I went to my Weight Watchers meeting on Thursday. I was up .. again. The simple fact is ...... I weigh 235 pounds and have not budged from that weight in 19 weeks. I have stayed the same. Lose 4 .. up 2 ... lose 3 ... up 1 ... lose 1 ... up 1 ... blah blah blah. That's how it's been going for me since December 17th, 2012 when I joined. I weighed in at 236 lbs ... and now I weigh 235. A ONE POUND loss. So sad.
At the beginning of the meeting, my WW leader handed out weight loss ribbons to 3 individuals. One woman had lost 35 pounds! Another had lost 40 pounds! And the last lady to come forward had lost an astounding ONE HUNDRED POUNDS! The applause in the room lasted for a good five minutes.
Yet, here I was. Sitting in the same meeting room week after week after week. Nothing changing. Others were having great successes all around me, and I was still the same.
"What is wrong with ME? Why are they getting it and I'M not?" "I want this just as much as they do? I want to lose weight like them.... but why am I failing at this?"
I have yet to find the answers.
