Time For A Change

Hey ya'll!!!
 
Remember this post?
 
Remember my assertion that I was going to rid myself of my double chin this year?
 
Well I took steps today to do just that.
 
I literally just hit "Complete" on my first ever subscription to Weight Watchers.
 
I'm a little nervous about this.
 
A little scared of failing.
 
I'm that person who avoids doing something she thinks she might be bad at because failing is worse than not doing it in the first place. Maybe it's time to work on being braver as well. Ya think?
 
I have never done a diet before. I know there are some of you who have been on WW before and trust me. I'm really interested in hearing your stories. I want to know if the point system worked for you? Was it really as easy as they say it is?
 
Husband-Man and I are horrible at staying in for dinner. We try very hard to do so but life gets in the way for us a lot and we end up going to have Mexican or sushi or something else because it's easier, there are less dishes and neither of us has to sacrifice time we could be using to do something productive (like play with Baby G and M, or watch the next episode of Castle, or exfoliate, or try a new hairstyle...) to cook.
 
Are any of you like me? Or do you all have your heads on straight? If you have your heads on straight...can you help me straighten mine?
 
Anyway...I'm looking forward to trying this. It's something I've looked at a million times and thought about and considered and thought about and considered and then backed away from because I was scared. I'm starting to think I really am a "Fraidy Cat" and I don't think I like this new part of myself I have discovered. I'm gonna "Woman Up"!!!
 
I'd love it if you join me. I haven't logged into my account yet but if it is possible to have friends on WW, like you do on Facebook...I'm listed as ShelleyFrank7 and I'd love to be your friend. Find me!
 
Wish me luck. I hope I don't need it but I'd like to have it just in case.

Smooches!
Shelley

Shelley, I think you should strongly consider purchasing the Renegade Diet by Jason Ferruggia. It's a nutrition book (workout related) that will challenge most of your conventional thinking about diets in general.

It can't be more than $30.

This book will give you ideas on how to dine out daily for dinner and still make your diet work.
