September 20th, 2010, 10:42 PM #1My Weight Loss Journey
13 weeks ago my wife and I joined Weight Watchers. I'm also an affiliate. I decided to start a blog about my journey and my accomplishments.
I've lost 17.5 LBS and in that time I've gone from being at risk of getting Diabetes to having a normal blood sugar level.
I no longer have high blood pressure either. I attribute all my success to Weight Watchers and my primary care physician.
Iíve that found losing weight is challenging but has also rewarding since Iíve seen the rewards to a healthier lifestyle.
I've battled obesity for 10 years and Weight Watchers allows me to enjoy my food, feel satisfied and lose weight.
I still have lots of weight to lose but my next goal is to be able to stop using my C-Pap machine that I use for my Sleep Apnea.
I probably need to lose another 15 lbs in order to have another sleep study.

Way to go, Bibby - keep it up!
It must have really been tough at your relative's home last Saturday night (though you probably dropped a pound or two during the day).

It was particulary hard last weekend becase it was my Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashana) and m family made some of my favorites.
I enjoyed all of them but ate modeately, wich was the key to not having a large weight gain.

Congratulations to both you and your wife. Losing weight is never easy and it looks like you found the right path for you, and it helps that you did it together. Easier if you are both attempting to accomplish the same goalDeborah Carney

Thanks for all the positive feedback. I haven't updated my blog yet but I lost nearly a pound last week. So I'm back on track.
I do have to do a better job at the club and be more consistent with my workouts but I'll take it one step at a time.
On a personal level, deciding to lose weight and lead a healthier lifestyle was an emotional and gut wrenching process this time around.
I would see myslef in the mirror and be disgusted.
My two year old daughter and she deserves to have a healthy father and one that will be around to witness her accomplishements and experiences.
I owe her that.
My family is my life. My wife and daughter deserve for me to take my health seriously and conquer my obesity once and for all.

I love that you decided to lose weight because of your health and family. That is the kind of motivation that will keep you going through your entire journey, instead of the vanity aspects. I think almost everyone can relate to what you are going through and we all know that it isn't easy, but keep your motivation strong and enjoy the way your body feels, rather than how you look in the mirror. My motivation for fitness is all about the feeling of having energy, strength, and flexibility. Its nice to look in the mirror and like the way you look, but you can't let that be your only motivation.

It's actally fun...I'm experiencing a host of new foods that I can enjoy and that are healthy. My wife and I are experiencing this together and the big prize is that we are teaching our 2 year old daughter the right way to eat and stay healthy.
This is a great gift we're giving our child...so failure isn't an oppton. I pray at night that I will continue to have the motivation to continue on this path.
