WW Redux – Week 1

Between July 2001-July 2003 I lost 35 pounds on Weight Watchers. Starting at 206 pounds, I made it down to 170. For a while I maintained a site on my progress. This was before I began using a blogging platform, but in the past week I have moved all my entries to this blog. 

On July 18, 2003 I wrote: “Two years, 104 weeks, 35 pounds. 35 pounds that I’ve kept off, and are gone for good.” 

Ouch. I stopped going to WW meetings. 3 years later, 32 of the 35 pounds had returned. I re-enrolled, and wrote a post on my blog. I don’t know how long it took, as I didn’t record it anywhere. (And I actually forgot that I had regained almost the entire weight and re-enrolled in 2006.) I lost 25 pounds, and since then have wandered between 180-190.

I have re-enrolled. My goal is to get back down to 170, and re-evaluate once there. I’m not sure my original goal of 150 is rational.

This past weekend the family went to the Renaissance Festival in Wentzville, Missouri. I had to have a turkey leg, mead, and fried oreos. I still lost almost a pound. The WW plan is still very flexible, but I need to journal what I eat, or I don’t lose weight.
