    Pat my wife is doing WW and its a good program easy to follow. Shes lost about 30 so far. Just dont get discouraged and keep up your spirits (which I know you can do that LOL). Youll be to your desired weight before you know it.

    Good luck, Pat, you can do it! I have the faith, plus I know it can be done, I've lost 50 lbs myself. I'd still like to shed a few more, so I'll be working at it right alongside ya, 'cept here in NC of course :big_smile:. Positive thoughts and prayers coming your way for a successful weight loss program. Don't know if you know the history of Curves, but the gentleman who founded the company is truly concerned about women's health issues. His mother was obese and died at 40 years old. That is where his motivation comes from, and Curves franchises are popping up like wildflowers all over the country! Go for it, girl! :smile2:

    Good luck with Weightwatchers Pat!
    I have special feelings for people losing weight. I've fought being over weight most of my life.

    I think Tea has inspired several people. I know he did my granddaughter.. I sent her some of his post and then she said she was going to go for it. She has lost 16 lbs and still going strong.

    My MRI's revealed that i have a severe case of bursites in my Right knee and I have a catch in my right hip like it wants to give out.Doctor said nothing surgical could be done however getting the weight off would probably help alot.I go in the Morning to get an injection of steroid into my knee plus get on my WW meal plans and then God Willing start Curves on Monday.Tanya I didn't know any history at all about Curves so thank you for sharing.Thank you all for your support I really appreciate you all very much.:smile2:

    Pat,

    I wish you all the best! You deserve nothing less. Yes, Tea has inspired alot of us to get up and get moving! All the more helps. I also commend you for opening up and allowing all of us here on the BOC to know about this challenge. Your a bigger person than I for doing that!

    You will be in my thoughts :wink: I know that with a drive and determination you can achieve anything you set your mind too.

    You go girl! Woohoo:cool2:
