Well ladies I finally found it! The perfect TOPS chapter! I joined last week, it's an old school chapter, which is exactly what I was looking for. The ladies are wonderful, fun loving, and so supportive. Plus, I lost 5 and a quarter pounds this past week! I was so excited when I stepped on that scale. I went to my Dr. and got my goal slip, he wants me at 160. So I'm really going to put my best effort into this.

I found this picture of me, and couldn't believe what I was looking at! Is this really me!!? Yes it is, and take a good look now because my after pictures will be totally different. Of course here, it's evening and I'm not in my best attire, nor am I made up! But I'll show you anyway, that sad looking person is on her way out, to be replaced by the more healthy, beautiful woman within!
