Today my sister, Maureen and I went to our first Weight Watchers meeting. We both signed up.
I am not one that can lose weight on my own. I tried. Over and over I've tried.
Yes, I've been to Weight Watchers before. In fact, I've joined a few times. Never made it to my goal weight but I do know it works. I always lost weight when I went.
The only reason it stopped working was because I stopped following the plan and went back to my old eating habits.
So, I'm back again. This time I'm going to use rewards.
They say it's good to set smaller goals and to reward yourself when you reach them.
Since I love to cruise I thought I would use them to help me reach my goals.
How you ask? Well, I've decided that since I have a cruise coming up next month I need to stay on plan the whole month or I can't go. Yes, you heard me. I will not go if I do not stay on my plan.
Then after that for every 25 lbs I lose I will book myself another cruise.
No more just going on a cruise when I feel like it. I have to earn them.
Now when I want to cheat or eat junk food I'll think about if it's worth giving up a cruise or not.
Even when I go on my cruise I know I'll be ok. Yes, they do have tons of food and you can eat 24 hours a day if you want. But, they also have lots of fruits and veggies and they have a gym on board.
There is so much walking on the ship and on the excursions. They even have a morning club you can join where you do so many laps around the ship that equals a mile. Then you get a stamp and you can cash your stamps in for little gifts.
I'm excited. I'm really going to do my best to make it work this time. I know I can do it.
