10%

This post is all about me!(Mettina)  My whole life I have struggled with weight.  I've tried working out and going on diets.  Nothing seems to work.  I have a good friend that went on weight watchers a few years ago and she has lost a ton of weight and has kept it off.  We started talking around Christmas time about the program and I decided to give it a try.  I started Jan 3rd and to this day have lost 25lbs, or 10% of myself!  I have retrained myself how to eat.  I'm not starving all the time, and I don't feel like I have to eat everything all the time. I realized that I would eat a lot at night just because I was bored.  I would also eat whatever left overs the kids had on their plates.  I'm eating better foods and the right portions.  My clothes are not fitting at all, as most of you know, which is a good thing!  I'm even bringing out boxes of 9 year old clothes that are too big!!  The best part is that I feel good about myself.  I'm not so tired all the time.  I get out with my kids more now too.  I plan to keep going at least another 30lbs so I'm almost half way there.  I should put pix on here so that I can look back later, but I'm not that brave yet ;)  Thanks for all the support from family and friends, you know who you are.  I wouldn't be able to do it without you guys!!
