Ok, now on a Personal Note: I joined Weight Watchers & join a health club on Monday. I have been this path before as many of us have. Gain, Lose, Gain Lose! Since running the store full time, I have neglected myself. I have had great success with Weight Watchers in the past (lost 50lbs. twice) and know I will again. I had done Weight Watchers 2 times, once after my 3rd Son & another after my 4th. I had done a different weight loss program 3 years ago which was great but there was more supplements, timing of eating and restrictions. I feel Weight Watchers is more realistic for me! The weird thing was when I weighed in to get started, (no I will not tell you what that weight was!) It was the exact same weight as when I started to lose 3 Years ago! I guess that is my breaking point! I know it is hard to predict the future but I really feel this will be the last time I do this! It is a lot of effort to lose the weight, but little effort to put it on! So I plan to keep it off this time! I respect myself too much not to! As I teach in my art classes everything we learn is important for the next thing we do. We learn in layers, each one important for the next step, project or journey. I really feel this way with my weight loss/gain. If I had not gone that route of loss/gain etc, I would not have the knowledge of the past experience to set my mind on my goal and future!

I have coupons at the store for Free Registration or Scrapbook Kit at Weight Watchers when I invite a friend. Good thru 4/21.

Take Care,
