So after my post last night, I was really telling myself to believe in myself. And then this morning when I headed over to the WW website, I found this.
Do you think it's a coincidence?
As I said yesterday, today is my two year anniversary of starting this journey. Unfortunately, I have gained some weight so I'm not as light as I was a year ago, but I'm still 60 pounds lighter than I was two years ago. I want 2012 to be my year. 2012! I love even number years so this year is already my friend!
I became a lifetime member of Weight Watchers in the Fall of 1999 with a goal weight of 130. I would like to officially change my goal weight to 145 once I reach it and then weight in monthly at Weight Watchers as a lifetime member. I also heard that lifetime members get free e-tools. Those things are good incentives to keep going and not give up. Keeping up with that monthly check-in will also help me maintain when I get to that point.
That said, I'm not sure if it's best to continue with Weight Watchers online or actually become a meetings member. I have said several times that the meetings aren't really for me, but it seems like they have a new open door format where you can go, weigh in, talk with the leaders, get materials and not sit through a meeting. There is a new center on my way home that has open hours each day for drop ins. I like this idea. I like it a lot, in fact. It would be a nice way to find a leader that I connect with and then maybe meetings would be good for me. For now, I am an online member but I will keep you posted on what I decide. Online is more in my budget right now so I'd kinda like to stay with that for awhile, but I also want to stay motivated so if I need to change it up, I will.
Today is a good day. I did not get up to exercise, but I am eating ON PLAN and I'm drinking my water faithfully. Quick note, I'm not sure if I've mentioned it, but I am a water bottle addict. I have no less than 5 purple water bottles and 3 pink ones. Here's my latest acquisition:
And just because I made that proclamation so many moons ago about this blog needing more pictures, here's your daily cuteness.
Tucker, who nearly died over New Year's weekend. He's doing so much better!! I am so thankful. He's wearing his "party collar" until he gets his stitches out tomorrow. Last night he was clearly helping me work. He also loves purple and chooses that color for his pens.
