Weight Watchers was good this week. I lost 1.6 lbs. I thought it might be more but I'm happy with a loss. Down 7 in total since recommitting to the program. It's funny I see people in what looks like "weigh in day" clothes. Yoga pants, dresses, etc. I have been there but I swear I will not play those games again. I go directly from work and I am generally in jeans. That's what I am going to wear to weigh in. I used to play those games where I knew I hadn't lost much so I would wear something lighter, or go to a morning meeting instead of an evening or noon one. Not going there folks. This is going to be a slow process but one that will get me there. I'm anxious to get out of the 190's though, hopefully next week.
One thing I have noticed about the meetings is the product pushing and the "formula" meeting. The WW flip charts and topics are usually from the weekly newsletter. I don't hate it but I am finding that the half hour goes so quickly and the group doesn't usually get much time to talk. Yes we talk about the topic but not much time to share "food finds", recipes and feelings about challenges etc. I really like this leader, she's great but I sort of miss the old style meetings where you just sort of chatted about this weight loss journey and how the program was going for you with others that shared ideas and strategies. And they really really push the products. Whoah! Are we on commission here? I get it, WW needs to make money but c'mon. This is just my opinion but I would be interested to know if I'm the only one that feels this way. That all being said, it's a great program. It helped me to lose 58 lbs and get to my goal and it's working again. It really does work.
I'm going to check off some things on my list. Number 1 is go to the gym! Later gators :-)
