WeightWatchers® and a book report

es_weightloss0731_480x3601Today was D-day. The day to do or die, put up or shut up, or insert any other determination cliche′ here. My buddy and I went to our first Weight Watchers® meeting of 2009.  Having the monthly pass that I purchased online, I waited for her to arrive, and then waited to be weighed.  I couldn’t look at the scale. I was afraid it would be more than the 254 lbs I put in for my starting weight online.  Surprise! after seeing the receptionist write it down, it was only 251.8. Yes, it took a real effort for me to make 251.8 lbs sound like it isn’t very much.  She showed me her booklet, (which has a food guide, membership pass, and tracker-food and weight) and I showed her mine. Her info I will take to my grave. But mine I will apparently tell strangers like you.

Without going into detail which would get me sued, the plan takes the best of the latest two WeightWatchers® plans and combines them. The focus isn’t all on losing weight as much as it is on getting healthy. Maybe that’s what feels different.

I need to give a shout out to the Pasta Queen, Jennette Fulda. She wrote a book, “Half-A**ed: A Weight-Loss Memoir” which I ordered off It came this past Thursday, and I haven’t been able to put it down. I even took it to the hairdresser with me so I could finish reading it. Kudos to you, Jennette! A very good read!
