I have joined a 12 week on-line Weight Watchers challenge with the goal of losing my damn pesky 5kg in this time frame. What sucked me into this one, as I have joined many and failed dismally, is you are rewarded with sparkly stars when you achieve something. Each week there is a specific goal, for example, the 1st week is to drink 1.5 – 2L of water a day for at least 6 days of week. If you meet the weekly goal you get the green award star. Then there is the weight loss awards: lose anything – Blue Star Award, lose 0.5 – 1kg – Red Star Award, lose over 1kg – Silver Star Award and finally, every 5kg lost on Star Team – The spanking Gold Star Award.
I only discovered this challenge mid-week so although I did weigh myself as usual on Monday, I am going to officially start properly on Monday 14th. As I have been sick for over a week now, I thought it would be wise to just wait to start my WW core program again. I have been drinking my water though but not for entire week so no star for me this week 😦
I was hoping to run this week-end but I am still not 100% so I am going to wait until next week, probably Tuesday or Wednesday. I really want to enter MM Half but will wait until I feel well enough to lap up the excitement 😀
