I went to a Weight Watchers meeting to observe the support provided. I've been on Weight Watchers on and off over the years, but today I felt compelled to go. I've been binging lately. Overwhelmed. I have this mentality that I can do it by myself. I don't need support. I just need "me" to get stronger and emotionally together to lose weight. But I realized that no amount of exercise or writing on this blog will fully support me. I need a group. I need to express myself when a question is asked. I need validation from a bunch of other people struggling . . . and succeeding. I need to hear them. I need to learn from them.
I didn't join today. I will join next week. It will be every Thursday from 12:15 to 12:45 p.m. I will walk to the meetings from work (a total of 2.36 miles); even in the dead of winter. I will weigh in. I will participate. I will learn. And I will succeed.
