Weight Watchers Works

Oh hell yes it does.

OK, here's the history. I know WW works as I've been there, and done that. I've joined WW and I lost weight.

I fell off the program, and I gained weight.

I joined WW again, and I lost weight.

As you all know, I'm going back to meetings this week. I need them. I can't do this alone...ya I know, I'm needy...what can I say?

I got this email from Florine Mark today...oh ya...we're BFF's ya know? So, I read what she had to say. Then, I actually thought about what she said, then I thought 'holy shit she's really said something here'. Here's what Flo said to me. I thought it was deep. Read it...think about it yourself.

Just about everyone faces setbacks in life. But part of success is dealing with and ultimately, learning from our failures. Persistence is important, but repeating the same actions over and over again probably won’t get you any closer to your objective. Look at your previous unsuccessful efforts and decide what to change. Keep making adjustments, using your experience as a guide. Never give up!

OMG, it's so true. Yes, Weight Watchers works, but you have to do it right. What's right for me, might not be what's right for you. I have to find what is right for me. I can't go back to meetings this week and do exactly what I did before, because, obviously, that really didn't work. Yes, I lost weight, but I gained it back too. I need to really think about the program and maybe tweak it somehow. Find what works and keep that, and figure out what didn't work and shit can that. Gaining 40 pounds sucks...but at least I can learn something from it.

Oh ya, I got some thinkin and some plannin to do.



  1. thinking and planning and for me it was a lot about being still.

    sitting with myself and asking the hard questions and being honest with my responses.

    I swear marathon running would have been easier than that----but it worked

    xo xo


  2. yep indeed it works...

    so does this mean you are back on? :)

  3. YOUR FRIEND IS SO RIGHT...never give up....this maintaining and not regaining is also new to me...

    WW does still counting my points.
