I will try to keep this short, but I'm hopped up on cold medicine and so if a lot of it doesn't make sense, that would be why!
Today I was 201, how exciting LOL. I really feel like I can leave Twoterville behind for good this time. I guess crossing back into this territory really set me straight. It showed me how easy it is to slip back into those bad habits and let all of our hard work slip away. It reminded me that no one is immuned to regain and it can happen to anyone at any time. These were things I already knew, but now that I see again how easy it is to get into Twoterville and how hard it is to get out of, I know I will try that much harder not to come back here in the future.
I mentioned I went back to something I had tried previously, but didn't want to say anything in case I decided it wasn't for me again. But I am just going to come out and say it. I tried Weight Watchers for about 3 weeks last year, and I loved the leader and the meetings. I will say that I have never really bothered to learn the point system, and that's just based on pure laziness. I totally understand the method behind it, but I have been counting calories for almost 4 years and that is what works for me. I also have so many things memorized it is just the easiest approach for me. Well after 3 weeks I went to Florida on vacation, and I didn't want to face my vacation gain... and then I just buried my head in the sand and never went back.
So I am back at it and have currently been to 3 meetings, and yes I went even despite being sick. What I think is good for me is the accountability of a weekly weigh in, and the sense of being part of a group. I have lost a lot of this weight on my own (and of course with the support of Spark), but I guess that face to face accountability is what I feel I need right now at this point. It doesn't mean I will need it forever, and I have no time frame of how long I want to continue the Weight Watchers meetings. For right now I am enjoying it, and as my ticker approaches Onederland the accountability is definitely doing me some good. So I got a 50% off deal for 3 months and I will follow through with that and I will go from there and decide as I go. I didn't give it a fair shake the first time and really want to give it a fair chance.
Anyways, I feel crummy and I'm fighting this cold and ear infection, so hopefully I can get to feeling better soon. Those Disney germs will kill you.
I hope all is well with all of you and I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
