"BELIEVE because it works"

I know I just had a baby 7 weeks ago so no one needs to remind me when I say I am starting Weight Watchers (WW) next week to help me lose the babies weight. The reason I say babies is because I'm still holding onto 25 extra pounds from being pregnant with Mya too. My kids are 21 months and 18 months apart. I'm hoping to get a break from being pregnant so that I can drop this extra weight and feel good, become the athlete I use to be. I have 45 lbs to lose. I am excited to get back to that healthy weight because when I see myself in the mirror now I see a beautiful woman but I'd love to see a fit mama looking back at me. Does that make sense?

The reason I chose Weight Watchers is because I've done it before back in 2007-2008 right before I got married. I loved it! I lost the weight and felt in control.
Here's what I looked like before three babies:

Now this is my most recent picture. It was taken last week with my cousins at the Unity Festival.
What I look like these days:

So here's what I'm hoping to do. I would like to post at least every other week about my weight loss journey. I have a hard time remembering sometimes so if someone wants me to update a picture of my progress then let me know. I'm making the change and hoping to make it perminate.

So here's to making the change! Wish me luck.
