A First Weight Watchers Weigh-in, Redux (2012 Edition)

Other than a few meetings I attended on campus, Saturday was the first time I’ve actually taken part in a Weight Watchers meeting with the intention of staying for a while (and not just getting program information) in several years.

It was surprisingly nice.

I’m attending with my mom.

I have a confession that’s not really a confession because I’m okay with it.

I’m a huge mama’s boy. Always have been.

I’m really glad that I’m doing this with my mom, because I want her to be around for a long time.

In a few months, Moon Pie will be here. With her driving to my town to go to Weight Watchers with me every Saturday, she’ll be here at least once a week to spend some time with her grandson, too. (And I’m sure my dad will end up coming, too. These are all good things. I want my son to know and love his grandparents.)

I’m going to be brutally honest right now. There was a big part of me that was a little ashamed to have to be going back. I joined Weight Watchers on February 9, 2004, for the first time. I weighed in at 403.8. Over the next year and a half, I lost down to around 250.

Life got in the way. Bad break ups. I fell off the wagon. Hard.

And so it is, that on June 2, 2012, I went to Weight Watchers and I weighed in OVER one hundred pounds heavier than I left back in 2005.

June 2, 2012 Weigh-In
Weight: 358.8
Change From Highest: -44 pounds

(It is about a pound less than my Wednesday weigh-in, but I’m not going to count it. From now on, I am sticking to the Weight Watchers scale for weigh-ins.)

It is what it is. I’m not beating myself up this time. I just pledge to get the weight off and to keep going to Weight Watchers. I view it as my Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. I may need to go forever. Heck, I may make it a goal to someday be a Weight Watchers leader. Let’s wait and see.

I’m doing the program. I am still carefully modifying my diet to keep me mentally happy and keep my body happy. I know from past experience that I can’t use zero points fruit as a Fruit Binge Free-for-All.

I can do this. I will do this. I am doing this.

This guy is coming back.

But without the lame blonde highlights. I don’t know what I was thinking.

    I’ve never seen that picture of you!

    I think you and I weigh the same at the moment – give or take a pound or two. This could get interesting, seeing as we’re both very committed.

      Yeah, that’s a pic that I have had buried for a while. I look forward to getting back there again.

      Let the race to goal weight begin. 🙂

    I’m so happy that you are going back to WW and how great it is that you and your mom are in this journey together. I know how frustrating it can be to see that kind of regain but the great thing is that you know how to lose this weight and you can do it again!!
