 Ok it is 2010 and I am going to be 40 in the summer and I don't want to be fat and 40!!

So this week I joined Weight Watchers.............. again!!!  I have tried it before and failed.  I have tried slimming world and failed........... I have tried lots of things and failed.  Not this time!   I DON'T WANT TO BE FAT AND 40!!!!

I am already 3 weeks behind my new years resolution, to loose weight.  The excuse is I hurt my back between Christmas and New Year, but carried on as normal and for three weeks I managed going to work, which is really physical, I am a teacher in a special needs school working with autistic teenagers/challenging behaviour and a young man with cerebral palsy.  However last week I could hardly walk, so off I went to a chiropractor and am off work.  So i brought some magazines, on of them being Weight Watchers.  Found out where my local meeting was and off I went.

:-( Not a good start, I was mortified at how much I weight, but I am determined to do this............

As I am writing this it is day 2 of week 1, I have made some soup, peppers, butternut squash and carrots for 0 points!!! So whenever those hunger pains or for me as a comfort eater, when I am stressed I am going to eat that.  I am also going to make some sugar free jelly, for when I want something sweet again for 0 points.

I don't know how interesting this will be, it is more to give me something to do when I am stressed but don't want to give in to my usual habit of eating rubbish!!!!  

Life can be difficult, and but you never know writing this might just make it more bearable!!!!

Welcome and well done for joining WW!

I'm determined to get all the extra weight off this year, so we'll have to support eachother!

How much are you trying to lose?

hmmmm that is the big question isn't........aiming small at the minute just for 5%, I weigh 18st 10 1/2 lbs. I know i'm not going to loose all my weight before the big 4.0. but as Tesco's says 'Every little helps'!!!

Feeling positive at the moment although it was a difficult start to the day, gave my 7 year old some cough medicine in the night and it has made him more hyper than usual, he has social and emotional behavioural difficulties.....so i am expecting a phone call from his school!!!! Good job i have lots of 0 point soup and jelly to eat!!! I am such an emotional eater!!

What about you?

I got to goal about 5 years ago and have upped half a stone to date, I just need to lose that and a few bonus pounds, but I underestimated how hard it can be when you go it alone!

Not sure I should really be here (I did WW for a while but didn't get on with it), but as I am engaged in the battle to shift the stone or so I put back during the latter part of 2009, can I join in too?

Support is always welcome, regardless of where it comes from...

I'm new here so i don't know about everyone else but i tend to agree with you support is always welcome, regardless of where it comes from.....
So i don't mind.

Are you just cutting down, eating the right foods or following some other plan?

I'm hopping back on board the WW wagon too! I was great at it in between having babies, then I lost my mojo a little and gained all the weight back and more besides! I've joined online but am starting attending meetings again as soon as I can!
Good luck. I look forward to reading about your journey!
