Time for Me 2.0

My attempts to link Weight Watchers with all my other iPhone apps was only one of the problems I had this week. It definitely did not help to have my PointsPlus values going all crazy, but I had other issues too. 

Rather than spell out all the things I did wrong last week, I thought I'd take a cue from the meeting topic for the week and talk about how a healthier, "Me 2.0" Weight Watchers member would act, and how I want to act:

  1. Me 2.0 will find a way to track that works instead of trying to turn her tracker into a toy.
  2. Me 2.0 will make sure to take a water bottle to work so that she could drink water all day.
  3. Me 2.0 will pack a snack for work and know the PointsPlus value of it. 
  4. Me 2.0 will keep the house stocked with fruits and vegetables.
  5. Me 2.0 will be sure to get plenty of activity for stress relief.
  6. Me 2.0 will remember that it's okay to feel grief.
  7. Me 2.0 will prioritize her sleep.
  8. Me 2.0 will be speak kindly to herself.
Me 2.0 is not sharing her weigh-ins on her blog anymore. It adds a lot of pressure to a situation that is already pretty high-stress for me. I will let you know when there is good news to share.


  1. I just realized I hadn't commented on this post (I usually use a blog reader which doesn't let me comment). I really love all your "Me 2.0" goals and I COMPLETELY get not wanting to post your weigh ins on a weekly basis. While I really enjoy blogging about my WW experience, I'm not sure I could deal with feeling obligated to post my scale results online. Maybe if I had an online membership and didn't have the accountability of the meeting room I might feel differently, but I always felt like losing weight is hard enough and the scale is so imperfect (see what I did there?) without introducing external expectations. Especially with so much "life" going on, you are so inspiring! XOXO

    1. I like what you did there!

      I am back to meetings with my original leader, and that helps. I have a scale goal for my birthday, which is coming up soon.
