Weight...the enemy of most women!! WHY you ask? WHY well I have not idea why...WHY do we have to worry about what the scales say? WHY do we have to worry about what size dress or pants we wear? WHY....media and people always telling us that you can look better...you can do better...you can be better!!

Sometimes I just get sick of all of that!!! I have struggled with weight most of my life.

We women have babies and then try to get to looking like we used too...MOST of us have a time trying to do that. Then there are some very fortunate women who just pop right back into looking just like they did before they were pregnant...These are the lucky ones..then there was ME!!

But now the tide is changing!!! About 4 months ago my friend and I joined CURVES. I have tried Weight Watchers and several other ways to lose weight in all of these years. I decided to try one more time. At my age (60) it is just getting HARDER and HARDER to do!!

I have been going "faithfully" and trying to be careful eating and guess what.. TODAY I have now lost 10 lbs. and 10 inches!! I am so happy!! I was so surprised this morning when I weighed in that I CRIED!! I know that sounds dumb to a lot of you skinny minnies out there but not to me!! I have tried for the past 15 years to lose and now I am doing it...YES Actually doing it for a change!!

If there is a CURVES in your area...which I bet there is...you need to run not walk down there and sign up. Then start going regularly and putting everything you have into it. You will feel better and in time be healthier for it. I know that my self esteem is doing a WHOLE lot better.

I cannot wait to see my clothes fitting looser!!
