So this thread has been pinned without a post for 7 months.
I have hesitated for a long time, mostly out of self-consciousness. But today I thought I would share my story.
I went to the Star Trek convention in San Francisco in November, and my wife and I had photo ops with everyone there.
When we got them back, I was mortified. I have always been heavy, but getting the objective view of the camera, I was disgusted with myself. I knew it was time to do something.
So, on January 8th, 2013, I started Weight Watchers online. I figured, if it could work for the Round Mound of Rebound, it could work for me.
Here we are three months later. I have followed the plan religiously, tracking all my points daily, doing everything the plan says to do.
As of today, I have lost 28.5 pounds.
For the first time in my life, I had to buy smaller pants. I have more energy. I just feel better.
I have another 26 pounds to go to hit my goal weight, but I'm more than halfway there. I can't speak for anyone else, but for me, the plan works. It makes sense. It's easy to follow. The online tools are great.
So I will keep going.
Here's to all of us who struggle.
