I've joined.......

I FINALLY did it....I joined Weight Watchers yesterday. Fergie inspired me so much that I finally got my act together and signed up for the online program. My goal is to lose 15 pounds.!

That will take me back to my second year in law-school weight. You ask....why not first year???? Everyone gets the sophomore 10!!!!! Well, I was quite tiny and very fit and tres sexy in my first year of law school (especially first semester - thus snaging (sp?) me a husband by the end of first year - I digress). Anyway, my weight in the first year was abnormally low - in fact it was the smallest I had ever weighed in my entire adult life. Although I explain to DH all the time that those super tight size 4 blue jeans was a weight/size aberration, and although I really felt extremely confident during my first year, I would be striving for an "unhealthy" weight if I strive for that weight/size. So, I'm being real with myself and shooting for the second year weight/size. That is a little more realistic body weight and will provide a more realistic goal.

Anyway, I've been on WW for less than 24 hours and I now understand why I've gained 10 pounds in the last 6-7 months. I always thought that I wasn't eating that much and couldn't figure out why I was still picking up so much weight. Well, a chocolate milkshake twice a week would do it - wouldn't it?!?!? Or a salad from Corner Bakery, with loads of dressing?!?!?! So, I will do my best because my body image is absolutely terrible right now, my energy level is low, I'm irritable and grumpy all the time - there is no way that this could be good for me, my daughter or my marriage. I'll keep you updated on my progress.

P.S. I have no idea how to do all the great little icons that J. Fergie used:)

WOW, joining is the first step, right? I know lots of people that have had great success with WW.

Can't wait to hear how you're doing.

p.s. It's nice to see you post. We don't see too much of even J. Fergie lately it seems.

Where're you guys hiding out? LOL

I'm doing weight watchers too but not going to meetings. Are you following the core plan or flex plan?
