Weight Watchers

I don’t think I have mentioned it on the blog but the first week of December I joined Weight Watchers. After losing 35 pounds on my own I was needing another source of support and motivation. I am so glad I rejoined. Yes this is the 3rd time that I have joined. But before we celebrate let me tell you a story. Last week I had a 1.8 pound gain. I sat in my weight watchers meeting frustrated and angry. I was quitting. Just like I had in the past. But then something else happened. I got some new thought in my mind that I was in this situation because I always gave up. Then I reviewed last weeks food journal and realized I had way too much sodium and wine last week which I knew had a lot to do with the weight gain. Then I read some weight loss stories about consistency. I started thinking that if I was a little more consistent and persevered in my goal I would eventually make it to my finish line. Just like I had with running my 6k. So my thoughts changed my actions and I got back on track. When I weighed in today the scale said 3.8 pounds lost. I reached my 5% goal for weight watchers.
Of course I am happy I worked really hard for that. But I know this is still my journey and I am not giving up on my dream….either should you. Will you be here to celebrate my 10% loss?

    I sit here SO discouraged. I have lost 60lbs since the birth of my child and I see it now slowly creeping back on. I am a Lifetime member of WW and after the birth of my first child, I was back at goal in 1 1/2. I lost 60 after the second and then left WW thinking I could do it on my own. I am nearing a weight that I thought I would never see again and I am jus disgusted with myself. I tell myself that I cannot afford WW, but then I cannot afford not to return! My life is busy…married with 2 children – 2 and almost 5 and I work outside the home. I lead a women’s Bible study once a week, trying to be active in my son’s school and other activities…I just don’t know what to do. I have 20 lbs to go until I reach my WW Lifetime goal. I truly want to get there, but I am in such a horrible place right now.
