We tease him a lot cause we've got him on the spot, welcome back welcome back welcome back

The other day I logged on for the first time in quite some time onto the Weight Watchers community pages for a squizz. Before doing the MB12WBT I did WW.  As a matter of a fact I'm a dubba-ewe dubba-ewe junkie from WAY back when.
I first joined up with the Ws when I was 20. I weighed about 100kg. I loathed myself. By the time I was 21 I had lost about 35kg. Back then the plan was to eat so many proteins, carbs, fats etc a day.
I really really loved WW & the support network it provides.  Over the years I have lost & gained lost & frickin gained. I ALWAYS end up back at WW. I know that it works.

Don't get me wrong people. I totally LURVE the MB12wbt programme. It flickin ROCKS!
But after visiting the WW site I couldn't stop thinking about the programme and in particular how much I missed all the amazing zany funny (slightly disturbed) people in the WW community.
I felt myself being drawn back into this world like Spock being beamed up to the Enterprise.
I think the cincher was discovering that Toni Wood is the leader now at Northlakes meetings.
Who is this Toni Wood?
WELL...... only one of most inspiring amazing gorgeous women like totally EVER.
Oh and I might mention that she was the WW 2011 QLD Healthy Life Awards Finalist.
You can read more about Toni here:

So, yesterday I signed up to do WW Unlimited. I immediately felt good. Like I had been wrapped in a leopard print Snuggie from Demtel fresh from the dryer. Arrrrrr It's good to be home. Pass the Jarrah Hot Choc drink. I was totally expecting TBF to dramatically smack his forehead & exclaim "Jesus Wept Woman! Will you make up your flippin mind! If it's not one thing it's a bloody nutha!"
Instead, bless his hairy face, he smiled and said "Oh Ok no worries then. Did you listen to the podcast about What Nutmeg Does today?"... He's so awesome. (my next blog will be all about TBF & the influence he has had on my life and weight losses & gains)

The last time I was doing WW I lost 7kg but stopped going to meetings, frankly because the leader was a complete deadshit with the personality of a wet sock filled with rocks.
It was also hard for me to sick to the programme because of my raging alcoholism. It's hard to stay in your points when you are knocking back 3-4 bottles of the grape each week.
Now I am a boring soberette, I think I will find it alot easier. I have also learnt heaps & heaps from doing the 12wbt especially when it comes to exercise and eating CLEAN.
So now you lucky things, you will get to read all about Pro-Points.
If you are into things like watching soil erosion and reading about the annual molting habits of the Hungarian albino sloth then my blog is for you.
Fucking rivetting stuff.

Welcome back,
Your dreams were your ticket out.
Welcome back,
To that same old place that you laughed about.
Well the names have all changed since you hung around,
But those dreams have remained and they're turned around.
Who'd have thought they'd lead ya
Here where we need ya
We tease him a lot cause we've hot him on the spot, welcome back,
Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back.
