Read at my Weight Watchers Meeting

'Twas the week after Christmas, and all through the house
Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse.
The cookies I'd nibbled, the eggnog I'd taste
At the holiday parties had gone to my waist.
When I got on the scales there arose such a number!
When I walked to the store (less a walk than a lumber).
I'd remember the marvelous meals I'd prepared;
The gravies and sauces and beef nicely rared,
The wine and the rum balls, the bread and the cheese
And the way I'd never said, "No thank you, please."
As I dressed myself in my husband's old shirt
And prepared once again to do battle with dirt
I said to myself, as I only can
"You can't spend a winter disguised as a man!"
So away with the last of the sour cream dip,
Get rid of the fruit cake, every cracker and chip
Every last bit of food that I like must be banished
"Till all the additional ounces have vanished.
I won't have a cookie - not even a lick.
I'll want only to chew on a long celery stick.
I won't have hot biscuits, or corn bread, or pie,
I'll munch on a carrot and quietly cry.
I'm hungry, I'm lonesome, and life is a bore
But isn't that what January is for?
Unable to giggle, no longer a riot.
Happy New Year to all and to all a good diet!

I'm almost thirty pounds down now, from when I started WW. Very close to having lost all my pregnancy weight from both children!

i did join actually. and i really struggled with it, so i quit. and, i just started following it again (counting points and weighing in once a week, but not attending meetings), and i'm having much more success this time around.

That's awesome! So what's different this time? (Except the obvious of not attending meetings)

Congratulations! I see they now have a totally online program. I've thought about looking into that one. But I need something that can be adopted to my "Eat at restaurants 600 meals a year" lifestyle. Or maybe I just need to get rid of that lifestyle.

Actually, WW can be adapted to the restaurant lifestyle :)

It's a lifestyle as opposed to a diet. I'd give it a shot!
