I know people visiting my blog must be looking at the posting date of last September and wonder if I've given up on my new year's goal to lose weight already? While my original goal was unexpectedly sidetracked by things like illness and LIFE, I have NOT, I'm happy to say, given up on my goal of getting healthier.

My 9 WW point dinner

I've just decided to return to my weight loss roots of some thirty years ago and joined the Weight Watchers Online Plus Program. It was a deal I couldn't pass up. For only $49 I have complete access to the WW International website to help me stay on track and accountable for the food choices I make. I even have the free mobile app loaded on my phone and it is a God send! So many cool tips and tricks come with that little app and it even has a 24/7 feature to link me to a live person whenever I need them for questions, encouragement, to talk me off the ledge...you get the idea...;~)

My 9 point WW snack

This isn't my first journey with Weight Watchers. Many, many years ago, before my first child...and my first divorce...I weighted the heaviest I had ever weighed bofore (at least at that time) and I wanted to lose some weight. I joined during a time when you're only option was weekly meetings and hand writing down every morsel going into your mouth. While I was overwhelmingly shy, I LOVED those meetings and ended up being the only one at that particular location to actually LOSE weight during the holidays that particular year. I even ended up losing over 80 pounds and came within 10 pounds of my goal weight before allowing negative talk from others to crush my weight loss goals.

Now I have joined for me and no one else. The negative people from my past are no longer around to weigh me down or tell me I can't do this! I'M in charge of my weight loss destiny and since it took a long time to put the extra weight ON, I'm not going to stress over the fact it will take some time to take the extra weight OFF. I'm just keeping my eyes on the prize of a healthier me and full steam ahead!
