Return to Weight Watchers

My weight is my biggest limiter to my athletic success (sometimes trumped by my lack of brain power like at Timberman but I've almost beaten that thought to death). Even with all of the training I've been doing, my weight has been bouncing around a small range for a while now so I decided I needed to do something to break this cycle.

I've had success on Weight Watcher's in the past and I realize I need a way to jump start my metabolism into losing weight mode again so I went to a meeting this morning. The scale said 258.2. Of course, this was with clothes on but the number was not completely unexpected.

I'm going to try to follow the program as closely as possible to get on track. I don't know why I feel a little like a failure for having to go back to WW but I do. The good news was that the scale was still lower than the last time I went to WW. I know shouldn't feel bad since I'm doing something about my problem and I hope that in a few weeks and months I'll look back at this day as an "on your left" on the road to success.

Geez Rockstar, you beat me to it! I too am going back to the WW and will be writing about it in the near future. In the meantime, I apologize if I'm posting twice - may have made an error previously. But I wanted to say congratulations on finishing what sounds like a very grueling Half Ironman. Although it is frustrating when we aren't able to perform to the level that we know we are capable of, I hope that you still take pride in the fact that you finished and really accomplished something. I am still hoping to achieve what you have already accomplished! I admire your courage and hard work and look forward to your continuing adventures.
