Lost 100 pounds

Obviously we didn't lose 100 pounds each. Andrew lost 50 and I lost the other 50, except for days when I indulge then it ends up being more like 48:) Anyways, after KK was born I was feeling so relieved to not be pregnant anymore and I was tired of being overweight. I told Andrew I wanted to join Weight Watchers and reach my lifetime goal this time. Later he told me he wanted to do it with me. I was thrilled to have the support, and later found out that he did it at first to be supportive and then as he got into it he did it for himself. We both are thinner than we were in high school which is really great. I have learned that no one can make you lose weight, that you need to have an internal motivation to do it, and that I am still an emotional eater. Moving has been a little rough because I am tempted to eat to fill the void of loneliness or homesickness. However, the good news is that I don't overindulge or feed my emotions nearly as much as I used to before I did Weight Watchers. I have done Weight Watchers since I was an overweight kid and it amazes me that I was able to lose weight this fast and reach my lifetime goal! I still want to tone up, but I am definitely proud of what I have accomplished:)
