Time to get healthy

Ok folks... let me be brutally honest here. I am overweight and I know it. I know that I could stand to lose a good 30+ pounds. I just haven't had the motivation or the help to do so... that sounds like a really pathetic excuse eh? Anyhow, Michael and I have been recently talking about joining a gym since part of our problem (on top of eating crap!) is that we don't get any exercise. With Michael being diabetic and me being, well just bigger than I should be, we really need to have a lifestyle change in our eating as well as exercise. I want to be around for a long time and I want to teach Abraham healthy living.
So my friend Mel over at A Box of Chocolates has had tremendous success using Weight Watchers. She has been able to lose 40 lbs by eating right, tracking her eating online as well as exercising. I think that this could really work for me. Which is why I would really like to win the giveaway that she is having on her blog.
Whether or not I win the free 3 month subscription, Michael and I are both going to have to just buck up and set our minds to get healthy. It is important to us - we just need to put the action behind the words.

I've used weight watchers off and on for years, and when I really apply myself it always works. Give it a try. Good Luck. Karen
