I signed up for Weight Watchers (again) today. I have struggled with my weight since high school and I come from a family of people who struggle with their weight constantly. I’ve been up & down 15, 20, 25 pounds at a time. And every time I gain it back & then some.
Last time I lost a great deal of weight was on Weight Watchers – pictured on the right is me at my lowest weight – about 40 pounds ago. I was going strong with it until my brother killed himself – 4 years ago in May 2008. It just made me lose it – the week I spent visiting my family at the time led to loss of control over what I was eating plus I just didn’t care enough to count points when I got back home. And I haven’t cared enough since. I’m not sure why but eating is the last thing to fall into line – even when I have everything else under control & my ducks are all in a row. It’s like that last little baby duck, straying off to the side constantly.
Anyway, it’s time. Weight Watchers worked before & it can work again. I need to use their plan to start eating for fuel, instead for comfort or out of boredom.
I will be healthy.
