Working full time and adjusting to my limited free time to run/workout… my weight and waist line has increased. It is not only the physical changes that I have noticed, but I am also tired and have lost my desire to regain my fit and healthy self. So… I decided to join weight watchers at work a few weeks ago.
It was a big step, for me, to admit to myself that something needed to change. I didn’t think that my eating was out of control. I DO know that I was not lifting weights or really burning more calories than I was taking in.
I knew that I needed accountability more than anything.
I wrote a check and signed up to see what Weight Watchers was all about.
I went to my first meeting, which is right after school. My weight was not a shocker as I weigh myself at home.
I went to my second meeting, expecting a HUGE difference in the scale… even though I changed not a thing. NOTHING. from the previous week. My weight went down maybe a pound or two… but I also took off my denim jacket and boots for this weigh in. Sigh.
I was expecting different results while I was not changing anything during my day.
For me, weight watchers wasn’t working. It is a great program. However, I don’t want to rely on having to scan or plug in food to an app to know how many points that meal is for the rest of my life.
For me, using myfitnesspal was a lot easier than the WW app.
For me, tracking my macros (IIFYM) was a lot easier than trying to fit my points in through my day with WW.
Yes, I know that I only gave it 2 weeks. I still paid for it in full. Heck, I could still go back over the next 10 weeks if I wanted to. I won’t. I just learned that this program… although it is great and it works for many people… it is not for me.
I am a weight watchers drop out… and I am looking to find a group that will work for me. Someone who will hold me accountable, keep me motivated, and spark the desire to be better and challenge myself to reach my goal.
