The Big Reveal -- New Year's Day -- A Whole New Me

Look out folks. I'm going Kirstie Alley on you. Recently, Kirstie appeared on Oprah strutting her stuff in a bikini to show off her slender new bod after losing 75 pounds on the Jenny Craig weight loss program. She said it was very motivating knowing she would be sharing her results with the world. I can imagine it was.

For the past three months I've been on the Weight Watchers flex plan and have lost 25 pounds. I have 10-15 more to go. They say the last 10 pounds are the hardest. So, here goes. To make sure I stay on track, I'm giving myself a little extra incentive. No, I won't be posting a picture of myself in a bikini, (You can all breathe a sigh of relief.) but I will be posting before and after pictures on New Year's Day. I might even don an evening gown for the after photo.

Congratulations on the weight loss! I know how hard it is, especially with little ones. I need to get back on Weight Watchers, too. Of course, I've been saying that for the past 2 years. Maybe the next duty station...

Holy smokes! I need to lose 20 pounds and I cannot make myself stick to WW. How did you do it??

Thanks. Something clicked when I visited my doctor in August, the right motivation for me I suppose. As far as the program, lots of salads and veggies (bye bye fast food), plus increasing activity. The WW meetings are great. When I hit a bump, they keep me going.
