So last week, I headed back to my WW meeting on Thursday. I was definately up from the last time I was there, but that's no surprise. I'm more or less back to where I started from when I joined WW this time around, but that's OK, I'm just going to have to stick to it for crying out loud! LOL
They have a promotion going on right now where you can bring a buddy to a meeting for free, so next week I'm dragging my husband with me. We both need to lose weight, and while I know he'll do it if I do it, I need him to be invested in the program with me. So while he may not join & attend meetings like I do, I at least want him to know what it's all about and what happens when I go to my meetings. There is also an event later this month that's an open house, kind of, where successful members in the community are going to be speaking about their journey. I think that will be really inspirational & we're planning on going to that as well.
At the end of a WW meeting, they always celebrate those who have lost weight that week, whether it's a 5-pound increment or a milestone like 5 or 10% lost. There was a woman there this past week who was celebrating her 50 pound accomplishment. And I recognized her as someone that started the week after I did, back in May. I was so proud of her, she looked so happy & more importantly, proud of herself! And it was a reminder to me that if you stick with it, you see results, plain and simple. And that had I not chosen to go off plan for 3 months, that could have been me celebrating a big loss. So, I am using her as inspiration and a reminder that you can come a long way in a short time, as long as you're committed.
This week hasn't been an easy first week back on plan, considering we had dinner out Friday, a wedding Saturday, and a birthday Sunday... but I'm confident that I'll at least make some progress in the right direction when I go on Thursday!
