I'm not closeminded...just see things better my way!

A few years ago I calculated how many pounds I've gained and lost, gained and lost in my life and the number is too embarrassing to post. You could say I'm a YoYo Dieter...or maybe MEGA YoYo would be a more accurate description for me. Most women play with 5-10 lbs....not, this girl!, my swing is usually 20-30 lbs! So when I gain, it's just crazy and then so hard to get motivated to lose....I mean, 30 lbs?!?!? that's overwhelming! And then there's the self -loathing...why did I let this happen again?!?!? Anyway, for this losing cycle WW is my 'plan'. It's so sensible and flexible and it's working for me! Down 2.2 lbs this week...best week so far...total 5.8 and counting! Off to the treadmill. Cya!
Am I really 50+? Life is good. My fortunes include an amazing husband, four fabulous daughters (2 birth, 2 bonus), two wonderful son-in-laws and three adorable grandsons. I am a teacher and owner of a home-based business. I started Basement Bags, a custom sewing/embroidery boutique, in 2005 and am working hard to monogram the world! I am usually too loud, always on a diet, passionate about sewing/embroidery, love to read, appreciate a good glass of White Zen, and live for school vacations. I am thankful for hair color and shapeware. I love 'Mexican dates' with my family, summers at the lake, thunder storms and sleeping late on Saturday! "Home" is my favorite place on earth.
