Welcome to my Journey!

Welcome to my weight loss journey.

I know that some of you are thinking that I have so many online "irons in the fire" - why would I want to start another blog? Well, the answer is simple -- this one is for me. And I need YOU to help ME.

You see, I have to become Two-Thirds of myself. I need to lose 1/3 of my current weight to get back to a healthy, attractive, reasonable weight.

One-Third. Whew. That is a lot, isn't it? Thats a ton of good eating behind the 1/3 that needs to melt off me. Well, no-one says that I can't eat well and be well while I am losing that third.

This blog is my way of putting my weight loss efforts out there for all to see -- a very public way for me to lose my weight. A bit of accountability. I need accountability and the idea that there are people looking over my shoulder. So will you join me on my public journey? If you decide to lose weight, too, great -- but just keep me accountable, will you?

Alright, down to Brass Tacks.

I started Weight Watchers online on January 4th. I have lost 6.4 pounds in the 10 days that I have been on the program. I really love this online tool -- I spend a great deal of my life in the cyber-world, why not diet on it? Really, I like the immediacy of the tracking tools and the way that it keeps me in focus.

Okay, that is enough for today. I hope to have some pictures for you tomorrow -- before and current -- so that you can visualize the extra third and get an idea of where I want to go.

Come on along for the journey! Care to join me? I'll try to entertain, tell a few stories, shoe some pictures, educate and share as I work toward becoming two-thirds of myself.

Won't you look over my shoulder?

Hello Pat;

I too have joined Weight Watchers to lose 1/3 of my weight. I'll be following you and maybe that will inspire me also. Keep up the good work!

I understand how you feel! I've been there. It took me so long to loose it, but it was worth it. You just feel better about life in general. Its nice to go to the closet and pick something that you know you might look sexy in!
I've kept my weight off now for one year, but it is a daily struggle. But the rewards are worth it.
Good luck and YOU GO GIRL!!

Right here with you, Pat!! I need to lose a little less than half, so you are not alone. Keep up the great work!!!

Pat, I just read your weight loss blog. I'm very inspired by your attitude. You and I have a lot in common. I, too, am struggling with weight issues. I just turned 50 and am about 40 lbs overweight (I'm 5'9"). At 23, I weight 118. My daughter is getting married in June, so I have incentive. I started my eating habit change (not a diet) the beginning of February and have lost 18 lbs. I had a knee replacement about 2.5 years ago and the extra weight definitely has put a strain on my knees (both of them). Keep up the good work with your weight loss. You are an inspiration for a lot of us.

Hey guys!

I know some folks here who have gotten results with Male-Extra penis enhancement pills. Im just about to order as i've been hearing amazing results with it. But first off, I want to know if Male Extra does it work as good as they say it does?

I know 1-2 inches Penis growth is realistic and easily accomplished. But I'd like REAL FAST penis growth in the 5 inches range. Dont laugh, I want to have the best penis growth possible because my new girlfriend dated a friggin porn stud!

Guys here know what im talking about?

I make that I NEED to know the best way to enlarge Penis. Male-extra pills promises 3 inches growth within several weeks or they return your money. So I guess that essentially means, if my penis dont grow real fast? They lose money, coz I got to use the pills at the same time get my money back right?

Does this seem like a scam?

Please reply at the soonest possible time!
I need to make a decision fast!

Im already sold on it to be honest, but I just need that one last push so I dont put this off any longer.

The advertisement for the pill I last saw at this site. I hope its still there.

K guys thanks. Hope to hear your feedback alright? Bye :D
