Hello - n00b beginning WW this wed

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

My name is Tom and I'm a n00b. I wanted to say hello. I'm 47 and live in Chandler, AZ. I'm not a n00b to trying to lose weight. But I really feel good about my decision to begin weight watchers.

 

I have had success on other programs, but had difficulty sticking with them (i.e. Atkins, south beach, etc...). I do exercise (I have a Lifecycle 9500HR stationary bike). I ride 45 mins a day, about 5 days a week. I am over 300 lbs (probably ~ 315) and I am 6'2" tall. I would like to get to 225. I need to discuss these goals w/ my team leader this week and then I'll know what my plan looks like.

 

I work at a large semiconductor mfg. and WW comes to us every wednesday. They start a new program every quarter and I've decided to join after attending an initial meeting last week. I like the way this program works with real life situations, and helps make healthy choices with real-world options. I travel and need to be able to have a program that I can use anywhere and stick with. I officially weigh in and get my program materials Wednesday.

 

I will likely find some groups here to join. :bcb_up

That would have been my second guess. LOVE Roosevelt! We spend most of our summers there. It's about a 3 hour drive for us but WELL WORTH IT! We didn't make it there as often this summer because of the soaring gas prices. It cost us a pretty penny to haul the boat and 5th wheel. Next year we will definetly be storing our toys in Punkin Center so we won't have to go broke over gas. :bcb_huh: DH would love to figure out how to live there...:bcb_LOL:

Thanks again for the warm welcome. I wanted to start the program yesterday, so I kept track of my breakfast, etc.. wed morning and waited to have lunch until after the meeting. I enjoyed the meeting and some of the returning members are folks I know at work and have noticed their weight loss over the past year. Now I know how they did it. So now, not only do I have meetings at work, I also have a support mechanism there at work with other members, here online, and at home with my wife.

 

I spent more time reading after the meeting and last night. My wife (who is one of those naturally thin - lucky ones) is very supportive. We went shopping last night to make sure we have the right things in the house. We had a nice dinner and at the end of the day I still hadn't consumed all of my 43 points (yes, that's a lot of points).

 

So far today I am tracking everything and starting to get more familiar with the program. I know I have a long way to go (I weighed in at 318.2 and want to get to 225) but I feel good that now I am doing something about it :bcb_up

 

I will make sure I keep riding the stationary bike too :bcb_smile
