So Long WW, It's Been a Good Ride...

That’s right, everyone, I have officially quit WW after 7.5 years. I weighed in for the last time on March 5. It was a hard decision to quit because I’ve been doing WW for so long. But it was time. It wasn’t working for me anymore. It’s a great program and it helped me lose a lot of weight. I’m burned out though and I need to try something different.

So I’m following the Biggest Loser program (hereinafter “BL”). I know, I know, I’m obsessed with the Biggest Loser. I thought I would give it a shot, since it’s clearly successful. I signed up for a 3 month subscription to the Biggest Loser Club. We’ll see how it goes.

The jury is still out as to whether I like the BLC website. It’s kind of cumbersome, but it gets easier the more you use it. I think you can successfully follow the program without using the BLC website. It may be just as easy to keep track of everything in a notebook. However, it is nice that it gives me daily targets for calories, protein, fat, fiber, etc. Otherwise, I don’t know how easy it would be for me to figure out how many calories I should be eating. Here’s to the next three months.

In other news, I've started my own law practice. Don't get me wrong, I'm still looking for a full-time job. However, in the meantime, I'm all set up to take on clients. In fact, I have 3 clients, including 1 non-family member :-).
