Today I took the plunge and signed up for Weight Watchers. I am going to meetings and stepping on what I refer to as the cattle scale. I hate to admit this, but I can't do it on my own. I had success with the program before so I know I can do it again. It just kills me that I have to pay someone to track my weight loss and tell me things that should be common sense. The money is just one of the many reasons I want to succeed this time.
My girlfriend Lisa and I signed up about the same time. We decided to try the "Mom and Me" meeting. It was not quite as nice as enjoying a quiet meeting without kids but it is great to have that option. To shut my kids up during the meeting I shoved a bag of Goldfish at them. I wonder what the leader thought of my pushing food on my kids at a meeting for people who have food issues.
I am glad I went to the meeting. The topic today was negative self talk. I am notorious for beating myself up to the point that I really do fail. I am going to be working on that, among other things. When you look at the cost of meeting, I guess it is cheap therapy. Ha!
The scale read out was not as bad as I thought it was going to be BUT I have a significant amount of weight to lose. I have lost count how many times I have started WW. I know what I need to do to have the success, so I am doing it. Please bear with me as I detox off the crap in my diet.
How did it come to be that weekends are crazier than weekdays? I am bracing myself for a tornado of activities. I always hated the people that said things like "You think you are busy now....wait until you have kids"....ugh they were right. I feel like I need a clone of myself.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
