I was down 0.8 at weigh in at my Weight Watchers meeting on Thursday. I have been feeling recently like I am not really working the plan, but just going through the motions. I will say in the spirit of honesty that I have been really nervous about trying the new Simple Start plan. Since I have really begun tracking, I feel like I need to continue that trend. I have made the decision that I have to give it a whirl. I feel like if I don't that I will ultimately regret it because I will have that "what if I did it and it worked??" feeling. I owe it to myself to try. If I don't like it or don't do well, I can honestly say I tried. If it does work, then I've only lost weight...and how is that a bad thing?
So, I have been seeing many people post about their different variations of the 100 day challenge. A lot are very inspirational. I am thinking of my own variation. I am thinking of a No Excuses 100 day challenge. I will not lie, challenges are sometimes hard for me to keep up with, but I feel like if this one is self imposed, that it may be a little different. I have requested assistance from my family. I haven't decided all the perimeters thus far, but I'm thinking that I will try to follow the Weight Watcher plan (whether it is counting PointsPlus or Simply Filling after Simple Start), working out at least 3 times per week, if I get more, that's a bonus. Here's the thing, my birthday is coming up at the end of next month, but I have the momentum now to do this. I am thinking I just do it anyway. This is a lifestyle change, not a "diet" and I'm going to have celebrations along the way. My friend at WW, Carla managed to lose even during her birthday week. I think I can totally do this. Anyone want to join me?
