    Your 'Aha' weight-loss moments

    The New Me


    Two years ago this week I was sitting at home with my sister who was sick with cancer at the time. We saw a commercial for Weight Watchers and she said " Elaine, you and I need to join together." I said sure I'll try it again as I have before. I had tried numerous times to lose weight and couldn't get any where. Here I am two years later and I have loss 183lbs. My sister had now passed but I owe it all to her. Brenda (my deceased sister) gave me the motivation I needed to get up and finally do something about my weight even as she was dying. My life has done a tremendous turn around and I'm healthier than ever.
