As I read this post, I found a handful of things that I can personally relate to. I too was just under 250 pounds at my highest weight before being introduced to Weight Watchers. I had also allowed myself to buy into many gimmicks over the years to make an attempt at losing weight--with some temporary success, but never found what really worked. I had been a member of Spark People for a few years, and I'd experienced success with it too--when I used the tracking tools--but I didn't always have internet access, so learning the tracking method of WW was a great thing for me, because all I needed was a pencil, a small notebook, and my food book...which a rarely consult anymore, because I know the points of most of the foods I eat--but my resources are always there when I have something new :)

When I was a teenager, I loved horseback riding with one of my girlfriends, and once I had kids, they loved getting together with her for rides. On the last ride with her, it was almost impossible..I had to use the bumper of a truck to climb onto the horse, because I couldn't do it on my own :( It was depressing, and I didn't make time to do this activity anymore. My kids missed out on that, because I was too heavy. My friend has since had kids of her own, and with mounting responsibilities on her farm, made the decision to sell the horses, because she no longer had time to give them the attention that she felt they deserved.

I still long to go horseback riding again, but I don't have access to the opportunity. Maybe on a vacation I can visit a stable and have that joy again!
