10 lbs gone and goodbye 230's?

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

i'm doing really well these days and realized i haven't updated in awhile. i started weight watchers at the beginning of the month. i had been avoiding it for so long due to monetary reasons. one of the biggest reasons i love sparkpeople, it's FREE! but free wasn't working for me. i have done ww in the past and lost about 40 lbs. which i obviously gained back. anyway, i figured if i wasn't going to invest in myself i wasn't going to get anywhere. and the money would probably just go to junk food and alcohol. so i bucked up and signed up for a great deal i found on a 6-month membership.
i'm doing so well! i lost 10 lbs in my first week and hope to be out of the 230s when i weigh in this weekend. i only lost .2 last week due to TOM, but that's better than the 2 lbs i usually gain.
i think the meetings are what's making the difference for me. the face-to-face interaction is keeping me in line. i'm not just answering to myself like when i was doing this all online. i guess i need more motivation and involvement to be accountable.
plus i don't have to track anything or weigh the food. i just eat off a specific list and go for it. my dream come true!

    WW meetings sure made the difference for me. Some of us need other people, and I'm grateful that WW offers both a Plan and the support to reach a goal.

    That's awesome! Sounds like the in person, social contact is what you've been missing. Keep up the good work!
