My Weight Watcher Goals

July 29, 2016
  1. Join Weight Watchers and get to goal weight. 
  2. Never quit going to Weight Watcher Meetings.
  3. Start a Blog about Weight Watchers.
  4. Become a Weight Watcher Leader.

I promised myself that when I joined Weight Watchers in 2009 (for the fifth or sixth time?) that it would be the last time that I would join. I had decided that I would get to my goal weight, and that I would go to Weight Watcher meetings for the rest of my life.

In 2011, I began blogging about my journey to a healthier me. I kept my blog to myself for one year to see if I was committed to blogging.

It was my hope that by keeping a regular journal (my blog), that I would learn something about myself and my relationship with food. I wanted to understand why food played such an important part in my life outside of my nutritional needs.

One year after starting my blog, I realized that I was learning a lot about myself through writing. I decided to continue blogging. I thought that there might be other Weight Watcher members out there that shared some of my struggles, so I decided to start sharing my blog. 

The blog has become a regular part of my routine and I love being able to connect with so many people that are sharing with me their own journey. 

I knew that being a Weight Watcher Leader was a job that I would approach with great passion. Weight Watchers has been a big party of my life for a long time now. The idea of being able to surround myself with like minded people is just one more way for me to maintain my own healthy lifestyle, while helping others achieve their own goals.

In 2013, I applied for a job as a Weight Watcher Leader. Things didn’t work out at the time, and I put it on the back burner, but never gave up the idea completely.

In April of this year, the time seemed right. I applied for a job as a Weight Watcher Leader.

You guys, after emails and phone calls and interviews and patience and even a little persistence, this week…
