Yesterday I registered for Weight Watchers At Work. We're going to have a 12-week program starting next Thursday and running through May. It's time to get excited about this! The highest weight at which I can have a healthy BMI is 154, but according to Weight Watchers my goal should be 124-148. So, I guess I will aim for 148 and see what happens. Won't it be wonderful if I can hit 154 by the end of this 12-week program! By then it will be spring and I will be able to look nice in warm-weather clothes. I know it will be hard work, but I need to do this for lifelong health.
I'd like to really start using SparkPeople to its full advantage. I joined the Weight Watchers Friends team yesterday and got several welcoming messages. I love the weight ticker and am looking forward to entering my lower weight. Writing in my blog is energizing. I'm not sure whether I will track my eating and exercise. I'm pretty sure Weight Watchers will make me track my points - I wonder if I can do that here. I guess I could track my exercise too. I'm actually not that bad at exercise - sometimes. I just need to keep it up. Especially since the time of day I go - late afternoon - is a hard time for my willpower with food.
I just need to keep myself motivated. I will need to keep myself making the right choices every hour of every day of every week, even when I don't feel like it. I need to accept that there are times that I don't feel like keeping it up, but I gotta do it anyway. I have to adjust my attitude and accept the fact that the rewards of losing weight are greater than any I might hope to gain by continuing my unhealthy habits.
