I don't mind cliché

I know it’s a cliché, but I decided to start my weight loss program on January 1st. I joined Weight Watchers but am finding their online program a little tough. Part of the reason I have weight issues is that I don’t know how to cook healthy food. I need some healthy recipes to follow, to build up a repertoire of healthy options. Well, I’ve been unable to figure out how to access recipes. Plus, they didn’t actually give me a menu to follow! WTF? What kind of diet is that? The thing that they made super easy was counting points. I’ve been tracking my points, and doing really well with that. So, I’ve been looking for recipes on my own, online then imputing the information into the Points Tracker. So far I haven’t felt too hungry, so I guess so far so good.

As for my exercise, well I’m going to start with my elliptical, 60 minutes Monday through Friday. Also I’ve been reading a woman’s blog who loves The Firm Body Sculpting System DVDs. So, I ordered a bunch of those and will incorporate them into my workouts on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. I hope that will suffice for the weight/resistance portion of my workouts for now.

I’ll weigh-in on Fridays and will be sure to post at least weekly until I leave for Fitness Ridge. Once I’m at FR I’ll try to post daily, though I may be too tired sometimes.


  1. The Firm Videos will definitley be great for strength training!! I'm using Jillian Michael's 30 day Shred and it is KILLER but I love it! The Eating for Life cookbook is my go to love for clean, healthy meals. Look at it in Half Price Books. It's awesome!! Great job on getting started.

  2. Thanks for the info. I'll look for the book. I do have Jillian Michael's 30 day Shred but am just not there yet. I couldn't get through 10 minutes of it, but I'll get there eventually.

  3. Keep up the great work DeeAnn. I too have been a WW member and the site takes some getting used to but you'll pick it up in no time.
