I Believe in Weight Watchers

I lost over 200lbs with the help of Weight Watchers. I'm guessing that I've managed to keep 90% of it off. This past year I have not tracked AT. ALL. I have not been to a meeting and I haven't weighed in.

Yikes. So hard to believe. Pun not intended.

I was part of their 2012 national advertising campaign BELIEVE. I was all over TV ads, I was being interviewed left and right by national media outlets. I believed in Weight Watchers, in myself, in EVERYTHING!



I think over the course of 2013 I believed that I could do it alone. Truth of the matter is, I CAN'T!  I NEED my weekly meetings. They INSPIRE me. They help to keep me on track. They help me to BELIEVE.

I'm excited and nervous for my weigh in tomorrow. I know I haven't gained back an awful lot, but I know I've gained. I can tell because my winter pants from last year don't fit. I know I've gained muscle in my legs, butt, arms and chest. But I also know that I've been eating too much and haven't been tracking.

That stopped YESTERDAY! I tracked all day yesterday and had a huge eye-opener when I found that my normal daily diet has me exceeding what I calculated my daily points to be. Oops. That's a problem.

I'm just glad that I realized something was going on before the issue got too out of hand.


Are you an introvert or an extrovert?? I am an extrovert. I NEED people!!

  • I'm so glad you BELIEVE in yourself. Hope you have a good meeting, weight in. I was an introvert growing up but I think as I get older I'm becoming more of an extrovert.
  • WOW, awesome and Congrats! I love Weight Watchers too and I found once I started missing a few of my meetings I lost my inspiration to keep going. Those meetings are so important and I really need to make that change again with my weight. Love this post!
  • It is important to believe in yourself and what your doing.  It is also hard to always count calories during these holiday time.  The important thing is that you've caught it in time and I know you'll do fine.
  • I've never been to a weight-loss meeting, so I'm not sure if they would be helpful or not.  Maybe I will pop in on one to see.
  • Do you know if you can do WW when you are breastfeeding? I used to be on WW years ago and liked it, the results were slow but healthy than loosing too fast.
  • Yes, you can follow WW while nursing Smile
