Today I go back to my first Weight Watchers meeting in a year and a half. I went strictly online when I switched positions with my job. I have hit a weight loss plateau, and desperately need to bust through it. I am watching what I eat, not closely enough, I will admit. I am also working out on a more regular basis. I think that the meetings give me something that sticks with me through the week, and is the little voice in my head that I NEED to hear.
However, going to the meetings...I do have some reservations.
1) I hate crowded meetings. The older I get, the more I hate crowds. No real explanation for that one.
2) I won't be able to attend the same meeting each week because of my wonky work schedule. I am scheduled off Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday this week...next week it is Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. No consistency with my days off means that I will have a new weigh in date each week. I don't want that to deter me.
3) I can not, CAN NOT stand the "know it all Nellies" that always seem to be in a meeting. What I love about online is that if I come across a post or a topic that either does not interest me, or annoys me...I simply don't read it. In a meeting, I am sitting there for a half an hour listening to the same people say the same thing each and every week. What works for them does not always work for me. I love to weigh myself each and every day...oh, that is a big no-no in some people's eyes. Whatever. Do what works for you, and keep it the hell to yourself. I don't mean to sound bitter or angry...but I get tired of the same crap, different week.
Despite the way it sounds in this post, I am actually excited to be going back to my meetings. I am excited for the accountability and the support that I have from my friend Michele. She works out with me most days and she is going to the meeting today to cheer me on. I don't know what I would do without her.
At least I have someone to sit next to and roll eyes with when someone goes on a little too long today!!!
Love to All.
