So, here's what's going on with me!

Someone told me on here that I was I meant bussiness in this Biggest Loser contest. Want to know why? Well, someone else told me my blog really helps people because I am real and going through what other people are going through. I try to make this blog be a support to other people and I try not to complain etc. But today I'm going to complain and tell you how I am really feeling and what I am going through. So bear with me, okay?

Last year I lost 80 pounds doing Weight Watchers. I did really good and then the holidays came upon me. I was really scared to let myself eat anything. (Maybe, that's why I did so good?)People kept telling me, "You've done so well enjoy the holiday, you deserve it!" Well, I finally gave in to what people were telling me and I have been yoyoing since November of last year. I have gained back about 20 some pounds and while I still follow my plan, it feels easier for me to give in sometimes because I let myself go free for awhile. Now I have been trying to get myself back on track and I do mean bussiness this time! I have something I really want to spend the money on if I win it. We are going through a rough time financially, even though my dh finally got a new job things are still rough, and we have to cut back on some things. So, my dh said, "Lorie, Weight Watchers has to go." While I know I can do it on my own and he thinks I can too, that group is a huge support group to me and I really don't want to lose it. You know how some people have addictions and need support groups? Well, that's kind of like what Weight Watchers is to me. So, if I win some money through the Biggest Loser Contset, my money is going to pay my $39.95 monthly fee. And in the mean time, I will be using this Biggest Loser group and you all who read this blog as my support group. I started out doing this on my own and I know I can do it! I am going to have a good week! This is the last week before the weigh in for the contest and I want to win so bad. I have been walking a little over 2 miles everyday , tracking, eating right and taking care of myself. I just hope it is enough. If not what do I got to lose,but more WEIGHT! lol!

I hope you do win. You deserve it, and I love that you would use the money to get the support that you desire!

You can do this. I've maintained my loss for a long time, and it's really the best thing I ever did for myself!

Hi Lorie...you HAVE down great so pick your spirits up and dwell on what you have done rather then what you haven't.

It is normal after working so hard to reach a place where you stay the same or fluctuate up and down for a while.

Have you thought about maybe trying to swing the online program instead? That is what I do...there is lots of support there, and it is only 16.95 a month, and it still keeps you immersed in the Weight Watchers environment.

Good luck with the BL!

And I am glad you introduced me to it!

I'm a WW Lifetimer (finally). You know WW has their own forum (FREE). You can learn anything there.

Good luck with the contest. Don't give up.

I wish I had the extra money to send to you each month to help you out with your W.W. meetings. You are an inspiration no matter what, and don't forget that! At least you got right back on that horse. I have been down on myself at gaining back 40 lbs. of the 50 I lost over 3 years ago. I am getting back down to business too. I am starting a jazzercise program tomorrow night. I hope you win and you are so brave at taking a picture of those scales...I guess I should start doing that to hold me accountable.
