Caryl W

Beautful card! Good luck on your weight loss journey!!

Susan, aka Soozie4Him on SCS

Hi Jan! I'm proud of you for starting WW! I did it for the first time back when my oldest daughter got engaged. I lost about 25 pounds. The plan WORKS when you follow it, and I think the program just keeps getting better and better! I also think you'll be successful because you haven't been a yo-yo dieter like me. I've been on WW officially a number of times since 2000, and last year I did SparkPeople just because I was tired of "points". I've lost and regained the same 25 pounds a number of times and I need to just lost all I need to lose and get 'er done! But of course it's a lifestyle too, not just a once and for all thing. I also identify with you "feeling" more overweight and the need to do this now. I feel the same way, but things keep getting in the way. If you feel so inclined, please share your WW story and you can inspire your readers who could use some inspiration! You've always been an inspiration in the creative sphere - now I look forward to more inspiration! If you have any good recipes, please share! I KNOW you will do a great job with this!

Hugs to you, my friend!

Best of luck to you!!

Hi Jan,
As always your creations are just great!...thanks for sharing your thyroid/diet story. Like you I have a thyroid issue and thus carry more weight that I like or tolerate. I was on synthroid for years, however I switched to Armour Thyroid about 1 1/2 yrs ago and I feel that I have a better handle on my weight. Regardless, is definitely hard work keeping weight off ... research Armour maybe it can help in your journey.
All my best,

Lorena :)
