I may switch the focus of this blog to a topic that has “weighed” heavily on my mind for years: weight/fitness/diet.
When I was in high school I played competitive tennis so I worked out a LOT…as in running several miles a day. I could eat what ever I want and not gain an ounce…but it’s not like that anymore. My weight was consistent in high school, and from there, over the years I gained about 50 pounds. 50 POUNDS!!!!
In June of 2010 I decided to do something about it and joined Weight Watchers. Nothing has ever worked for me like WW. I became a lifetime member. I lost almost 30 pounds and kept it off for about a year. THEN I got a new job and slowly the weight piled back on. Last September I was back to my heaviest weight…and I felt awful…so I rejoined WW in early October.
Since October it has been a daily struggle. Since I’m on television, people notice EVERYTHING. I’ve actually gotten Facebook messages saying I need to lose weight. “You are on tv–you should be more conscious of the way you look”. Awful words that I would never even dream of saying to someone.
Soooooo since October I am proud to say I lost 18 pounds. I have 7 more to go, and I’m having a tough time. I’m addicted to McDonald’s, Reese’s PB Eggs and all kinds of junk food. Like I said, it’s a daily struggle…but it’s a struggle that is worth it in the long run. I already feel much healthier…I REALLY hope I can keep the weight off this time…
