Are there any young people in weight watchers in or near Providence? I’d love to meet up! And maybe go to a meeting where the main topic is “how the hell does facebook work?”

I am sick and tired of being fed up with my body. I’ve been slipping, and getting high with friends and hanging out, and really not watching myself. I haven’t been going to the gym. To my credit, I was sick for a bit, and then had a pulled leg muscle. But you know what? Not really excuses for letting myself go. I know that I am worth this. But even as I say that, I falter. I don’t even know where I’m going with this except that I am desperate to change my body and to become more confident. I’ve been stuck in this cycle for the better part of my life, and it’s turning me into someone I don’t want to be. I see all of these before and after pictures, and they’re inspiring, but also make me so sad. I’ve been on weight watchers for 11 months now, on and off. I have lost around 30 pounds, and that’s great, but when I see the other people, and the time it took them, and the effort they put in, i know that I can do better than what I’ve been doing as of late. I have about 100 pounds to lose. Goddamn, if I’m not more happy with who I am by then, there’s gonna be hell to pay. And not just because I’ll have a healthier, leaner (hopefully) body, but also because I’ll know I got there all by myself.

Ok. I will admit that I have been slacking off. And for the people who read my stuff - sorry that I keep writing with less than great news. I’m just keeping it real, dude. Anyway, hopefully will be getting back on track soon. Much love!

I can’t even move. Today has put shame to this whole weight-loss thing. It’s been all carbs today, and a lot at that. Though, it is conference week. And it’s only a few more weeks until I’m home and able to use my kitchen and have fresh veggies at my disposal, and my bike! Super excited. I’m literally counting the days.

Wait! I just weighed in, with my own scale (little baby me doing weight watchers on my own) and it looks like I lost weight! The scale was fluctuating between 226 and 228, but didn’t get up to 229 so I think I lost weight, somewhere around 2-3 pounds! I’m in the 220’s! Officially. This is a great feeling.

I’m slipping. I’m telling myself I’m sticking to Weight Watchers, but I haven’t been able to count all week. I’ve been overeating as a result. I’m looking forward to the summer, where I’ll have my work (very active) my bike (1000 miles this summer!) my home friends (keep me happy and constantly moving - less likely to eat) and a KITCHEN (I’m seriously sick of frozen food. This is getting ridiculous, and is no doubt a huge part of my frustration.) I’m going home soon, and I’m continuing Weight Watchers on my own this time. It’s kinda scary, I have to admit. Here’s to hoping I can do this. Gonna be trying to find more support on tumblr, as there’s such a good community here.

Today, as I was parking to get weighed in, there was a man coming out of his car in the spot right in front of mine. He was struggling just a big to maneuver himself out of the car, and when he placed a foot on the ground, I saw that he had a prosthetic leg. When I opened my door, he glanced at me, making eye contact, before turning around to go into the store right next to Weight Watchers. Now, I know that he is just a guy going to the store, but it hit me - here is this man, who has only one leg (technically) and he is going about his daily agenda. I am a woman, with two functioning legs, and no disability (other than my weight, which only counts a little) and yet I do not take advantage of my legs and my ability to move and get around. Yes, this weight thing mars my self-confidence, but that is no excuse to not get up and do something. Just anything. It’s pathetic, and shameful to the people who actually have a struggle. At least it is for me, I am in no way saying this is how everyone should feel. I am going to use this as motivation, as an extra push when I feel like I really can’t go work out. (I haven’t started working out as of now, but I will start in the near future.)
