I generally say I am not swayed by advertising. I am not the first to rush out and try something new; often I am the last. For example I do have a cordless phone, but I still have the one with a cord that was my only phone long past the time everyone else switched. That one still works when the power goes out.
But the Weight Watchers ad that promised my money back if I was successful at losing ten pounds in two months caught me. I signed up after seeding that ad a few times.
I have tried My Fitness Pal which is free, and never stuck to it for more than a couple of days. But this deal, I have now stuck to for a full month and I have lost 4 pounds. I wish it was 5 so I would be on track for the 10 in two months; but those were 4 hard pounds to lose.
I can't fathom why I have stuck to this plan when I haven't managed to stick to any other. Is it the risk of not getting back that $22 per month? Is that my incentive? I really don't know. But, I am sticking to it; I let the second month be billed to my credit card.
I am determined to use less of my extra points and ramp up the exercise and lose those 6 pounds this second month. Then I will weigh five pounds less than I have for 20 years! I will feel like I have met a great goal when I achieve that!
Now, if you decide to join for that deal. Read the fine print; it says you have to be a paid up member to claim that 2 month refund. So, if I understand correctly I better claim it before the second month is up, or I will have to join for a third month to get the 2 month refund.
