Signed up for Weight Watchers on 9/8/13


Thursday, September 12, 2013

I've been obese most of my adult life and I can easily say I've used dozens of weight loss programs to try to overcome this. The diets work. It's my will power and motivation that fail, not the science behind the diets. The science isn't that complicated. Apparently my fickle emotions are, though.

In my latest attempt at weight loss, I decided to throw out everything I've ever done (including SparkPeople.com's diet; sorry, guys!) and try Weight Watchers Online. After the signup fee, it is about $5 a week and I can cancel any time. This was my 4th day. Honestly, I can't imagine any diet program easier than this! The mobile tracking app makes the whole process amazingly simple. Yesterday, I got worried about it being so easy and satisfying and decided I must be doing something wrong. I had originally wanted to wait until the weekly weigh-in this coming Sunday, but figured I needed to satisfy my curiosity more. Sure enough, I'd lost weight! Counting points is a new world for me, but so far, I think I like it!

So, my beginning weight is 247.4 lbs and I'd like to get down to 155 lbs. That's my first goal anyway. That will bring me down to the highest I can be in the "normal" range for my height. I haven't seen the 150s for 15 years.

Here's to all of us who refuse to give up for long!

  Thanks for the advice, Alicia! I agree that it's a good idea to set smaller goals to celebrate that keep you on the path to the big one. Weight Watchers does too, I guess, since they set my first goal at 235 lbs. I'm feeling confident I can do that!

You might find it easier if you concentrate on a smaller target weight like
five lbs, you will feel so good about that loss that it will encourage you to keep going, I find that works for me.I hope you will keep in touch I would
like to know how you are doing.
