Remodel - Before and After Pictures

The Before pictures

 We "remodeled" ourselves and not our home.
Tom and I have lost weight.

 Both of us are turning 60 and we wanted to give each other something special.
Not a ring, or car, or trip but health!
We joined Weight Watchers last August.
Every Saturday morning we get up and go weigh in. 
Every Saturday morning we go home pleased.
I feels great!

Now the After Pictures...

Last January I freaked when I weight myself.
I couldn't believe I had gotten so heavy.
At that moment, I knew I wanted to have my sixtieth birthday as the goal.
You know, "By my birthday I want to loose (fill in the blank)".
That meant I had one whole year to loose the weight. Easy!
No it wasn't.
It was going so s-l-o-w  and time was not on my side.
To help me, I plastered the number 60 all over our home.
I had them everywhere.
They were put up as a reminder to work on loosing weight before my birthday.
One day, Tom asked me about all the numbers.
So I told Tom my pathetic story.
He looked me in the eyes and said,
 "Let's join Weight Watcher!"
That was about 4 1/2 months ago.

As of today I have dropped three dress sizes.
That's about 30 pounds!

Guess what today is?
It's my birthday and I made it!
I am a happier and healthier me.

I'm Sixty and a size Sassy!

Tom and I have taken off on another
 road trip to celebrate.
 When we come back
I'll be ready for Christmas.
