Today, I joined Weight Watchers online, because that's the only program I can actually live with. The nearest Weight Watcher's meeting entails driving a 40 mile round trip, so I chose to join online. My regular weigh in day will be Sunday. I'm setting small goals to not intimidate myself with high weight loss numbers, because I have a long ways to go.
If there is anyone out there amongst my bloggie friends - or anyone else - who wants to be my weight loss buddy, I would be very, very appreciative, because I really do much better with a buddy or two or more (hint, hint!) So, if you are at all interested in seriously losing weight, won't you please be my partner and maybe we can help each other.
You can chose any weight loss program you want, but if you were to select the Weight Watcher's plan, then we could help each other even better (I think) because I'm quite familiar with that program. I just can't seem to stick with it all by myself. I already eat a basically healthy diet, but eating healthy alone is not enough - you have to still exercise constraint and not overeat according to one's activity levels. I have a very slow metabolism and since I am more sedentary now than in my younger years, the weight just clings to me and won't budge.
Wish me luck! The reason I am announcing this is so that I will not throw in the towel and give up, because now that I have openly announced this to the world, it would be more difficult - and ultimately embarrassing - for me to stop my weight loss journey!
