So I’ve been trying this on my own for almost a year now, and I’m not getting anywhere. I realized today that it’s time to look for some outside help. After reviewing my options, like weight loss clinics where they claim to help but really just put you on diet pills, a personal dietician and/or personal trainer (both woefully outside of my price range), and joining yet another expensive gym that I won’t attend, I’ve decided to try something that actually works. I joined Weight Watchers.
Of course, it’s Mardi Gras, so hell if I’m starting this now. I’ll weigh in tomorrow morning and try to drink a lot of water (which I’ll need to do anyway to counteract my planned bad behavior), and I don’t plan to eat anything crazy this weekend, but one can never tell what’s going to happen during the Gras. On Wednesday morning, as Lent begins and my hangover starts to kick in, I’ll jump into gear and be a good girl with the help of the folks at WW.
Of course, watching my diet will not be my only move. I’m going to make another attempt at keeping a daily running plan and waking up super early to get my exercise in early.
I’m too tired to keep writing. Time to catch a few hours of shuteye, then resume homework in hopes that I can knock it all out of my path by 2pm tomorrow afternoon, just in time to get my parade costume finalized and go to work with the Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus!!!
