just revisiting this and passing along to you - when reworking the budget i thought long and hard - some things i have eliminated - and i looked very carefully about going back to weight watchers - they had the deal on - free e tools and no registration- but for me the meetings are really important - supportive and people converse. so i have given me a time limit - much as with spark i have set goals etc -
but i guess some of us have to have certain schedules, rituals, rules and accountability face to face.
the weight loss is slow - but i have come to terms over the last five years - i have seen my thyroid do very wacky this to me and my body. i can only do what i can do - now that my thyroid has settled - i am hoping my metabolism will be 'good to me' and co operate. i have lost 2.7 pounds - in three weeks - it won't set the world on fire = but it is the right direction.
if you feel an investment in yourself may be too much - please don't - you are important - certainly more important than a magazine subscription, or whatever. you can always indulge later on if you still want to.
