Do you want to lose 10, 30, 50 or more pounds? Have you recently reached your weight loss goal but want to maintain it? Are you willing to dedicate yourself to a healthy lifestyle? Then this blog is for you!

I have lost 118 pounds and have maintained the weight loss for two years. One of the things I have learned during the weight loss process is that it is much easier to reach and maintain your goal weight if you surround yourself with like-minded individuals to support you in the process (whether they be in person or online).

I also have learned that learning as much as possible about healthy living gives you the knowledge and expertise needed to lose weight the “right” way. So this blog includes regular posts, a book list, website list, TV list, video list and book and website of the month. In addition, there is a recipe of the month and product review section. Visitors to Weight Loss Aficionado can just enjoy the site for informational purposes or can comment on posts, ask questions, share resources, their triumphs and pitfalls during the weight loss process.

If I Lose 1 Pound Each Week This Year!

A friend shared this poem with me. How brilliant it is!


By Valentine's Day I'd be 7 lbs. lighter
I'm loving it!

By St. Patrick's Day I'd be 11 lbs. lighter!
With the luck of-the Irish I'll make my goal.

By Easter I'd be 16 lbs. lighter!
I'd be a cuter bunny.

By Memorial Day I'd be 23 lbs. lighter!
Won't let it rain on my parade.

By Flag Day I'd be 25 lbs. lighter!
Boy, could I wave my flag then.

By Independence Day I'd be 27 lbs. lighter!
That's a neat declaration of independence from overeating!

By Labor Day I'd be 36 lbs. lighter!
What a wonderful reward for all my hard work.

By Columbus Day I'd be 41 lbs. lighter!
What a joy to discover what I can do.

By Halloween I'd be 44 lbs. lighter!
I didn't think I had a ghost of a chance.

By Thanksgiving I'd be 47 lbs. lighter!
I'd have so much to be thankful for.

By Christmas Eve I'd be 51 lbs. lighter!
Talk about being merry.

By New Year's Eve I'd be 52 lbs. lighter!
It's not just a new year, it's a new ME!

* If you shoot for losing just 1 pound a week you can lose 52 pounds in a year!
