New Year, New Me, New 'tude

On Monday, January 4th I broke up with my boyfriend.. no not Chuck he's still here... I broke up with the Dr in my life. The one who was there for me through thick and thin. Unfortunately ALOT more thick than thin... :o/ Of course I am discussing Dr Pepper. And yes I know he has a wicked step brother named Diet Dr Pepper but we will never date (I am allergic to aspartame) so now I am dating Mr Lipton and the guy with the fancy name (H2O...oooo exotic) I have lost a whopping 5 lbs. (Don't hate its something right?)

I decided after seeing pictures of me at Thanksgiving and looking like this:

It was time for a change. It was time for me to take my tail out of the other zipcode it has been residing in. I am in the for the long haul. I refuse to call this a diet because diets don't work, instead this is a life style change. I am back on Weight Watchers, this guy be damned:

I am gonna beat him!!
My daily life has changed no longer do I reach for a twinkie when I want a snack, I am eating a 100 calorie snack... (hello Pop Secret I love you!! Kettle corn 100 calorie snack, hello Wheat thins 100 calorie snack, welcome to my world!) I have had five salads this year that pretty much eclipses what I ate last year (No, I am not kidding) I love that when we went to Walmart today, I was not lagging behind my speed demon husband I was with him step for step. AFTER one week.

We managed to get our Wii replaced and I play Wii sports daily, for 30 minutes. And yes somedays it still kicks my ass but I get up and do it! Its important for me!! This picture was supposed to be of my feet:

but I have not seen them in a long time, every month I vow to take a picture of my feet. Eventually, I hope they reappear in this picture, cause hey I have nice feet, see!!

I hope you follow me on this weight loss journey, I am gonna do it this time I mean it!!! I just wish it was this easy:
