Tell Us A Little Bit About Your Weight Struggle
After retiring from 30 years at General Motors I found myself almost 200 lbs. I wasn’t doing much but watching tv and snacking. Not good! I had been to Weight Watchers 3 times before, making goal twice but not doing the 6 weeks maintenance to reach lifetime, (thought I could do it on my own). Then after stepping on the scale January 2007 I said enough is enough and got back to Weight Watchers for the last time. I lost 50 lbs and have kept 45 off, and I needed it so much I became a receptionist in October 2007 and I’m still there. It has not always been easy but if you want something bad enough anything is possible.
