounds that I lost off of Weight Watchers.
I plan to count my points every day. I need to STOP making excuses.
