**Day 123**

I've decided not to continue w/ Weight Watchers.  I know I only gave it a little over a month, but I, usually, know, pretty quick, when something is a good fit for me, and I'm just not feeling it - the points plus, the meetings - not for me.  I know it's a great program for many, many people, but I want to go back to doing my own thing, and counting my calories - I think, tracking my calories is much easier than trying to figure out the point values for each food, but that's just me.  So, my weigh-in days will go back to being on Fridays.

My period arrived this morning (two days early - what's that about?!), and my day just went downhill from there!  I swear, I was dragging ass, all day!  It took everything I had to get through my workouts, but I did get through them!  I did the 30 day Shred, and I walked 4 miles on my treadmill - it took me 1 hour 10 minutes to do the 4 miles:

I walked between 3.0 and 3.6 MPH, but I spent the majority of the time at 3.5 MPH, and it kicked my butt!  I almost stopped at 3 miles because I was ready to drop, but I forced myself to go one more mile, and I'm proud that I pushed myself to keep going!!


  1. You have to do what works for YOU. I completely understand. W.W. is a great program, but it's not for every body. "every body." Ya know. I liked it, but it got really old...all those point countings and such. Plus, it became really difficult to get to meetings because of the kids. I quit too.

    I like doing what I'm doing: eating less, moving more. It's working. Don't let anyone give you lip for your doing what works best for you. Okay?

    Aunt Flo came this morning for me, too. Mega bummed. She's on a rampage this month too. I can't wait to be done with her!!!!!! ARGH!

    WAY TO GO ON YOUR EXERCISING, too! You are kickin' butt!

  2. I just came across your website and love that you are also sharing your experience with weight loss. I'm addicted to reading your site now as I can laugh and shed tears with you - since I'm doing the same thing (only without the children). Keep up the good work! So inspirational!

  3. Thanks for the support, Chubby. If I'm going to pay $40 a month I feel like I should really LOVE the WW program, but I don't, so that $40 can, surely, be put to use somewhere else in my life!
