A Letter to Myself

Mama's Losin' It

Dear Michelle,
Why can't you seem to lose the weight you so badly want to lose? It's really frustrating that you think about how you need to lose weight but at the same time, you do nothing about it. Sure, you buy the healthy frozen dinners to control portions. Do you really think that's going to melt off the 50+ pounds you need to lose? Get real!
There is so much you could be doing. You could be for sure be eating better. Let's not forget about all the work out DVDs you have laying around. Remember that one you bought at Target that yous spent your last dollar on? You thought for sure this was going to be the one that got you going. If I recall, it's sitting in your bedroom closet. Nice.
You have so many dreams about buying new, smaller clothes. You even hope that your ginormous chest will shrink if you lose weight. But yet you do nothing about it. Let's get the ball rolling and work on losing the weight. Your body depends on it!

So, there it is. The letter to myself. One of the writing prompts at Mama's Losin' It!
was to write a letter to whatever is keeping you from losing weight. that thing is me. I've written before about it. Once again, I did nothing. It's just so frustrating. But, I have a possible opportunity on the horizon.
I just got word today that WW at Work will have someone at work on the 29th to speak about bringing Weight Watchers to our building once a week. This is awesome for me! I actually did weight watchers before I got pregnant. Combined with the better eating and a temporary break from my BF, I lost 20lbs. The BF and I get back together and before I know it, I'm pregnant! So, any weight loss went right down the toilet.
I've tried many times since having my son 2 1/2 years ago. But, I don't stick to it. That's why I'm super excited about WW coming to work. I wanted to go to meetings but I couldn't find one that fit our schedule. I tried doing it online and by myself. That didn't last long. I am a person who needs to be accountable to other people. Knowing that I have to go and weigh in in front of someone makes me lose weight.
It is kind of funny to me because I work at Tyson Foods. The mecca of all things meat. I work in the sales department. All day I hear about different beef and pork items. I sit there all day drooling over the possibility of having a steak. Since I can't have a steak randomly at work, I settle for cookies or some other bad food. Combine that with a sit down job and I'm pretty much screwed.
So, I'm going to attend the informational meeting next week. I do know that they have to have a certain amount of people sign up before they will commit to coming. I also have to see what the cost is going to be and if we can pay weekly or if it has to be paid in full. I'm not sure if I can fit it into my budget right now.
Mmmm...I wonder what my chances of WW sponsoring me so I could blog about it are. That might be an interesting question to ask....LOL

Exactly. I could stand to lose a ton of weight if I just stuck with it. Darn you McDs with your iced coffees. Oh yeah, and darn you Mellow Yellow!!!!

Michelle - You're post made me a combination of both sad & excited! I remember those feelings, but I also remember being excited about finally making a change & that's when I started actually loosing weight! I hope you find what you're looking for at the meeting. Best of luck to you!

I love WW. I am, even as we speak, trying to talk myself into going to a meeting...but it's hard to fit it in. Doing it at work would be perfect.
