Okay guys, I am challenging myself and I’m hoping to have some company cause I hate doing things alone. I’ve just joined Weight Watchers Online. Yeap, I have. I have to lose about 15 lbs and I’m determined to do it. I had no excuse this time because they were waiving the $29.95 sign up fee and the cost was only $17.95 per month for 3 months so it was a really great deal. I already started keeping track from this morning and we will see how it goes. I’m staying postitive because I think I can do this.
About 15 years ago I did Weight Watchers Online (before it was popular) and I was very successful. I’m not one to go to all those weigh ins and meetings so this was a good alternative for me because it keeps you accountable even though it’s just to a computer program. Now the website has lots of cool features and from what I can see so far, you can put in a whole bunch of different foods and it quickly calculates the points for you. There are lots of recipes to choose from and it tracks your weight progress on a big chart.
This is where you guys come in. I’m hoping that I won’t have to do this alone. I’m hoping some of you will join me. Since most of us are in the same boat as far as cutting our grocery budget and using coupons, we can share recipes that are still inexpensive and share our successes and even failures. Each week I’ll post my progress and we can post a great recipe or an item on sale that has a small amount of points, etc. We can post when we had a good week or even a bad week or day. It will be like our own personal Weight Watchers meeting.
So, leave a comment to let me know if you will be joining me. Don’t let me face this alone. I hate doing things by myself. It should be fun and I might even see if I can put up some kind of widget on the site to keep track of our progress. Maybe like a group weight loss total or something. We’ll see how it goes.
Note: Don’t feel like you have to join the WW program to join us on this mission. If you are trying to lose weight and want “company” then just join in the conversation. My husband has done Body For Life from a book he got for super cheap and lost 10 lbs. So there are all kinds of ways to eat better, lose weight and stay healthy. Do whatever works best and fits in your budget.
Each week we’ll post our progress and recipes. If you have great recipes you can email them to me @ firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll post them up.
