My Plan

So I've decided to wait until after the holidays to start my diet.  Casey's dad is coming the first week of January and I know we are going to wind up going to dinner.  I don't want to feel deprived so I am going to wait until after he goes home to start.  Which means I am allowed to pig out for another 2 weeks or so.  Then I need to get my act together.

40 lbs in 1 year

I'm getting married on August 12, 2012.  Within the next year (by December 2011), I would like to lose 40 lbs so I can try on dresses and not feel completely gross about it.  I've done Weight Watchers before successfully so I am going to try to do that again.  In this blog, I'm going to write all about my struggles.  I'll also post progress pictures and recipes that are healthy.  Wish me luck!!
