So WW did not really work for me...

Saturday, October 12, 2013

So to be brief because I lack the time I need, WW did not work for me. I say that cause in the beginning like all new programs I was excited and I had it down....then team leaders changed, meetings stunk and my life got a little more hectic with acting like a parent to a little old 12 yr old dog. Don't get me wrong I love the responsibility (only for the dog- NO KIDS!!!). However the rewards that came and went at meetings seemed to be inconsistant. I went to one somewhere else after I did a 10K and she gave me a charm, I did a 5K and somehow I managed to get another charm, but with all of my additional athletic events, never once did I get another charm for ANYTHING at the location I had to use most. Then as my 10 year anniversary got closer and closer I made some comment about how it helped me stay on track and I feel I got reemed from the leader I did not really care for. Then came and went our awesome anniversary trip and I never really worked on the weight again. I would go eat a fast food breakfast after weigh-in and it tasted SO GOOD! The food never judged me in fact it made me feel there I was again back in my old ways again. Pound after pound crept back up, somewhere around August I decided losing 45+ dollars was enough!!!! It just felt like a money game with them and I did not get that community I was hoping for. By that time I had come from 219 or so (February) back to 240 ish (August) Actually I am pretty sure I had stopped going to meetings....

Well i am sure it works for others but apparently what works for me is out there still. Not much else to say except I think I am heading back down the scale again and that is a good and positive feeling for me. There also is a huge weight loss community here and many of us talkign about getting skinny or healthy or I realized yes I would rather be skinny except where I am today, but what I REALLY want...Is to be comfortable in my own skin. So whatever that actually that is that is when I will be at my most thrilled disposition.

    Any program works if you work it, but only you can determine if it's a plan you are willing to work. There are a lot of choices out there, and they all work for different people. I still count the old WW exchanges because it works for me even though WW isn't making money off of me anymore.

    Keep on searching for what works for you. You'll find it. One thing you've found out is how committed you are and accomplished in exercise. Fantastic! emoticon
