I read a very inspiring blog that TIMOTHYNOHE wrote about his success with WW and lately I have been feeling that urge to join. I just don't know...I remember being so dedicated when I did it about 10 years ago and it not working. Oh, wait.....I don't think that's what actually happened.
I remember deciding to join when I was about 22 or 23 bc my cousin had such success with it and I was anxious to get in shape for my wedding. I went to meetings followed the points, carried that points book and points converter slider with me everywhere. I remember working out all the time.
Yeah, no, that's not how is was at all. I like to remember it went like that.....
I went to the gym about once a week and walked on the treadmill for about 20 min. I didn't even break a sweat.
I complained that I was always hungry....well maybe bc I used all my points for mac and cheese and Chinese food. I usually had no points left by like 3pm.
I complained bc I wasn't losing weight.....yeah.....after weigh ins I would head to the nearest restaurant and binge my little heart out. I probably ate about three days worth of calories in a sitting and no, I'm not joking.
I complained an awful lot during my time with WW, but I know I truly didn't put my heart in it and I didn't work hard at it.
I was at least 199 on my wedding day and I am 182 today. I've gotten down to 150 before and I need to get down to that again to be healthy and not to mention happier.
Thanks for reading and the support as always!
