Then I read einsteins quote on the definition of insanity and it was like He was talking directly too me and I had my 'A'ha' moment . Here was me stuck in a dieting groundhog day permanently expecting different results doing the same thing over and over.....definitely insanity. In no way is this a slimming world bashing post but It just doesn't work with my lifestyle anymore and the plan had changed too .
Some off my work mates had amazing results with weight watchers I used to always see them posting meals and cocktails all week long social butterflies that they are , no looking for a jacket potato &beans or steak for these girls!! I want to be like them. I want my life back!! Thats it I got online read up about the plan found a local group on line. Gave the lovely cathy a ring bless her I rang on a friday night interrupting her movie night with her family. The next morning I arrive to a lovely warm welcome . Buy everything in sight If I'm doing this I want to do it 100%and I want to know everything about these smart points.
Loving everything about this plan and even the way the meetings are run . None of this lets go round the group and talk about your weightloss/gain and your week .As you remember from an earlier post on furcoatbigknickers .This drives me nuts and I lose an hour of my life I'll never get back on really you could bin this off and be done in an hour!!.No offence Brenda from Breck Road Im sure your lovely but listening to your week brings me to a deep dark place in my head !! In weight watchers everything is upbeat and relevant and your in an out 60 mins your done batteries recharged full of motivation for the upcoming week!!.
If weight watchers did G.C.S.E.'s I would get an A . I spent all weekend reading non stop , directories, eat out books, magazines recipe books . I just wanted the best possible start being a total weight watchers newbie so I also attend an additional 3 groups that first week and meet some other coaches . Sitting listening absorbing as much as I could. Week one weigh is rewarded by 8lb loss and I truly love this plan I eat what I love in realistic portion sizes and honestly forget I'm dieting as I just loving life eating what I want. Just gutted I was so late to the weight watchers party!!
So as they say "If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got.' Now that that is madness !! See that Einstein chap is a clever chap!!
See you soon
