Weight Loss

Ok, so for those of you Weight Watchers gurus, I'm going to start a weight loss blog. Jen G inspired me to do it and I haven't taken the time this weekend, with Jacob's colonoscopy and all that.
I have to be honest. I feel fed up and determined. But I feel no confidence. I look at Jen G, Jen C and Candace with their pcitures and success. Deep down I don't feel like I can do it. I feel discouraged before I even start. But as my hard as# neighbor said, 'That's just another excuse." So, even though I doubt myself, I'm just going to go for it. I've been careful over the weekend but didn't really worry about points with everything going on.

Today I am going full force and I need all the help and encouragement I can get!

So what should I call the blog? I'm going to try to make a poll, just for fun. It's at the top on the right. I jsut came up with them super fast. Give me some suggestions!!!

I am all over mad cow on the mend. Weight loss is a scary emotional journey- one I feel like I will always be on. Our bodies and our hearts are mended as we wrestle with our weight. I am so proud of you Talitha. You can do this!! It is not going to be easy- but you can do this. Know that you are not alone.

"Striving for a healthy body image"
LOL. Let me know how Jacob's colonoscopy goes.

Talitha said...

Hmmm... good one Cyn. Once I get a rest (naptime most likely) I'll post about the whole day on momstinct.com But it went well. Still waiting on results.

Thanks momma ((hug))

I kinda like Downsize Me. But I really think it would be awesome to call it Talitha's Shrinking Ass.
Seriously though, I think it's great that you're fed up. I think you have to be to really be motivated. I know for me, it took seeing Candace's and Jen's blogs to make me mad. I was mad that I had "tried" in a very half assed way to lose weight, and that they gave it their all and saw results. I was mad at myself, but very motivated to change it. I'm excited to see your journey!

Talitha said...

OH Dude. Jen that one is awesome!!! "Talitha's Shrinking Ass"!!! LOL

Candace Smartt said...

Talitha, I am very proud of you for taking this step. Girl...it was HARD work, but TOTALLY worth it to know that i am doing what I can to be healthy.
YOu can do it, too. There isn't anything different between me, you, or Jen. I did ALOT of prayin' when I was losin weight...I NEVER thought it would happen. NEVER. The result WAS ABSOLUTELY WORTH the pain and suffering (I felt like) I endured!
Love you girl. keep us posted.

Talitha, I know you can do this. I went through the same thing as you are not to long ago and in the last 5 weeks I have seen some amazing results! Keep it up. You know you can do it! I know you can do it!
