My first Blog!

I have decided to post a blog so that all of you may join me in my weight loss journey. With the help of Google and my wonderful husband, I begin this blog...

My name is Jessica and I am an over eater. There I said it! I am currently on a quest to conquer this bad habit. I am doing Weight Watchers, which is a great program. Thus far I have lost 32.4 pounds. I have been on this journey my entire life, but in April 2007 I began to get serious. My husband is an amazing encouragement! He is always telling me that he loves me, weight loss or not. But I must say there is nothing like seeing his proud smile when I come home on Thursdays after my weight watcher meetings and tell him I have lost!

I must admit there is a part of me that is scared. Why? you ask. Well this is who I have been all my life. I have always been the"fat friend". It is what I know. I wonder if I will still be me, do I really know who "me" is? Will I still make people laugh or will I loose all my funniness when I loose the weight?

Ok, well I suppose this will be it for my first entry. Thanks to all who are sharing in this journey. It helps to share this as it keeps me accountable.

Good luck to you! I learned about your blog from the Weight Watcher board. I wish you lots of luck in your journey! I know from experience that it's a long one and it gets a little tiring at times, but the end result is sooooo worth it!

God Bless,
