Thinking about giving the Core plan a try
Good morning, Sistas! I finally have a minute to get on here and post. With my husband gone to New Orleans, I just don't seem to have the time to do anything anymore. It's a quiet Sunday, though, so here I am.
In my other thread, someone had asked how I was doing on program. Well, I haven't. To be honest, it has been very hard for me to avoid the sweets as I am a serious emotional eater. I haven't fluctuated too much on the scale, though. But now I'm really wanting to get back on it and go.
Funny thing is, a few weeks ago I had decided to sell all my WW stuff on Ebay since I wasn't following the program. Bids were getting up kind of high, too, when all of a sudden my auction was yanked. I was told that I was in some sort of copyright violation by the Legal Dept. of WW and that if I tried to list my auction again, my Ebay acct would be suspended! They said that the WW stuff is for sale in the WW group meeting atmosphere only and not intended for Ebay. Ummm okay... I wonder how many of the other hundreds of Ebay listings were yanked, too?
Anyway, instead of getting mad or freaking out, I found myself laughing. I said you know, Aileen, that just means you were not meant to get rid of this information and you are meant to get right back on!
So this morning a thought hit me. Why not give the Core program a try? It might just be the kick in the &&& I need to get moving.
My long term goal is to reach 140 by the end of June 2006. I am going on this whole I'm-turning-40 panic thing. Don't get me wrong, I am very excited about being 40. I even think I'm going through a mid-life crisis of sorts (because I'm getting a tattoo for my birthday). I will be 40 on October 12 and have taken that entire week off for my birthday gift to myself. My son graduates in June and I really want to look awesome in the pictures, as opposed to the beached whale decked out in lime sherbet that I looked like in my older son's grad pictures. Oh, yeah, nothing like standing next to the ex husband's wife and because she is so short and smaller than I am, I looked like GARGANTUAN BAZOOOOOOOMBA woman. Lawdy dawg, I'm not going through that again.
Okay, okay, enough rambling.... so tell me, who here is on Core or has done Core and what do you think of it???
