This past July, I went on a family vacation to Minnesota and came back 3 pounds heavier. Now, while this may not seem like a huge vacation weight gain, I now weighed close to what I weighed in middle school (I shiver at the memories). Since I didn't want to gain any more, and on account of the enormous success my friend Leah was currently having on Weight Watchers (And still having...Go Leah!), I decided to try this whole Weight Watchers thing once more.
The first week was a little hard. I found it difficult to give up the quantity of sweets I was eating. I made the choice to give up my habitual, caramel-laden coffee drinks because I didn't feel they were worth the points. I bought a lot more produce at the grocery store (and ate it!)...
I lost 22 pounds.

I reached my goal weight 2 weeks ago and am now (and forever more) working on maintenance. In 4 weeks, I get my lifetime membership to Weight Watchers, meaning as long as I am no more than 2 pounds over my goal, I will never have to pay for another meeting. Whoo to the hoo :-)
