I know this is going to sound like a commercial......but I have to tell you that after trying everything to lose some weight (and that includes a myriad of diets and weight loss systems) I finally hit the JACKPOT!
Returning from a fun trip to K.C. Rog hit the sack!
I was still wound up, so I decided to stay up a bit longer. Well, stopping in the first floor bathroom
I stepped onto the scale!!!!!
Bells went off, sparks flew and I nearly came unglued!
Somehow....I suppose from eating....I had managed
to peek right over the top of the heaviest weight
I had ever been in my life!
Could this be true?
Could it have been the giant pizza Friday night
or the Mexican cuisine enjoyed Saturday night....
or maybe it was the delicious brunch
we woofed down on our way home!!!!!
Well, whatever it was.....it had to STOP!
It was now approaching midnight
I headed to the computer.
For some unknown reason,
I googled.....Weight Watchers Online!
Now understand that I have had many opportunities
to join the WW group.
In fact, we had a group of teachers hire a leader
that came to the school where I taught
....meeting us right after school
to weight everyone in and give us advice!
Did I go or join...............
I could do it on my own!
Well........on this particular night
I was so frustrated with myself
I read the online info with a new enthusiasm.
Their Points/Plus system had been upgraded
was especially generous with vegetable and fruits.
Evidently the old program had you counting fruits
for 1 point each.....
BUT NO MORE!
They were now free
as well as any vegetable you cared to munch.
This was do-able since I am a vegetable/fruit
Well.........the bottom line of this story is that I have been on it for 5 weeks and have lost 9 lbs.
Wow..............for me that is progress!
The fun part is that I am never hungry.
I don't have to do without my favorites.....
I just have to stay within my daily point structure.
This was really easy and although it comes off s.l.o.w.l.y.....
it is so worth it
because you don't feel like you are on a diet!
I just had to toot their horn for them,
because they have found a believer
(I am now 11 pounds away from my goal!!!! Yea!)
