On becoming a Lifetime Member
I had been at a healthy weight throughout 2008, but in all my years at Weight Watchers I had never gone through the official process for becoming a lifetime member.
For those not familiar with it, Lifetime Membership is achieved when a member is able to stay within 2 lbs of their goal weight for six consecutive weigh-in's. My first step was to deter
mine my goal weight, which I determined in consultation with my leader, Liz (who rocks, BTW). Second, I weighed in within my goal weight range for six anxious weeks.
On March 17, 2009, I became a Lifetime Member, which entitles me to free attendance at meetings (as long as I stay at my goal weight). I have to say, it was a pretty big deal for me to finally have the official honor of joining this special group of people.
Note the attractive jewelry (it's a key chain with a charm) I acquired as my reward. It's not a pinky ring, so that's a plus.
As I reflect on this, I am pretty happy with the way my lifestyle has changed along the way. I eat healthy (mostly) and exercise lots. I feel better than I've ever felt, and I'm in the best shape and health of my life. Like so many other people, I am forever changed through Weight Watchers.
