Are you ready?

Our first session of Weight Watchers will conclude tomorrow. Throughout these past several weeks, I have lost pounds, gained insight and found hope through your support.

I had no idea what I was in for when I started blogging. What was initially going to be a little side project has become a major part of my life and an even bigger part of my journey. I’ll continue to share my ups and downs through this blog as I begin the next session of Weight Watchers.

But now’s your chance to join me. Many of you have expressed interest in Weight Watchers at Children’s through the Strong4Life Program. Here’s your chance. During this week and next week, plan to attend the Weight Watchers Open House at your campus. If you’re in the Park, join me from 11:45 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. tomorrow (Tuesday, May 18) in Classroom 6 of Building 1644 (NOTE: This is an update!) to find out more about the program. For other campuses, check the home page of Careforce for the schedule.

Are you hesitant? Afraid it won’t work this time? So was I. I sat in the open house 17 weeks ago—bitter, angry and hopeless. But I listened. And I asked myself what I had to lose.

So far the answer has been 40 lbs. I’m excited to continue. And I’m excited to meet more friends in the process.

You are not alone. At our meetings, you will hear the stories of your fellow employees. You’ll nod your head in recognition of their struggles, and you’ll applaud their triumphs—just as we’ll do for you.

Try it. Go to an open house with an open mind. And maybe, just maybe, you’ll learn that you really are ready to change your life.
