2 years

Today marks two years, to the day of when I first stepped into Weight Watchers and began my journey! It is amazing to see and the feel the difference two years can make in ones life. On one hand, when I joined Weight Watchers, I was super excited to get started and to begin my journey. On the other hand, I was overwhelmed of what was ahead of me. The goals and job that needed to be done seemed VERY daunting and overwhelming. It wasn't always easy but I stuck with it. Each day consisted of putting one foot in front of the other and focusing on the final goal I had set for myself.

I am so close to accomplishing what I set out to do. I am happy to report, at this two year mark, I am 1 pound away from my final goal. I single pound!!! I am not gonna lie, I am SO excited and SO ready to reach that goal. I feel like I have been chasing that final (weight) goal number forever. In a way, I kind of have been. Losing the 100 lbs., in (slightly) over a year almost seemed easy. I guess easy isn't quite the right word. Maybe consistent is a better word to describe that 1st year. The lbs. came off, each week, consistently! Once I reached that 100 lb. mark, the last 19 lbs. that I had/wanted  to lose seemed to be a slow, drawn out process. I am happy to report that I have stuck with it. I attend my weekly Weight Watchers meetings. I track my food/points. I go to the gym 6 days a week. I walk or run on my treadmill. I try to make the better choices each and every day!

I love Weight Watchers(and no, I am not being paid to say this) and the tools I have been given to lead/ live a healthier life.  What a difference 2 years can make!!!

This is a quote I pinned over on Pinterest. It has constantly echoed in my ear over the last two years.

I wanted it AND I needed it for myself. I had to get back on track and find the healthy me!
At the two year mark, I can honestly say that  I am so glad I took the journey!
