As 2020 came to a close, I started evaluating what had been working for me and what hadn’t, and one of the things that kept coming up was my diet and exercise. I had been tracking my food and exercise with a variety of apps for years, always starting strong, but then losing momentum and motivation after a while. So, I started asking around about what had been working for other people I knew, and one thing kept coming up – Weight Watchers.
Even at my recent annual check-up with my primary care doctor, she mentioned looking into Weight Watchers. At first, I was a bit skeptical, but then she mentioned that she had done it in the past and it had worked for her. Knowing that my own PCP had tried it and seen results was an added bonus. I am not a doctor and recommend that you talk to your doctor before starting any new diet or exercise program.
We talked to friends who had used the program over the years and they continued to rave about it even if they weren’t currently in the program.
So, with all this in mind, on December 31, Eric and I both signed up to give Weight Watchers a try. Over the next few months, I will be sharing my thoughts on the program, what is working, and of course, our meal plan. I am also hoping that by documenting and sharing about it here, I will continue to stay motivated!
