Back in the day, back in 2008, I was 335lbs and decided to do something about it. I joined Weight Watchers Online and my local gym, all in the same day. A year or so later I was down to 250ish, which was awesome. I was able to maintain that for a long time, despite letting my WW membership lapse. And about a year and a half ago I got down to 235lbs thanks to going low carb. I hit the 100lbs lost mark.
Then life happened.
Got majorly derailed and despite multiple attempts to get my feet back under me I just haven’t been able to get back on track.
Today I am 271lbs.
Yeah. I’m disgusted with myself.
Enough is enough. I rejoined WW this morning. The site has changed a lot, but it all feels very familiar. I feel good about this choice. It lets me do the low carb thing during the week/whenever, but I can take a detour from that without viewing it as a “Well, I’m not low carb so I may as well eat all the things” thing. Know what I mean? I can eat low carb when it works and it is convenient, and eat not super low carb (but still stay on track) at other times. It gives me structure and boundaries for non-low carb times.
Plus, fruit. BERRIES FOR DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYS!
Anyway, this feels good.
