So I went ahead and joined the cult last night.

I finally caved to their catchy commercials and clever marketing scheme, and once I got to the meeting I was overcome by their overzealous leader and his story of a changed life and long-term success. Add to that a certain 3-digit number that almost made me vomit in my mouth a little bit and I had no choice. Resistance is futile, as they say.

I joined Weight Watchers. So far, not too bad. You know, for one day. It at least makes sense to me on paper, which is good. We'll see what happens. I'm not brave enough to put "before" pictures or my (shudder) actual starting weight on this blog, but I'll be sure to post updates about this little adventure occasionally. If it's successful, that is. If it's not successful...pretend we never had this conversation.

I used WW to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight. I never felt deprived because I could plan ahead when I knew I was going to have a day of wine, chocolate, and fried stuff. I love their online tracking system - you can look everything up before you decide to eat it.

I have had several friends be successful with weight watchers. I hope it works out well for you.

I've also heard very good things about WW. Good luck!
