Up, Up and Away.
Up, up is the scale…
Holy crap! I just looked back to see when the last time I weighed this much was and it was back in November of 2010! Horrible…mortified. I feel it too. This is bad. This could get out of control fast. I am panicking. I can’t keep going in this manner. I better turn this ship around and fast. No excuses. Get it together, Jen. You are out-of-control.
There…moving on and trying to breathe and not have a full on panic attack.
That was the up up and now…
Away is me! No more Monday night Weight Watcher’s meetings. It will be my job in the next few weeks to visit different meetings, closer to my house to find one that fits my schedule better that has a leader I enjoy. I am not expecting Jacynta quality. However, I would like to find someone I actually enjoy listening to.
Monday night I tried Jacynta’s replacement. Can’t do it. She is lovely but just not for me.
This brings me to a good point…you are not going to go to meetings if you do not enjoy the leader or like the people there. The people will usually grow on you. They are not as important as the leader. The leader is what can make it or break it. He/She is a key element in Weight Watchers meetings. We have to have willpower, sure. We have to have commitment, sure. We have to have a great attitude, sure. However, leaders are what keep us excited about our meetings. Without a good leader, forget it.
So, for the next few weeks I will be searching, with anticipation to try and find a new leader that inspires me and makes meetings fun. I went so far as to call the 1-800 number and ask the man if he had any stats on the leaders that are leading closer to my house. He did not. He wasn’t very helpful. If I don’t find a new leader, I will be seeking alternative methods for weight loss.
I know I can’t do it on my own but I also know that I need support and encouragement and love. I need someone who is going to cheer me on and encourage me as well as give me tough love all at the same time.
All I know is I better find some motivation fast. That is the highest the scale has been in a LONG time and I am not happy about it. I am not quitting but I have seriously got to get my mojo back. Soon…
Do you go to Weight Watchers? Do you feel your leader is a key to your success?
