Tyra Takes On Weight Watchers: Prednisone Sucks



This past week I have really been in reflection about my weight loss. I had to come to some hard conclusion about my current situation and my weight loss goals, my plan was to talk to my WW Leader about going into a sort of  faux maintenance until I was weened off Prednisone, for the first time I had to say out loud that at this moment in my life weight loss in NOT my main priority.

I went on to the monthly 5K that my local Weight Watchers sponsors (if anyone is interested the next one is Oct 10th @10:30 at the Hyde Park location… all are welcome, you don’t have to be a member to participate) and one of the other leaders who’ve I formed a relationship with asked me about my journey, so I told her what I was going through and she suggested that I after I finish seeing my dietitian have my doctor simply right that due to medical reason I have reached my goal. Then I can go into maintenance and head into Lifetime Membership. I’m frustrated because this is not how I wanted to do this, but as we all know things rarely go as we plan.


Last week I weighed in and I showed a 0.4 gain. I was happy with that despite all the activity I was putting in. I was premenstrual and figured that was it….this week was more of the same as far as activity was concerned and considering the fact that it feels like my face has grown twice it’s size (thanks prednisone moon face) I was expecting a gain but I was not expecting a 3.2 pound gain. I normally would be angry, but I’m doing everything that I’m supposed to be doing, and as much as I hate to say it …. this is simply out of my hand…. as it stands now my total  weight loss on Weight Watchers is  0.8 pounds…. like I said, nothing has gone as I planned.

For those of you interested Last Women Stepping ( 10,000 Steps every single day)….are gearing up for there October Challenge and all are welcome to join. This week I didn’t do to bad if I say so myself. This actually doesn’t reflect my pre-Weight Watchers walk (nearly 4 miles) it was good to get out and I was able to walk on the Lake Front and see the runner who were participating in the Chicago Half Marathon.

Also today I officially completed my 30/30 Challenge with Girl Trek and my golden shoe laces are on the way!!!





Honestly I think this is a good, this will be a true testament to my weight loss, if I can conquer the dreaded Prednisone….. that everything else should be a breeze.
