So, here I am again joining Weight Watchers. This is probably the 6th or 7th time I've joined - maybe even more (I've lost count). I keep joining because I know that it works. When I was using the program years ago during an at-work session, I lost the most weight I ever have and I felt incredible. Since then, I've put on all of the weight I've lost and them some. I got married about 2 months ago and I'm very sad to say that I've gained at least 10 lbs since then. I really don't know where it came from - I feel like I ballooned the moment I said "I Do". As many times as I've said today will be the day I start to eat better, that lasts about 4 hours. Then we go out to lunch at work or I forget my lunch at home so I go by some fast food. There's always tomorrow I say. After a dreadful morning of figuring out what to wear to work, and getting frustrated because not one pair of the 5 pairs of pants in my closet were even close to fitting, I went on to berate myself for being fat. Definitely not positive motivation to lose weight. As I drove to work this morning, I knew that I NEEDED to make a change. I needed to come back to this program and to take charge of my life. Summer's here and there's no excuse for why I can't lose the weight. Sure it's hot outside, but I belong to a gym. Or I can go walk the dogs after dinner at night. And with summer, there's always fresh fruit in season - and what better reason to eat it with it being 0 pts! Looking forward to a new me. No matter what I've learned in the past or what I think I know about the program, I am going into this starting fresh. YOU CAN DO IT!!
