I’m Mad as Hell and I’m Not Going To Take This Anymore!

I am tired………..I am tired of giving Weight Watchers money every month. I go to my meetings, I weigh-in, I participate in the meeting discussion. Shouldn’t that be enough? Evidently it isn’t! Who knew I was actually going to have to put more effort into this whole weight loss thing.

I wouldn’t go to any store, hand them my money and walk out of there with nothing in my hands. Why do I think it is okay to do it at Weight Watchers?

It seems that I have to do more than just talk the talk of Weight Watchers. I have to commit to following the program from the minute I walk out of the meeting until the time I walk back in 7 days later.

There is no magic bean they give you at the first meeting that you take home and throw in your backyard and voila you lose weight. Weight Watchers isn’t for sissies. You have to work at it every minute of every day. You have to make conscious decisions EVERY day. You have to ask yourself EVERY day, “How bad do I want it?”

How bad do you want it? Really. How much do you want to be able to walk into ANY clothing store and be able to buy anything you want — not the stuff in the far back corner with a big “Plus Sizes” sign above it, but the nice and cute clothes that are on the racks in the front of the store. How much do you want to be able to walk into a room and not wonder if you are the biggest person there, scoping out a chair that will hold you and feeling like everyone else is so cute, but they are saying “If only she would lose weight……” behind your back.

I am tired of waiting for my life to begin when I lose weight. It has already begun. THIS IS IT! I am 53-years-old. Hell, my life is more than 1/2 over. How long do I think I have? ZERO! I have zero time to keep putting off losing weight. I have ZERO excuses left. THIS. IS. IT.

Soooooooo, Weight Watchers you will no longer be taking my money while I sit in the meetings and do nothing else. I am going to work that program like my life depends on it, because it does! I am going to put the effort into tracking, exercising, drinking my water, attending meetings, and weighing in! Like I said, WW isn’t for sissies, but I am willing to put in the work.

How about you? Are you with me?
