First Day...

Sunday, February 13, 2011

Today was the first day that I went to a Weight Watchers meeting. I think that I have finally found something that will help me to stay accountable to myself. I know what I need to do, but I just need something to keep me doing it. I know my family thinks that I don't need to go because they keep saying that I know what to eat, but it is way beyond that to me. Just because I know what to eat doesn't mean that I do it. To me, the decision to go to WW was not about knowing what to eat. It is having someone to keep me accountable and to stay dong what I know I need to do. I have been doing this on my own for about a year and a half and I have yet to get past the 10 pound loss mark. Even though I have been following the program since Jan 31, today will be my official start weight with WW. I am looking forward to what I will be able to accomplish on this program. I know that the combination of SP and WW I WILL meet my goals!

    Cool! You can do it girl. Hopefully this will give you the motivation you need to PUSH forward and leave those first 10lbs in the dust! I'm ready to see 15 lbs and it's taking FOREVER so I'm right there with ya! We just need to make better choices. WW will only work if you do what it says. I know what to do but don't always do it, and that's why I haven't joined but trust me..I want too. But won't allow myself until I can prove that I can use what I have first. I've just put too much money into stuff and not followed through. Thank goodness SP is free uh? lol :) Good luck girl! Keep us posted!

    Way to go! I've also learned that having to be accountable is a HUGE key to the times when I am successful. You can do it!

    You are so right! Just because we know *what* to do doesn't give us the boost to do it like being accountable does! I've heard good things about the new points system..........

    Good decision - most of us know what to do, but making yourself go through with it is quite different. When you aren't accountable, it's so easy for a few cookies to 'not count' or to believe that you'll 'pay for it tomorrow' with exercise or whatever. If it's what you need, don't listen to the non-believers!
