Last Friday, I did it. I signed back up for Weight Watchers Online. It cost me $90 for 3 months and I can't tell you how much it irks me that I still have to spend money to lose weight BUT (and this is a big but), it was either spend the money on that or on new jeans. I chose WW.
So, I weighed in at just under 200 lbs (cue huge sigh of relief as going over that would have been one psychological blow) and proceeded to count points again. And it was an easy transition. It felt like I'd never left and it felt like I was finally in control again. It's a good feeling.
It's really not been too bad this week. A couple moments of feeling a little bit extra hungry and some grouchiness, but nothing I can't handle. I figured out a lot of tricks that work for me last time around and they came back to me again... I just needed the motivation to stick with it. So week one down. All my flex points eaten. All my AP's (activity points) earned and eaten and the scale said...
... that I lost 4.9 pounds.
See what happens when I put my mind to something? Now, please keep in mind that most of this was water weight and I'm very good at gaining and losing many pounds in a week. It's not unheard of for me to gain 10 pounds in a week. I'm not even kidding. 10 pounds. So just under 5 pounds was not unexpected. Which puts me at about 33 pounds from my goal weight.
Or so. More on that another day.
