The end of weight watchers and a challenge!

I had to quit weight watchers last night. It’s only $39.99 per month, which is pretty reasonable, and the group is really supportive; a great group really. Unfortunately as of September 1st, our rent is doubling, and we are going to be so incredible tight, it’s not even remotely funny. My weight last night was up 0.4 pounds, which yes, is a gain, but I’m recouping my efforts now. I will be weighing myself on my scale from now on, I think on Fridays.

What also doesn’t help financially is that we’re also trying to get Jeff a membership at the aquatic center, since he quit at 24-hour fitness and hasn’t had any place to go since then. And we’re going camping for both of the first two weekends of the month, so that adds things up as well. I would almost be for cancelling the camping trips, but we haven’t really had much time this summer to camp at all, so I want to take advantage of the chances we have. After all, October will be too cold to camp.

Since I will no longer have weight watchers, I am back at SparkPeople tracking my foods and exercise. Yesterday, I was determined to eat well, within my calories, and I did! Today I’ve tracked everything for my breakfast and lunch that I will be eating, and then I can work dinner around that tonight. I’m getting tired of not seeing any losses, and that’s going to change.

JackSh*t and The Anti-Jared have come up with the idea for the All Loser’s Challenge. This challenge is, for me, a little simpler because it doesn’t require me checking in every day (which I always forget to do), etc. The challenge is simple. Write down your weight now, write down what you want to weigh by December 31st, 2010 and then do it. –The Anti Jared

Simple and sweet. I currently weigh 278.4 pounds. By December 31st, 2010, I will weigh 250 pounds.

What will you do?


  1. Hi Laura!

    Thanks for your message/comment on my blog! :o)

    This is the MP3 I bought/dowloaded a few weeks ago -

    You may want to listen to the snippet at the link above because I know you have to 'like' the voice of the hypnotist and she has an English accent that a non-English person might find irritating! ;o) She actually sounds remarkably like me, which may be why I'm finding it so effective - talking to myself again... lol

    Bye for now

    Patsy :o)

  2. OMG! how do they do that??? i would be so upset if that ever happened to me!! im sorry to hear about the rent thing.. it must be so stressful..

  3. I think you'll do fine without WW - the money really does add up!

    And I'd take advantage of the weather to camp while you can.

    Okay - the last time I weighed myself I was 171 - by December 31 I'd like to be 150! :D
