I’ve decided to start a new series of posts: Weight Watchers Weekly. I will post them every Friday (for the most part, but once a week for sure) as my meetings are Thursday evenings. I have finally admitted that I need to do something structured about my weight (apparently complaining doesn’t count, nor does it help me lose anything) and have taken the first step. Over the last year (or so) I have put on 20 lbs. That’s right, one year=20 lbs. Do the math…it’s a little painful. So, inspired by my friend/coworker, I went to Weight Watchers last night and joined. If Jenny McCarthy can do it, so can I! (Well, really, I’m sure Jenny has plenty of will power and help, but she’s definitely inspirational).
Now, I’ve done this before, and had some success, but I quit very quickly. I’m hoping that by publicizing my efforts and goals (and not living by my sister who loves to bake) I will have a little more motivation. Not only that, but having a friend definitely helps, especially since we will go to meetings together and can share successes (she started a week ago and is down 4.6 lbs).
So, in these weekly installments, I hope to update you all on my challenges, success, share any tips, etc. And, if I miss a week, please go ahead and remind me because, with my blogging obsession, chances will be that if I missed a week, it was intentional. And, even if I have a bad week, well, I want to be able to share that, as well.
So far, so good!
