I quit Weight Watchers today. I started thinking about the $39.95 I pay each month and how I am not working the program. I may as well be setting fire to forty bucks each month. I have not found a meeting leader that provides the payment induced inspiration that I need. I do not have a group of people that I enjoy seeing every week. Finally, I am not working the program. I do feel like a complete tool for paying money for so long only to be heavier than when I first jumped on the scale. I do know the program works (if you work it) and I was hoping to have the success I did in 2006. I didn't, so today I cut my losses.
I know this doesn't go with my 2010 goals but I am replacing Weight Watchers with cleaner eating. I have a massive support system both at home and at work as everyone that I know is kicking it into high gear and getting fit. I will be one of them.
I am happy to have my $39.95 back each month......there is my Italy money right there!!
I have been kind of in the dumps this week. My work BFF, Sarge, is going on an extended leave of absence (read: being deployed). She is a my fellow Starbucks girl, my lunch buddy, and my all around go to gal for girly chit chat. I am going to miss her so much. While I am beyond proud that she is serving our country, I am pissy that I am probably going to have to start making good old Folgers coffee (selfish, I know). Thankfully time goes by fast so she will be back crunching numbers before we know it. Also, the world is a lot smaller these days with email and Facebook so while we are a half a world apart, we will be in touch. In the meantime....she has some highly coveted office supplies that are just screaming for me to take. **evil grin**
