I'm saving $40.00 a month and losing it my way

Friday, June 22, 2012

In the past I usually try to change my lifestyle and want to stick with a plan to lose weight. I always let distractions in my life get me off track and then I'm back where I started. I've tried so many plans, but none has really worked for me except- Weight Watchers. The program always had me losing weight and I get so confident with my weight loss that I feel I can lose it on my own.
I stopped going to the meetings and I felt better that I didn't have to pay for it anymore. Two weeks on my own I will stick with the program, then I start slacking and slowly the weight is coming back on. The cycle starts over again. I join, I quit, I join and then quit and .....

This time I said I will lose without a membership and do my own plan.
I will Watch my own Weight and not have to pay for the loss.

Now I am in charge. I am in control. I am happy to say that
I have lost 10 pounds on my own.
I saved a total of $80.00 so far. Every month I will put $40.00 away because that is how much it cost for the monthly membership.

Spark people has really motivated me. I have tried several times in the past to use this site,but never stayed on board,but this time
I am really enjoying this site. It's great to read so many goals from other people in this community.

You can never get bored on this site. There's so much to do.
One thing that I am about to participate in starting tomorrow is the 5% Summer Challenge. I have a very busy schedule, but I am determine to
complete this challenge.
But If I don't succeed, I'll just dust myself off and Try Again.

Never Give Up.

    Wishing you the best of luck! I find that without the meetings, I flop... I'm weak... I like the idea of buying yourself mani/pedi's, though. Go for it!

    Sounds like you're going by the good plan of your own and like annev2012 says put that money away for something good for yourself... like a trip or new clothes or something.

    I don't know how much weight you want to lose, but put that $40 away every month and buy something wonderful with it after a few months. Or treat yourself to a massage, manicure or pedicure every month (even if you have some 'out of pocket' additions to make to the $40

    In any case, good luck on your journey.
