Tuesday, September 8, 2009.....
Yesterday, I mentioned how I'm struggling with the process of anything because of my fear of the outcome. I want to thank everyone who commented. Some left some great mantras and reading material which I plan on using and checking out.
In the meantime, I got a piece of Weight Watchers literature, asking me to come back by enticing me with reduced fees. Typically, I'd junk these offers (I'd love to say it's because I don't need them) but kept this one. Besides the reduction in fees, Weight Watchers is promoting its More to Lose Campaign. For every pound you lose they donate one dollar to a food shelter.
I admit, the campaign hooked me back in. Yes I really do need to lose weight, but if I can help others by shedding the fat, well, yay!
I signed up for 8 weeks (November 7th) and I may sign up for more, but for now, this is what I can wrap my brain around. For the next 8 weeks, I will attend meetings, plan menus, track points, drink water and exercise.
I will focus on the process and not let the outcome paralyze my ability to do it. This will be the first time I don't set a goal for myself and am curious/looking forward to what I experience during the process.
There is no way I'm telling you my starting weight, but I'll let you know my progress along the way.
