So... Weight Watchers came to my workplace at the end of last year. I liked the accountability of weighing in with someone(some weeks more than others), and the group at work was really great for talking through tough things, and getting ideas.
Not to mention having a "meeting" Friday at lunch hour has kept me away from some dangerous restaurants... :)
We weren't able to get enough people for the 3 week 'bumper' session, and it looks as if getting 15 people for a new series by next Friday is borderline. (If I join, we'll need 3 more.)
The decision boils down to: how badly do I want to make lifetime?
If I don't care, I take my losses and go. (I'm thinking I care...)
If I want it and WW@W happens, that's the relatively easy part.
If I want it and WW@W doesn't happen, I'll need to go to my local center, probably doing the monthly pass until I reach goal.
If I'm able to do it directly, I'm about 10 weeks away - 4 lb loss plus 6 weeks maintenance. My leader thinks I can do it - I was as low as 161 at one point, and my goal is 159. Friday I 'unofficially' weighed in at 163.
If not, the saga stretches out longer. The at work session is 13 weeks long with one blackout, making it 14 actual weeks.
So, the down side? ...I think my hesitation is because I'm not 100% sure I would go without it being at work. I'm lazy. If I'm not going to go, I shouldn't spend the money to make lifetime.
I think I'm going to post over at the WW boards, get some more input. My leader was very supportive, thought I should do it because not a whole lot of people would continue w/o support or motivation of some sort; she even gave me a couple of names of good leaders in the area and offered to join my on my first 'nonwork' visit. It was very sweet! Tara, thank you! =)
Thanks for reading my thinking-out of this... :)
