Well, I did it. I paid my money, attended my first meeting, had my first official weigh in (don’t ask), and am now officially on Weight Watchers. This is the third round for me and once again I am filled with hope that this time I will not only reach my goal but find the secret to maintaining my new weight.
I have a closet full of clothes that I can no longer wear, nice clothes, perfectly good clothes. Even though we have a skiff of snow on the ground this week I am thinking ahead to spring and considering my favorite capri pants that I know I wouldn’t be able to wear right now.
No longer can I kid myself into believing that perhaps my thyroid isn’t functioning as it should, or my cholesterol medication is the culprit, the fact is that I am older, my metabolism has naturally slowed down and without drastic measure I will not live my healthiest life.
So, I have the Weight Watchers Points Plus tracker on my smart phone so I can track points and calculate food values on the go, I have my trusty Wii set up for after-work work outs on my Wii Fit, I’m going to buy the Wii Active program this weekend. I’m ready to go. The faces of my grandchildren are my motivation – I want to be healthy enough to enjoy watching them grow up (but not too quickly).
So I’m off and running (so to speak). Wish me luck!
