Thirteen Things About Starting Weight Watchers Again

1. Water. Drink it. Do it or retain salt. End of sentence.

2. Those Asian Dumplings at Ruby Tuesday's ... really can't have the whole plate anymore, dork.

3. WW makes a yummy little lemon snack cake. That I could eat the whole box of. In one sitting. Note to self: don't buy those again.

4. Exercise... really need to do it.

5. My children ask me about EVERYthing that I am doing ... Mommy, are you on Weight Watchers? What are you eating? Where is your black case? Why aren't you writing anything down? There should be points given to a person when they have to deal with that many questions just the first day on program.

6. My body hasn't been miraculously replaced with Barbie's yet ... I was expecting that on my first day back OP.

7. Although I think the points I have are a lot, the things I like to eat consume a LOT of those points.

8. Really... no more bacon and egg breafasts for me anymore. No more. That is a splurge. Read that, Ace? NO more.

9. Afer a while, a tangerine looks like chocolate.

10. Never again will I start this program on Valentine's Day.

10. # 2 ... I almost didn't record the sheer amount of points I consumed tonight for dinner. Then I realized that I needed to... for my own sake.

11. No matter how many times I hear it, this isn't a DIET. I have to tell myself that it isn't a diet. It is a change of life. Right? Right. I think so.

12. 10 points should be given, per child, per day, who have been in my house due to school closings .. so that should give me ... oh... 80 points.

13. I WILL do this. I WILL do it. I WILL I WILL I WILL!!!

I know, I know..diets are so hard. The water part is crucial, but hard to get into. The less you are allowed to eat the more you want to. I'm proud of you Mer, I need to get some gumption to get on the boat to. No matter what size we are, it never is the RIGHT one, is it?!
I'm happy to be your exercise partner, if you want one...

my advice, from someone who's not on a "diet" but a change of eating habits, don't deny yourself ANYTHING, just eat a taste or a small portion.

Good for you for going back on WW. You can do it!

I am right there with you. No Weight Watchers, but all the same issues without the discipline of a program. *off to go drink a big glass of water now*

WW is great - I like the Core Plan better than Flex because I'm a points fibber by nature. Good luck with it. Water, water, everywhere, all of it to drink.

Quote from my last meeting: "If you want a little behind you have to leave a little behind!" Funny, and oh so true.

Oh Good for you. You GO Girlie!

I always feel bad when someone else gets the motivation to do something good and I still feel like hmm... no not yet.

Happy Thursday Thirteen.

Just a little h20 FYI...I find that putting a slice of lime or lemon into my water really seems to help me drink more. It could be completely psychological that I think it tastes better that way, but whatever. As long as it helps me keep my water consumption up, who cares, right. ;)

I'm on Weight Watchers, too. :) I'm eating their recipe for chili as we speak! It's actually very good.

You are a very funny lady! Thoroughly enjoyed reading this - your kid classifications are a hoot. Good luck with WW!

Best wishes with this change in your life. It's a good one. Wish I were mentally ready so I could make those needed changes. Not quite "there" yet.

I am sure that I am the only person on the planet, who, wanting to lose a few extra pounds, goes on WW and GAINS two pounds this week! Hello?! Dieting just makes me mad. I think it's almost better to do as the woman in French Women Don't Get Fat says: find your weakness and moderate it. Only, what if your weakness if fried, sweets, and starch? I'd only be eating greens...
