Weight Watchers Here I Come!



I've had it! Today is the day that I finally get back on track. After losing more than 30 pounds on Weight Watchers in high school, I am convinced that the program works and is maintainable!

After getting a little lax with my eating around the holidays, and using my illness/medications as excuses for weight gain and not working out... I'M BACK!

I don't particularly care for my jeans being a bit more snug or seeing myself in unflattering photos. Not to mention I am a bridesmaid in my best friend's upcomign wedding, so enough is enough! Hello motivation!

Last night, I wrote out my weight loss goals and taped them to my bathroom mirror. Every single goal has a realistic date next to it. When each goal is conquered I get a wonderful non-food, indulgent reward.



Don't I look happy shopping for new clothes? ;)


While I was at it, I also dug out my old Weight Watchers point slider and packed my lunch ahead of time. I threw out any candy and junk food and am ready to do this thing for real... I want my cute little body back!

I am not exactly sure where this motivation is coming from (perhaps that AMAZING photo of Jennifer Hudson?? Wow!), but I am going to do it. I was well on my way this summer and then I let life and excuses get in the way.

___________________________________________

So here I am standing before you, blog friends, declaring my ultimate goal. I will be 34 lbs. lighter by June 17th.

Yes, that felt good to say. Finally, I feel like I have accountability in place and now I'm just excited to finally get to my goal! With the help of a few close girlfriends - Thanks Karen & Linds! - I know I can do this!


Are any of you gals out there Weight Watchers veterans? Anyone had a successful weight loss? Please let me know and offer some great tips!


I may even start featuring a weight loss success story each week and it could be YOU! Looking to join me in my efforts? Stay tuned for weigh-in Wednesday next week and we can do this together! Also, scroll down at the bottom of the post for a 25% off coupon for Weight Watchers :)

  1. Make sure you check out the newest system...the points are different now. A glass of wine is now 4 points vs. the original 2!

    Good luck, I love WW...when I do it...which I am not right now, but you might have given me the kick in my A$$ I needed!

    You can do it!!

  2. I really need to start up again. I lost a bunch of weight on WW after college, but I've gained it all back. I need to lose 31 pounds, but I'm really good at making excuses about hypothyroidism and birth control, etc, but really I just need something to make me actually lose the weight...What motivated you?

  3. You're so motivated!! I need to get my butt in gear and do the same. Just getting by and ignoring it doesn't help... now to make my goals :)

  4. Good you you!! Good luck. :)
    I recently lost 20 pounds on WW. I actually did good through the holidays but have kind of lost it the last couple weeks. But I'm getting back on track, and plan to lose at least 30 more pounds. Hopefully!

  5. I love that you're doing this! I cook a lot of WW recipes, but I've been debating about going all official and everything. I can't decide!

  6. good luck girl!! what a great goal. i lost some weight and gained lean muscle by adding free weights to my workout routine. check out womenshealth.com for free work out guides and tutorials. weight lifting burns calories even after youre done working out so its really worth the work. good luck!! xoxo jcd

  10. There is nothing like a blog to hold you accountable! :) Good luck on your weight loss journey, I am sure you will do it. You seem like you have the motivation.

    I lost 50 pounds on weight watchers about 4 years ago. I get embarrassed when I think or tell people I was 50 pounds heavier, let's just say lack of control in college got the best of me! I loved weight watchers, because I lost weight but I didn't feel like I was missing out on anything either because I could still allow myself a splurge, I just had to plan for it.

  11. I went to WW yesterday and was SHOCKED at the program changes. Those paper sliders are out, and a new digital counter is the only way to go now. They don't even care about calories now, instead they focus on 4 things (fat, carbs, protien, fiber). Today is day 1 for me. Good luck to you! You should go and get the new materials as the plan is TOTALLY different.

  16. Thats awesome, good luck! I worked at a frozen yogurt place as my first job (maybe you have Golden Spoon where you live?) and alot of ladies on WW would come in because you could get so much yogurt for little points! You should try it if you haven't!

  17. You rock!! :D I did WW a few years ago, and lost 25 pounds. It's really great to take the points system and use it to learn portion sizes.

  19. You can do it!!

    I'm currently on Weight Watchers. I was on it a couple years ago but I recently re-started after gaining a little weight back. The new system is a little different but has worked well for me so far. Keep us updated on your progress!

  22. Good luck! Keep us updated!! I don't actually do weight watchers, but I love to cook from their cookbook. Such yummy recipes!

  23. Congrats!! Your WW post caught my eye - I joined on December 10th and am down 8 lbs! I absolutely love the new plan and the freedom that it gives me. I wish you much success. I joined for the same reasons as you: sung jeans, bridesmaid (in June), and I also want my hot college body back! I have 17 lbs to lose until I get to my first official WW goal weight. Then I want to lose about 10 more after that (more of a long term goal - not by the June wedding) :-)

    No more excuses!! Definitely a good decision to join. If you need a WW buddy to help keep you accountable - feel free to contact me. You can never have too many.

  24. Well done for putting it out there!

    I have a few friends who are motivation buddies, we have emailed for the last few years and keep each other accountable for our goals whether exercise or other. Posting your target is great, there is no backing down now! Good on you!

    We have a fitness goal this year too which involves a local mountain.

    Please drop over to our blog when you have a moment. I am your newest follower!

    When is your next weight update?
