I am stubborn and hard headed and I cannot do it alone...

So, my pride is going by the wayside and I (along with some co-workers) am joining Weight Watchers this week. Hating to admit all the weight I have gained and hating even more the looks in some of the pictures (there are reason why I post few of me on here), I have decided to suck it up and admit that I cannot and have not done it by myself. Sure there are purely vain reasons on why I should drop a few lbs, but I am looking at the miscarriage as a sign. I told my doctor this summer at my routine check up that I wanted to lose 50 pounds. We both agreed that was a good goal so that I could control my blood pressure (which has been on the rise) and my diabetes (trying to control before a full blown diagnosis). Both of these were important to control before I get pregnant again. I may not know what caused the MC, but I am taking it as a sign from the Great One himself and that taking care of me needs to be a priority.
I am mentioning all this because I need to be held accountable. We are all going to the meetings together and will have a little friendly competition. It will be great to see who loses the most. It will be hard with the holidays coming up ( I am craving my momma's Party Mix as I type), but will keep in mind that moderation is the key. We are also going to start walking and I will be using my Wii Fit on a daily basis.
I am tempted to post some Pre Pictures on here just for more fuel, but that is depressing. Most readers see me anyway, so you know how I look.
Wish me luck!!! Amy suggestions, ideas, comments are appreciated!
