I attended my first Weight Watchers meeting last night, and I left feeling rejuvenated. It is really important for me to understand and be able to relate to the meeting leader. If she's some 95 pound woman with an "it's easy to loose weight" attitude, I can't see eye to eye with her. However, this meeting leader struggled to loose her weight and she works hard everyday to maintain her weight. She is in the same "boat" most women deal with each and every day. She's real - I like her.
After the meeting I stayed and she explained the plan to me and answered my questions. She told me she understood it was a struggle and that she was not there to monitor or criticize, but to motivate. She wanted to see each and every person succeed.
I'm feeling good about this. I had my Low-Fat toast for breakfast, and my Lean Cuisine is in the freezer for lunch. I even packed a bag of grapes and a dish of fruit salad to satisfy any hunger pains I might encounter throughout the day.
Wish me luck!
