Signing up for Weight Watchers and the 100+ Message Boards is one of the best things I have ever done for my journey to permanent weight loss and a complete mind change (Romans 12:2). The 100+ Boards has made the biggest impact. I learn so much. Some of my favorites that have motivated me are Sputnik Deb, and Allison Jean.
I long to be thin enough to look good in rockabilly and pin-up girl curve hugging dresses and skirts. Baby Girl Boutique does have fat girl sizes, but I want to be a pin-up girl. When I reach my goal weight of 180 lbs that will be my reward to myself. A pin-up girl tattoo on my back.

After my first 8 months on Weight Watchers the honeymoon was over. No more 10-13 lb. losses per month. I tried everything to get the scale to move. My moods were dictated by what the plastic box said. I could go from happy to sad with one LCD screen read. One thing I did was got rid of my scale. I became a slave to it, and it became my adversary. Weighing myself dozens of times a day. Trust me. A measuring tape, if you must evaluate yourself numerically, is a little more acurate.
