Weightwatchers AGAIN

Since having the ride in the ambulance and a day in Coronary Care last week I've decided I need to change my lifestyle and start caring about myself and my future.  On MondayI went back to my GP for a check up and my bp is still higher than it's ever been before.  Scary.

So on Wednesday night I went back to Weightwatchers (for about the 6th time) as I know it has worked for me in the past.  I love being with other enthusiastic people and sharing in their success.  And I really really want to feel better and be well!  I've had a real fright with my heart and since it is an ongoing condition I need to feel confident that I'm doing everything I can to stay well. 

It cost $280 (that's a 4 month membership and the Essentials bag plus I get 10% off anything I buy there) ,
I have everything I need to get started.  I'm setting small goals to start and small rewards.  Today I put some fabric on layby at the local shop and they are happy to hold it for 8 weeks, so for every kg I lose I can pay $10 off my layby.  (I could buy it tomorrow if I wanted but this way it'll be more exciting when I get it).  I just need to lose 8 kgs I can bring my fabric home.

Well I'm off to bed to read my WW books and plan my menu for the rest of the week.  I can eat most vegetables and any fruit for no points so that's easy.  From what I learn't tonight I can just about eat anything with the new programme.  So here goes, wish me well!

Hi Karen,

So sorry you had a ride in the ambulance and that you had that scare.
I am sending you lots of well wishes, dear friend and much luck with the weight watchers.
Such a great incentive with the fabric on hold.

Have a lovely week and much luck

Congratulations for making such a positive step to getting your self healthy and well again. I'm sure that you will do well...some times we just need a little jolt in life to get everything back on track.. I love the idea of a reward especially when it's fabric...Looking forward to following your achievements. All the best Tracee
