And He's Off

So, today was my first Weight Watchers meeting.

It was kind of like what I imagine you'd get if you crossed an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting with a Yoga Class.

It was a weird experience and I have to say I was a little embarrassed to be there, I don't think I really made I contact with anyone the whole time because I felt a little silly.

I rocked the scales at fucking 247.5. Jesus.

Basically, the whole thing is about breaking up the process into, dare I say, bite sized pieces.

Now, for my height I always weighed more than I technically should but the last time I was relatively happy with my weight was at about 200 pounds or so, which is what I was in the picture I posted last time so I suppose that's my goal.

My 'membership' is for 10 weeks right now - that's what I've prepaid for - so in that time, I'd be really happy if I could get to 220. That sounds like a lot but given that I'm such a gluttonous pig right now, it probably isn't as bad as it sounds.

So in any case, here's the chart that will continue over the next month and a half:

You can do it, bro. It's all about habits. Do something (e.g. eating healthier, eating less, and getting on the damn treadmill) often enough and it becomes a habit. And then, it's much easier.

FWIW, I was 262.5 at my heaviest weigh-in and I'm now 203, about the same weight I was when I graduated college.

Good for you! I have a bunch of friends that have joined Weight Watchers and loved it. I've finally gotten off my lazy butt and started going to the gym 3-5 times a week so I'm hoping this will help with my own personal fitness goals. (Joe's right, once you start getting into good habits, it's much easier to stay good.) I'm hoping to lose 20 pounds by May. I'll keep you posted.
