Hey Vanessa your week looks great! And I know you had a lot of success on weight watchers before - so I think something sexy this time around will be no problem! :-)

Vanessa, I'm so glad you are finding that WW allows you to have some balance this time around! Really if you are feeling deprived all the time it's hard to be enthusiastic about a plan. You know - I used to keep a flat of bottled water in the car (when it's above freezing) so I could reach back and grab a bottle when I was out running around. It made it so much easier to keep up my water on the weekends!

OMG - I'm speachless! That's quite the week you had last week! You've started back with a vengence! I'm sure you'll be shopping for your sexy wedding dress in no time!

I'm going to need to look to your journal for inspiration...I've missplaced my will power somewhere over the holidays and you certainly have it going on!
