Time To Shrink the Jeans (and Waist)

Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans

I went to the Endocronologist today...and he gave me a talkin' to! I need to lose some SERIOUS WEIGHT. He is concerned about my long term health and the distinct possibility of diabetes...then I found out that the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans is starting a new challenge. It starts today and runs through May! What better time to start up again than NOW!! I need to get this weight off and I obviously need to some motivation!

So here goes...I weighed 225 pounds today at the doctor....pretty sad and disgusting for a person who weighed 123 pounds in 1990! That's over 100 pounds in 18 years...VERY, VERY, SAD and SICKENING! So here's what I'm doing --- I'm going to check in every day with the Sisters (and 1 brother) and I'm going to join Weight Watchers and stop drinking the Cokes that I am so addicted to!! Not to mention....visiting the gym that I have been a member of for the past 3 1/2 years and doing more than reading my books and watching stupid music videos...I mean really kickin' my booty with the exercise machines! So help me and keep me motivated and honest.

I'll be checking in here every week and letting you know how I'm doing so please comment and let me know you are keeping tabs on me!
