When I joined Weight Watchers in 2010, my self-esteem had taken a beating. I was feeling pretty damn low and needed to do something for myself to boost my energy and start to like myself again. I knew WW worked because I had friends that had lost on the program and they still ate out and ate chocolate so it seemed like a good plan to me.
I joined with my sister-in-law, my girlfriend C and her sister. Those last two immediately started dropping weight like Snoop Dogg dropped it like it’s hot and my sister-in-law and I lost slowly (very slowly). Eventually I did lose 25 pounds though and I felt great. I was internet dating, wearing smaller clothes and feeling comfortable withmy body and what it looked like sans clothes.
But, like everything else, I left WW when I got to comfortable. I quickly put back on that weight and I couldn’t even tell you today what my weight is. I might still be down or I might have surpassed my pre-WW weight I don’t know.
But Saturday I will. Because I am throwing in the towel. I am getting my ass back to WW and back to my meetings. I miss feeling awesome about myself. I miss feeling completely comfortable looking at myself (let alone someone else looking at me) naked. I will do what I can to focus and look and feel MY best again.
Wish me luck!!!
