I've heard some people say, Weight Watchers is for weak people, really over weight people, that it's the same as counting your calories but you pay for it, ect, ect. Let me just say, that's all
R U B B I S H.
I lost the first 35 pounds counting my calories myself. I grew up very aware and able to count calories. That's what happens when your Dad is a competitive body builder. My Mom was awesome. She was so supportive and always made low fat low calorie foods for my Dad (and us). It's not hard for me. It's just a little boring. WW is fun to me. There is this community of people that are in the same boat. There are millions of recipes, ideas, tips, books, ect, for WW.

I went to Weight Watchers today to buy a new 3 month journal and to find out about the PointsPlus. Pleased that I am down 15 pounds from when I started at the end of July. Obviously I should have lost a lot more in that amount of time, but it's better than -0 or gain!

After we lost the baby in July, I really needed something to distract me. And WW did just that. Learning the program and getting hooked to it. By the way, today is exactly 1 month shy from when the baby was due. So on Jan 15, it's gonna be a real tough day. I can't believe it. Seeing my friends that were pregnant at the same time get ready to deliver is hard. In some weird way I feel even worse because I have only lost 15 pounds since then. I feel like I would be less sad if I at least lost 25+. Silly I know.

Anyways, the new program seems a bit confusing. I am all for eating real, whole foods, and it makes sense to plan the program like that. But I will get use to it. I'm gonna give myself a sticker for losing %7 of my body weight on WW.

I am excited to start the new PointsPlus tomorrow and to see how it goes. My new weigh in days will be Thursday.

Cheers to tracking! (with a big cup of lemon water:)

Oh and tomorrow is my AUDITIONS FOR CYCLE! At 1pm. Praying I'll do good and be able to teach soon! I practiced today at gym for an hour. And how could I forget to mention... I ran 1/2 mile in 5 minuets on the treadmill! I just wanted to see how far I could go at that pace. It was tough but great to work on speed.

I'm sorry you lost your baby. I miscarried last year, too, and it was devastating. I'm so grateful for the fact that it does get better! Good luck tomorrow!

Valerie I am sorry you lost your baby too. :(
