First WW Weigh-In

Today was my first "official" Weight Watchers weigh in (for this time around). Although, I really wasn't thrilled with what I weighed, I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't quite as bad as I thought it was. I'm not saying it was good, because it definitely was not; but at least it wasn't as bad as I thought. I won't say yet what it was. I'm just not ready to put that out there yet.

I searched out a meeting with the leader I had back about six years ago. I loved her! I was amazed today that she remembered who I was. Six years ago, along with her help, I lost 100 lbs. Here's to the same kind of determination and will not only to lose that (since I gained it back and then some), but to go all the way to goal, then lifetime. Who knows? Maybe I'll even check in to being a leader. :-D

After the meeting, I went grocery shopping. Man, do I hate to grocery shop, especially on a Saturday afternoon. Grocery shopping will no longer be done by me on a weekend! I did buy a crock-pot, though. I know that I get really bored because I get into a rut eating the same thing all the time, then I lose determination and "will power" to stay on program. I figure with a crock-pot, I can put the food on and then ignore it all day, but have something good to eat for dinner. If anyone out there reading this has any good crock-pot recipes, I would love to hear from you.

Anyway, Day One is almost over. I haven't eaten all my "points" yet, so I need to figure out what to do. It's too late to eat a bunch. :-D


  1. Good for you for getting to WW! Can I ask, what do they charge for a per-meeting fee at this point?

    I can understand the aversion to grocery shopping, but I'm not a crock-pot cooker. Sorry I can't help with that.

  2. I do the monthly pass for $39.95. With that, you get their online e-tools as part of the package. They also have a 10-week plan for $11.90 per week, but you have to pay the $119 up front. Their pay-as-you-go plan is $13 per week, plus a $20 registration fee. These are the prices in my area. I hear they could be different in other places if the center is a WW center or a franchise center.
