Weighty Wednesday -- WW 360 concept

I tried. Really, I did. I tried to like the concept of the 360 program from Weight Watchers.

But I don't like it. Not at all.

The idea behind the 360 part of the program--as I understand it--is to work on an area of your life for a month to make that part of your life--to bring it full circle, if you will.

To me, it's like beating a dead horse.

Up until January--when this program started--Weight Watchers and I had been psychically connected in a weird way. When I needed a certain concept in my life--they presented it during the meeting. This happened for over a year and a half worth of meetings and 50 pounds of weight loss.

Now, they are talking about different forms of a particular subject ad nauseum for an entire month!

I feel like I'm a kid again . . . and you know what kids do when parents lecture them?

They tune them out. They do the opposite of what the parent wants.

I'm having a hard time with dropping this little bit of weight that I had gained, because the meetings aren't inspiring me or motivating me to push through my obstacles. And don't tell me that they have a gazillion researchers discovering that this is the best way.

Because, for me, it isn't. I'm one of the blips outside the core research subjects.

Think about all those scientific studies that "proved" one thing or another only to have it vilified ten years later?

Food 'pyramid' anyone?? I knew this was a bad idea from the get-go.

Though I love my leader and my group, I don't love the program, which means I'll have to go through my old blogs to find the incentive to get back to goal.

In my mind, the 360 program is a PROGRAM FAIL . . . so I guess it really was a good thing that I decided NOT to be a Weight Watcher leader, because I'd have a hard time selling something I didn't fully believe in.

Right now, I feel as if I'm alone in this weight struggle and I don't like the feeling. I wish Weight Watchers would return to the way the program was set up the last two years. I understand the need to change and keeping it fresh.

But like what's happening with Facebook--new and changed does NOT always equate with better.

Later, Peeps!
