Musings: What's different this time?

What's different this time?As a person who's embarked on numerous weight loss attempts previously, and even been mildly successful, it's not surprising that a question that pops up is 'what's different this time?'

I'm very lucky to have a supportive family who when I came home yesterday with a Weight Watchers booklet under my arm said they would help me in any way they could. However that little voice in my head, the same one that told me another slice of banana bread won't hurt (until the whole loaf was gone, which is what happened Monday) is asking me how this time is going to be different from all the other times I've embarked to slim down in the past.

When I signed up to Weight Watchers yesterday I was asked a few questions about why I was signing up. I was quite surprised by my answers. Previously it was so I could get a gorgeous body and have men fall at my feet. This time it's because I don't feel healthy, and know my weight is going to start impacting my health if I don't do anything about it.

I chose Weight Watchers as it's the only diet (lifestyle) plan I've been able to stick to and see success. Yet, it has always crept back on.

This blog post is just the first step of how I want things to be different. I've seen the positive impact sharing an experience like this can bring to a person, and would like to believe that my documenting the good and the bad parts of this journey will help me to reflect on what's happening and prevent myself from ever finding myself in this position again.

So what's different this time? I'm going to do it!


  1. You can do it! I can identify with everything you're saying, thanks for sharing. When I asked myself why this time would be different for me, I remembered "Nothing changes if nothing changes"... Gotta switch something up! Just don't know what yet... :)

  2. Aw, thank you for your comments :) I like that saying, it's very ture! Best of luck :)
