I cancelled my WW subscription today. So I am paid up thru August 20, which means I did join the program for a year like I said I would... it's a shame I have not really participated since about February though.

6 wasted months on WW times $40/month equals 30 pounds Teale has regained.

I can't shake the "oh well" attitude I have about it. Kind of just feel like "well, it was bound to happen eventually... it always does..."

Weight loss will happen when it will happen.. you can't force these things. I feel very much on the same page with you and I know how easy it is to give up. But someone told me recentely that we must never completely give up on ourselves. Never. And she was right, even if things are not going the way we would like them to right now.

It used to be the same way for me, too. "Oh well, I always gain it back. What was I thinking..."

It can be different. The ONLY difference for me now is forcing myself to do it whether I want to or not. I just had 3 bad days in a row and gained five pounds. If I give up now, I know I will be back up to 278 in no time. We have to love ourselves even to take better care of us, even if we don't really want to. I know you have it in you, Teale. You are beautiful.

It's a special day. I just blogged about it... :)

Hugs Teale. Be strong.

Sweetie, you're paid up through August. That's TWO months you paid for.

Go to meetings.Seriously. The weight ins will suck butt, and still, go. It's like this odd little sign from Heaven--you paid, go get em. You never know if something will click! And holding is better than gaining MORE. I'm treading water here, trying not to regain it all while I'm whipping up some motivation mojo, so I'd say this to you as I'd say it to myself: GO TO THE MEETINGS!!!!! Tell them your'e having a hard time. Get support!!!

(((((((((((hugs to Teale))))))))

I've read all three wonderful comments that have been left for you so far, and I must say... I agree with every one of them.

I believe that you'll feel better if you go to the meetings. I'm sure you're not the only WW struggling right now, and you're certainly not the only blogger who is struggling. But you can do this. I know you can.

The 30 lb. gain is in the past. Start out fresh and look forward to the future. You've been through a lot in the past few months, but just look at this as a new beginning. Make the most of the time left that you have with WW. We'll be right here to cheer you on! :)

sorry to hear that WW didnt work out, but rather than think negatively about it or like a failure, focus on the positives. you can start fresh now with some else new. Just because one thing didnt work for you, doesnt mean that nothing else will. there is something out there that will be IT for you and you will find it. dont ever give up hoping that you will find it and succeed.and dont give up on yourself. you arent doomed to fail or to be fat. you are a great person and deserve to be healthy and happy and I know you can achieve it. so experimen with different ways of eating. Create a "teale" plan that is yours and yours alone and is a way that you can eat and do forever.

awgh babe, (((superhugs)))

You will find what is important to you. And it's ok to feel the way you do right now. Sorry to hear that everything has been just blah of late.

I agree with make a Teale plan. Even if it means just dragging yourself into the few renmaining meetings.

Take some time out and away from it all, if it helps.
