Weekly Weigh In: You Inspire Me!

I have thought of a hundred different things to say for this week, but at the moment, I just don’t have the time, but I wanted to put the most important thing out there.


You guys inspired me!!! My followers. My awesome twitter family. My facebook fans. And all the people who stopped by my blog to comment on last week’s post about my struggles. And my success story and before and after picture was featured on the Weight Watchers facebook page on Saturday, and it is the first success story you see for Online members on the Weight Watchers website this week even if you aren’t a member. That brought many new people to my blog who commented or sent me emails or who commented on the WW facebook post… who have been on a long journey, who are thinking about starting back up again, who just started, who are also struggling, or who are thinking about joining for the first time. You made me tear up, made me smile, motivated me, and inspired me. Thank you all!

Alexis {Diva on a Diet}'s Official Weight In on May 8, 2013I have struggled a lot the last two months, but I came out strong this week! Take that 3.2 lbs I gained last week! I lost 3.5 lbs! And was I perfect? Of course not. But I tracked everything, I started running again, I earned 37 Activity Points, and I thought about what I was putting in my mouth! It’s been a while since I had a week like that!

Since weigh-in was yesterday, I’m already into my new week, and it’s already playing out to be another tough one. I have lots of social events. I have a lot of emotional things going on. I’m just gonna try my best. As much as I preach that I’m good at being unperfect, there is still a part of me that feels like I should be perfect, so don’t think I am not always fighting that!

After a fairly emotional day, in which I did not make the best choices for dinner because of it!, I am taking care of me, and hitting the hay early! I just had to say thank you. Thanks from the bottom of my much healthier heart.

    Cool! I didn’t know we were on the Weight Watchers Canada site! (I say we because I got to know several other people when doing my success story that are on that page… Diane, Meagan, Matt, Pete, and Daniel… all so inspiring!) I love to hear that I can inspire others! Much success to you on your journey!

    Its rare I find a success story that do relatable! (Ssme Age, potential same weight loss, similar issues) I’m so happy to find your blog. I’ve been struggling tracking and gained a lb! Ugh. I was so close to losing 15lbs this past week. Thanks for the motivation!

    I just started WW Online this week and I am a little nervous and scared that one more time I am going to fail at losing weight. Finding your story reminds me that I just have to keep trying to do my best. You are an inspiration to me!
