I know for ME, if I don't do it for myself, it does not usually work. And that goes for anything. I have to do things because it is best for me, now I am not saying that in a selfish way, but if it is not something that I truelly feel is good or for the best (in God's eyes) the results are not as good as they could be.
Now, as for me and losing weight, I am doing it slow but it is coming off. Right now I am still recovering from surgery, so I can't do much except walk. But that is fine for now, I am watching what I eat so that is good too. (I LOVE junk food!!)
When I think/pray about loosing weight and I am doing it for the correct reason, to get me healthy, then it works. But if I am doing it for the wrong reason, then I may loose, but it comes right back on.
So what I am saying is, you have to get your head on right and it can work. Now with saying that, my head is on right about 75% of the time. That is better than the 25% it use to be. I am getting there. And you can too!!!
When I am having a bad day, I just remember that God made me for a reason and that he has plans for me. That helps to get my head back on the correct track.
Keep going!!!! WE ARE WORTH IT!!!!!
Blessings are coming your way!! Rhonda

DIBRN5 ... I think it is awesome they have WW at your workplace ... I would think it would be nice to have the program itself and also support from coworkers on the same journey :) And by all means, do it for YOU, it won't work if you don't. Like Rhonda said, remember YOU are worth it :)

Same with me. I have also started and stopped. I am also doing WW because they are offering at my place of work. I am very glad. I need to be more accountable. I also need to kick this depressed mood and live for myself. I have been basing a lot of my feelings and moods on a significant person in my life. I need to do it for me!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you for the welcome back :) And I think that you are doing great with a 4 lb loss in less than a month ... especially if you don't have a lot to lose. Those last pounds are the hardest to come off. And actually, slow and steady is better because it's more likely to stay off :) Good luck and best wishes to you on your journey!

I have been a member of SP on multiple occasions before but have, for different reasons at different times, left the program. I have also been a paying member of Weight Watchers since March of 2012 and have lost 25 lbs there. But I have hit a wall, been stalled out since October, and my frustration levels were getting high. So instead of quitting, like I would usually do, I have decided to combine WW with SP, and also in solid footing with God, to form my perfect 'team'. So here I am back again! And I'm sure I will need lots of help and support and encouragement, and I have plenty to offer in return, so feel free to add me as a friend, and I will do likewise, and we can all do this together!
