WW Week One is History

Friday, February 22, 2013

After looking at the scale last month and realizing that I have gained what I had worked so hard to lose - I succumbed to the last resort to lose weight. I joined Weight Watchers. WW had helped my mom and sister lose weight in the past but I always said NO to joining. I always convinced myself that I knew how to eat and didn't need to go weekly to hear some women talk about their "Success Stories" and get weighed in. Well, I joined last week and in one week on WW I lost 4 whopping pounds! I am ecstatic! I actually committed myself to going weekly and getting weighed and sticking around for the meeting afterward. I have learned MANY things in only 2 sessions about how to snack correctly and learned tricks about portion sizes. My only regret is that it's taken so long for me to join! I love the fact that I must be held accountable for stepping on that dreaded scale! I am allotted a certain number of Points each day and I must stick to those Point values...which I have faithfully! The coolest thing about WW is the app that is available on smart phones. It is awesome! I enter in all of my food/drink intake on this app and it is really cool! It also has a calculator which can give me the # of Points in any given food item. It even has a barcode scanner which I use when I do my grocery shopping which gives out the Points in any given item! Really amazing!

I just had to write a quick blog about this journey that I am on and I just hope that I keep up with my tracking and losing the weight!

    I'm glad you joined WW and are finding success with it!
There is nothing wrong with seeking out a little help in life. Remember, those who seek help are stronger than those that sit confused!
Or something like that...I just made that up, LOL!

    There is an even easier way to track with the WW app too. You can take a pic of your food. It calculates the points from that!

    Good for you! My sister and niece have had excellent success with WW. My sister goes back for a "tune-up" as a lifetime member every once in a while if she gains a few pounds. So, she nips it in the bud before she really slides.
