Weight Watchers Free Range Again! Finally!

I never imagined that a vacation gain of 6.6 lbs from May would have me struggling and paying Weight Watchers again for 4 months! (One of the “bonuses” of reaching your goal weight, maintaining it and earning Lifetime Membership Status, is that you do not have to pay Weight Watchers to attend meetings as long as you are within two pounds of your goal weight)  June was my first time having to “pay” since I became a Lifetime Member in August of  2014.

My head was overwhelmed by not only the disappointment in myself but the stress that was surrounding me at the time.  A big double whammy!  It took me a couple of months of pouting and making zero progress to help me get my head back on straight.  As they say if your head is right, the body will follow, although in my case it was not immediately.  I was so angry for the entire month of August I even snapped out loud that if I was not back to the “free” range by the end of August, I was done with Weight Watchers.  The anger did not get me anywhere.  But expressing it aloud did get it out and behind me.  Once that last hurdle was past me, things really began changing.

During the month of September I lost 4 pounds which was enough to put me back in “free” range the last weigh in of the month.  Yippie!!!!  The very next week I faced another weigh in and this time it was the monthly weigh in.  If I could maintain or lose, I would regain a month free not just a week!

This past Saturday was my first weigh in for October and I was down! I had lost another point 6! Yay me!! I am free for the whole month of October.  Now my goals are to one, continue the downward trend each week and on the first weigh in for the month of November to be down even lower than the October 6th weigh in!
