My first week of WW I posted on here about how unmotivated I felt starting out on the new program. I was frustrated and convinced I had an impossible goal. Im on my 3rd week now, and I have to say I am really loving it. I read on here all the time that its important for you to find a program that works for you, and I really think I've found it in Weight Watchers. This is the first time I've ever put any real effort into weight loss, and I'm really finding the program very livable. Its really opened my eyes to portion sizes. I had no idea just how much I was putting away everyday, thinking I had it all under control. Its also helping me make better choices for my 4 year old daughter too. I think twice about giving her a heaping helping of ice cream for dessert. Instead we all share things like fruit salad, or berries and spoonful of whipped topping. She is just as happy and I feel way better about what she's eating.
I've only just begun, but I am down 7lbs so far, and I'm pleased with that. I'm in this for the long haul, and was not really looking for a diet, but more of a lifestyle change. I'm buying more organic and natural foods, trying new fruits and vegetables, cutting out as much processed crap as I can. I'm doing it for myself and my family, and at this point I couldnt be happier. I don't feel deprived, or hungry. I feel healthy and I feel like I'm making better decisions for my family.
So the point of this post is not to be a walking commercial for WW. I hope everyone is able to find the right program for themselves, one that inspires them to achieve their goals. So far WW is exactly that for me. I know I'll have my rough weeks, but I'm making changes and I couldnt be happier!
