Well, it has been 6 years and three babies since I last did Weight Watchers.
I’ve decided my five snack-a-day stay-at-home mom habit thing needs to come to an end. My pants are getting tight, and I do NOT want to spend money on new pants.
So, on Sept. 15, I joined Weight Watchers Online. The first time I did Weight Watchers, I faithfully attended meetings, lost 23 pounds, and became a life time member. With three little ones, going to meetings is not an option. I’ve got about 20 pounds to lose.
Why would someone who is so frugal spend $16.95 a month on a diet program?
Because it is worth it!
I know that prior to signing up, my food consumption was probably exceeding the cost of membership every month…. I tend to stress eat – on expensive snacks like ice cream, chocolate, peanuts… and I have issues with portion sizes.
So although I am spending money on Weight Watchers, I’m actually saving money by not splurging on unhealthy snacks.
My grocery bill is also helped by the fact that the Weight Watchers diet relies heavily on fruits and vegetables.(Isn’t that what the food eats?). When you buy in season, you can save a lot of money over pre-packaged, over-processed food.
It is also pushing me to be active. I’m finding that exercise is a good frugal way to pass the time.
In the long run, I know it will be better for my health. I’ve already lost 4.5 pounds, and I feel better knowing that I’m taking control of my diet once again.
Any other WW members out there? Got any tips for me? I’m a little rusty since last time!
