Yep, I’m a dropout – a Weight Watchers dropout that is. About 5 years ago, I was getting almost too large to buy any clothes from regular stores so I decided to take charge of my weight and I joined WW. After about 8 months I lost 30 pounds and looked great. It was really exciting to buy all these new, smaller clothes. Then, slowly, reality set in. My body just didn’t want to be that small. I gained about 12 pounds and that’s where I’ve stayed since then. Four months ago, I joined a gym and have been working my butt off trying to get back down on the scales. The numbers didn’t budge, but I did gain a lot of muscle and lost 6% body fat. So you’d think I’d be happy, right? Of course not! I want the magic weight/clothing size numbers. Last month I rejoined WW thinking I’d be all motivated to get back on track. Well, that lasted about 2 weeks. Let’s face it: writing down everything you eat is effective but it’s also tedious. I know what to eat. I know what not to eat. I know how much to eat. Now I just have to do it! So I’m going to quit WW (again) and keep doing this on my own. I don’t go to meetings anyway so I don’t know why I thought that weighing in every week would help. For now, I’ve given up Diet Coke and desserts so we’ll see what happens. Wish me luck ’cause I’m gonna need it!
