Commit whatever you do to the Lord, and your plans will succeed.
I did something life-altering Saturday morning at 8:30 am. At least I hope it will be life-altering...
I joined Weight Watchers.
I've been thinking about it for years and at one point my dr. even suggested it but I balked at the idea. I don't know why. I guess I thought I could do it by myself. But obviously, I can't.
I was so nervous walking into the meeting. I arrived early (because that is what the WW website said to do) and there were only a few of the workers setting up. It was probably the best time to get there. It wasn't overwhelming with people yet and I met the "teacher", Dorothy, and the receptionists, MaryAnn and RuthAnn.
I filled out all my paperwork and weighed in. Yikes! (Maybe someday I'll be comfortable telling what my actual weight is (soon to be "was") but not yet.
Dorothy found a long-time member for me to sit by and we chatted until it was time for the meeting. Soon people began pouring in. I wondered about them. How long had they been coming? What is their success story? What are their goals?
Soon, the meeting started. The main focus was "Asking for help". It was about not being afraid or timid to ask for help from those we are closest to. A mate, children, parents, co-workers, etc.
I have to say that the Hubby has been very supportive in my decision to start Weight Watchers. He is even helping me to figure out the point system and went grocery shopping with me. It made me smile to see him walking down the grocery aisle with the point calculator
So my question is: Have you ever joined Weight Watchers or some other weight-loss support group? If so, did you ask for help and have the support of your loved ones?
My week's stats:
Weigh-in: Starting weight
Exercise: Sat, Sun, Mon, Tues - 40 minutes per day walking as suggested by my Profile on WW website. (It actually suggested 35 minutes but my walking route takes 40 min.)
Tracking: Doing very well with tracking my food on the WW website. I'm still learning the SmartPoint system.
