The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!

FMM: How Much Weight Have You Lost?  And what have you gained from losing it? (If you’re participating in FMM – and you’re not on a weight-loss journey, tell us about a powerful change you’ve made in your life!

The first time I joined Weight Watchers (August 2008 - September 2010) my final total was 62.6 lbs.  My high point was in March 2010 at 64.0 lbs.  But I'd plateau'd for close to a year & was very discouraged & annoyed.  So I took a break.  I started back on WW in March of this year (I'd gained 18 lbs of that back - dammit!!).  It's coming off much slower this time. 
So I'm still 56 lbs lighter than I was 3 years ago.  I feel so much better!  I know my health is better.  I walked around the Toronto Zoo this past weekend (lots of steep hills) and felt fine doing it, even in the heat.  I have a lot fewer aches & pains & I know I look better, too!


  1. Stopping by from FMM: I think it's amazing that you were able to keep the weight off after a break-I took a break from WW and gained 60 pounds! Congratulations on that accomplishment, and congratulations on the physical accomplishments too!

  2. Way to go on 56 pounds! And a small rebound gain of 18 pounds isn't too bad at all, good for you for getting back at it. It's so worth it when the weight comes off. :)


Leave a note - they make me feel loved!
