I Finally Get the Point

I surrender.

No more yo-yo fad dieting.

In my youth, I could diet away any 5-10 extra pounds within a week. I would always use unhealthy crazy diets ... mostly lack of eating!

I have been dieting and working out for a couple years now, yes YEARS, trying to shed some pounds. I am at the age where the size of my clothes or the numbers on the scale dosen't matter. It's now all about feeling comfortable in my skin. Ugh, dare I say I also think I should try to be a "healthy" eater because I am sure the over fifty thingys that start to happen are right around the corner for me.

Everyone I know that has had success in losing and keeping off weight, has done this by following the Weight Watchers diet. I am using the Flex Plan ... counting points assigned to food.

I started it this week and am now amongst the many that have this little book in my purse to look up food before I eat it so that I can tally the points.

Naw, I am not going to humiliate myself at this time by announcing how much I want to lose, but I am sure I will babble like a brook as I experience success.

I've been contemplating joining WW; I MUST lose AT LEAST 25 pounds, and have been hemming and hawing. Got a 2nd job, knowing that would keep me in! I work late, get off work starving, and eat too much. It's not working out!

I'll look up the prices, and maybe join with you!

Let me know if you join...misery loves company, lol

Can you tell how much I like to diet?

Oh, The Joys said...

I am a lifetime ww person now.

my daughter did weigh watchers a while back and she loved it but it was hard to keep track of points and crap all the time. But she said it worked....of course, she's a string bean, so how the hell would she know?

I've been on WW since last year, and while I've recently fell off the wagon, I have lost 25 pounds. I'm sure I've gained some back. I'm too chicken shit to get on the scale and look. But I can tell that I have gained, I can feel it in my clothes.
