My last meeting was Thursday night...I did not make a big deal about it, didn't tell the leader I was leaving. One of the ladies sat by me and announced that she was ready to quit WW, she wasn't losing any weight, and paying a lot of money to not see any progress, same old story. Another woman, who had made 'lifetime' was telling me what she eats on a typical day and it was not something I could ever do -- all kinds of WW foods and energy bars. She was buying about 6 boxes of the WW snack bars (she does this every week). I'm sorry, but it just seemed so clear to me that WW can certainly help you lose weight - from your wallet.
I will miss the leader, she was so nice. I won't miss the lady who insisted on making me her friend and I know she will harass me when she doesn't see me there (we work in the same company). I won't miss the dread of stepping on a scale in front of someone else and having her make a remark about how well or poorly I did that week (everything focuses on that stupid scale -- maybe I had on a bulky top one week so that made me gain).
I have a sense of freedom now. Less accountability perhaps, but I can come on Spark and record my weight (my real weight, first thing in the morning in my birthday suit) and my friends and others will offer me support and cheer me on and inspire me. I'm ready to do this on my own and I will succeed!
