There’s something about me and Weight Watchers. I just can’t stay away.
I’ve written about my relationship with Weight Watchers before. At that time, I was determined that it was the LAST TIME and it was GOING TO WORK. Then, I got accepted into the weight loss contest and that worked really well. When it ended, I decided I could do this on my own and decided my on-again relationship with WW was now off.
And then I gained 11 pounds.
Clearly I need help. The accountability of having my weight published in a newspaper was incredible. It worked like a charm. This time, my weight won’t be in the paper, but I will post my meeting weight every single week here, and I’ll be going to meetings with my mom. She’s so annoyingly DILIGENT about the whole journaling thing, and I know my competitive nature will come out and make me want to lose more weight than her. Competition is a good thing!
The title of this post contains a question mark because I have absolutely no idea how many times I’ve joined Weight Watchers, but I know it’s in the double digits. And I know I lost at least 10 pounds each time–and 45 pounds the first time. That means I’ve lost (and gained) at least 130 pounds. I want to barf. If I had just lost it all in one go, I’d be 110 pounds now–TOO skinny.
Instead, I’m twice that.
Will it work this time? If I choose to make it work, it will–and I will. I need to, for my health, so I can have a baby someday, so I can go shopping, so I can feel proud. The benefits are so worth the work–and I know that for a fact. There’s no reason NOT to do this.
In conjunction with Weight Watchers, I’ll be starting Couch to 5K for my 5K on September 18th. Hopefully, between the two, I’ll see some real results!
Anyone else on Weight Watchers? I’d love to know your favorite snacks and what you typically have for lunch!
