And I'm not referring to the chick movie channel "Lifetime". I'm talking about the fact that I made Lifetime at my weight watchers meeting this morning! For those that don't know what this is, it's when you can finally stop paying for weight watchers! :p
Really, this is what lifetime means. When you hit your goal weight, you have to maintain that goal weight for a minimum of 6 weeks in order to make lifetime. You can go 2 lbs above or below your goal weight and still make lifetime. This is just so that you can prove to weight watchers that you can maintain your weight. Also, when you make lifetime, you can stop paying for weight watchers.
I've been paying for weight watchers for over 3 years now. I joined this last time in May of 2007. I get the monthly pass which is $39.95 per month. That's a whole lot of money! It's worth every penny, but I am glad not having to pay it.
Also with lifetime, you really only have to weigh in 1 time per month. You can weigh in every week if you want to, but if you go above the 2 lbs above your goal, then you have to pay for that week and every week until you get back under.
Ok, so what did I do after the meeting? Well, I had a cleaning at the dentist. But after that, I was hungry! I didn't eat before the meeting or my cleaning. I was going to my parents house to let their dog out but thought I should grab something to eat first.
So, where do you go when you make lifetime? Go to McDonald's of course! Ahhh, double quarter pounder with cheese and large fries! Wait? Can you supersize that? Ahhhhh!!!
What? No way! I didn't do that! I stopped and got a side salad with low fat balsamic vinaigrette and a fruit and yogurt parfait! Paired with my parent's homemade pickles from their garden and it's a meal!
Sorry for the bad picture! It's taken with my phone. Well, I had to top it all off with two bulls-eye candies. But I'm stopping there. I'm not screwing this lifetime thing up now that I'm here!
Thanks for all your support. I was down and out a few days ago. I'm definitely feeling a little better today :)
