Sometimes the hardest thing to admit to ourselves is that we need help.
I need help losing weight and I will need help keeping it off. That’s one of the many reasons why I have signed up to WeightWatchers. I’ve tried on my own and done okay. The first time I did WeightWatchers I was two stone heavier than I am now, so I feel really good I haven’t put it all back on before admitting I need help.
The scary part of the process is signing up. I felt nervous as I didn’t know anyone or what the leader would be like, but I still wanted to go. I got there a bit late as did not realise the time stated was the actual talk time, rather than when weighing starts, but they were nice and let me in then did the weigh in. It was nice to be back in a group who are on their own journeys.
I tried to pay attention to the talk, but was nervous about weighing. However it was nice listening, rather than actively joining in. The talk this week was about outdoor eating, now that spring has arrived and summer is on the way. It got us thinking outside the box of normal BBQ staples and thinking about other things that would be much more plan friendly.
I’m treating this about real food. I am not going to get sucked into all the products they do, but rather eat as I have been, just less of it.
I’ve still got to look through all the things you get when you join tonight, but wanted share that I am on 35 ProPoints a day and will be looking and learning about the Places and Routines aspects of the approach at the weekend.
They were also running a free gift offer at the moment that I upgraded to the pack of books as I love having hard copies of things.
My aim for my first week is to track everything and reduce what I’m eating to stick to the ProPoints. I am going to use the Journal as I think writing it down is better for me than tracking online. I will use the online tool while at work and other parts of the App on my phone to monitor things. I also plan to also track my activity to see how much I do, but I am not going to use those points. The first week for me is about learning the plan and working out where I need to make changes to make it easier for me to stick to.
