The Resolution of Weight

2007 draws to an end and 2008 is about to begin. We still don’t have hover-boards but I think it will be a good year nonetheless. Whether or not you believe in New Year’s resolutions, they get made, broken, and even executed every year. Losing weight always appears to be at the top of the list. I had posted about HAP medical insurance’s commitment to this battle in its subsidization of Weight Watchers. Unfortunately I no longer have HAP, but joined Weight Watchers eight weeks ago on my own dime and it was the best investment I have ever made. I have lost 15 pounds to date and aside from the weight loss, I am more thrilled with the knowledge of how to lead a healthy life and put my YMCA membership to good use. Detroit, good luck with your weight resolutions, I have to come up with another one.

    Way to go! I joined Weight Watchers with my mom last year at this time (before I lost HAP and before the $25 deal, boo hoo) and I lost about 40 pounds, learned how to cook, and know more about foods and meals other than cheeseburgers and fries! Plus I saved money on clothes because all of the stuff hiding in the back of my closet finally fits again…

    I think 2007 was the first year that I kept my resolution!

    April, thank you for sharing. Congratulations on your weight loss. It is always inspirational hearing others’ stories. Did you do the maintenance plan? I may join that after I get to my goal.

    Yep, I stayed on to do maintenance then to lifetime. My mom is still an active member, so I still try to go every week with her. Now that it’s free for me, I find that I don’t even dread going!
