I'm ready for my closeup Mr. Demille

(No, not me..  BTW this photo of Gloria Swanson completely freaks me out)

I kind of imagined myself as slightly subversive and revolutionary when I started my blog this past March (not accounting for the fact that probably 500 million people have blogged before me).  The blog was not part of the official Weight Watchers universe as, at the time, we did not have blogging functionality (we do now!).  It was kind of my own thing, as much personal as professional, and it was not officially recognized by the Weight Watchers website.  As of Tuesday, the tech guys are putting in links on the big website to expose my navel gazing and poor writing skills to a larger audience.

So for those who may be meeting me for the first time.  Hi.  For your convenience, I have collected a selection of links to previous posts that you might find helpful for getting a fast update of the story of me.  So, in chronological order:

  1. In the Beginning
  2. Documented proof of my Lifetime Membershipness
  3. Gruesome things I used to eat (for good reason) before Weight Watchers
  4. A man going to meetings
  5. Restaurants can be hard
  6. My dog can eat faster than me (but only just)
  7. Big weakness #1: airplane food (blech)
  8. French hotels have bad gyms
  9. How I learned to eat breakfast
  10. Weight loss celebrity gone horribly awry
  11. How I learned to eat lunch
  12. Unmastered habits
  13. Learning to exercise
  14. Bad music for the sake of good workouts
  15. Respecting the scale
  16. More on habits: naught & nice list
  17. Regular exercise: habit or impressive discipline?
  18. Needing (and finding) a reason to stay the course
  19. Lose for Good, my Before & After shots, and a bunch of groceries
  20. How to be less irritating on maintenance
So that's about what I've got down on paper so far.  I do, by the way, realize that there is a handy navigation system over there on the right.  I just thought this might be a more convenient way of doing a quick spin.

By the way, I spent last week flying to and from Sydney with each leg of the commute being 27 hours.  Suffice it to say, I ate with reckless abandon.  Still haven't conquered the airplane.  I did, however, work out lots and lots including this weekend.  I will, in fact, get my tail back on program this week.  Travel or not.  Really.


  1. I love your blog! Its nice to see the CEO is a human being and being human. Rare indeed. Keep it up.

  2. You crack me up. I've been following this blog for awhile, but it looks like there are a few posts I've missed here and there.

    That Gloria Swanson photo actually made me laugh out loud.

  3. I'm a blog-junkie. Glad to see weightwatchers is keeping up with the technology.

  4. I dont know which image is creepier: Clutch Cowgo from the last post or Gloria Swanson as Norma Desmond ;P

  5. Thank you for the great blog. I am not a blog reader, but yours hits home for weight watchers people like me. It is humorous and real. Please keep it up!

  6. Just started reading and I really enjoy your blog! I am interested in how and why WW works so well. Thank you for sharing your personal thoughts as the CEO.
