On July 8, 2005, I wrote the following on my family blog,
Weight Watchers Week 1
Most people know I’m slightly weight obsessed. Well being pregnant has put me back to my all time highest weight. I’m not that depressed about it considering the little gift I got from gaining all of it! Anyway, as soon as I could I joined Weight Watchers and I finished my first week yesterday. Happy to say I was down 6lbs! For a total of 38 since Ryan was born. It will be a long journey but I’m up for it. I may add a Weight Watchers section tracking my progress and sharing recipes, especially since a few people I know are also following the same diet. We’ll see.
Over the course of the next 11 years that “Weight Watchers section” changed my life. I lost the weight and gained so much more.
I don’t even know how to summarize Roni’s Weigh here.
“From Fat to Skinny to Healthy” is a curated collection of posts from Roni’s Weigh that will inspire you to take control of your health and teach you how to begin your own fitness journey. It’s full of practical, down-to-earth advice you can start applying to your life today.”
I remember not being that excited about this book because it seemed cheesy. Why put blog posts in a book when people could just access them online? Now, however, I’m happy it exists as I had to take down Roni’s Weigh for financial reasons.
If you remember a particular post or want a resource, I shared don’t hesitate to ask. I’ll do my best to pull it out of the archive I have offline and re-share it. Just reach out on Facebook, Twitter or IG.
