Dedicated to Bryher

Well how do I start this?

I have a normal everyday blog but I knew it was time to start a blog of a different kind. All thanks to my good friend Bryher.

http://www.bryherhill.com/

She has lost 5st 8.5lbs in less than a year so far. Today she posted a photo on her blog that really made me go wow. I havent seen her since July as I have moved to Charlotte in the USA and she lives in Cardiff, UK. She looks so slim. And she isn't even done yet. She has been so consistent, dedicated and determined. Today when I saw here photos I felt like I can do this too.

Weight has always been like the little black cloud over my head. I lost a fair amount for my wedding in 2002 but put it back on and more. It hurts to write that!

So here my journey begins.

I will be following weighwatchers.

Im not sure yet how open I can be about figures and facts. The one that shocked me the most is my % of body fat. To be healthy it needs to decrease by 14% minimum.

In the last few weeks i have been casually monitoring my weight. In about 4 weeks ive lost 4.2lb.
Ok. i bite the bullet. Taking my weight to 228.6lbs. :-(

Why do I want to do this?

So many reasons. Health. I feel like my husband deserves better, despite the fact he shows how much he 'likes ' me or whatever and I dont feel insecure with him. He has promised we can take dancing lessons together if I can achieve 2 stone loss or whatever I decide. Im a strictly come dancing/dancing with the stars addict! He is so supporitve but I'm sure sick of the numerous attempts I make. I want this to be the last one.

I will be doing American Weightwatchers. I have been going through the kitchen pointing things with my calcualtor this morning.

I've been under the weather but when I can I will post some before photos I guess!

So thank you Bryher....watch this space.

Katie I can't tell you how proud I am of you and such a lovely first post. I'm so glad that I have inspired you and that you feel you can join me on this WW journey/lifestyle. It has changed me totally and I am so pleased that I decided to go for it in the first place. I know we both tried it before but I reckon seeing as this has been my time to achieve it, it will hopefully be yours too. I wish you the best of luck with it and I'll be with you every step of the way.
