Thanks so much for the words of encouragement. My first meeting is next week so I'm gearing up mentally - if my head isn't on straight going in then I won't make much progress.
The main reason I decided to go with WW (aside that my job will reimburse 1/2 the cost if I go to most of the meetings) is that the food on the plan comes from the grocery store and restaurants. I'm looking at this as a way to change my lifestyle, not dieting to a better weight then I'm done.
I'm still in the getting my mind set to do this again phase. I used to post here before my children were born, and now that my oldest is 6 I think it's waaaay past time to get started back. Heaven's knows the scale thinks I'm more than ready.
Anyway, I'm 41, mother to 6 and 4 year old children and happily married and ready to hop on the bandwagon. I think 50 pounds is a great long term goal for me.
Has anyone here tried Weight Watchers? They have a program here at work and I just joined. Apparently they use real food and have a philosophy of changing your lifestyle and eating habits, not dieting and of course incorporating exercise.View Thread
