What do you want from me?

I feel that it is necessary to look at why I have drop out of weight watchers in the past. Well I stopped losing weight. I stopped doing what I needed to do to make ww work for me. Here are a few reasons I stopped working the weight watchers plan.

-I wasn't working the food plan and working out at the same time
-I was abusing the system/finding fiber loop holes
-Not drinking enough water
-the numbers, all numbers all the time, got to me. 
-self sabotage- don't buy cookies!
-I was counting points of parts of the meal then adding them together. 
-ex. 1 pita =1pt but 2pitas=3pts
-I found it so hard to socialized because I felt that I couldn't eat what I wanted to eat or drink alcohol freely if I wanted to ( I really don't drink much at all in general, only when I'm out with friends)
-I plateaued and couldn't get past 175 for months
-I got mad that I was paying so much money to NOT lose weight.
-I took a break which lasted too long, got out of hand, and never ended.
-I blamed the program
- I gave up on myself because it was easier then trying harder

SO just some ideas that I wanted to get out there so that I don't fall into the same mind traps again. Right now I am working on...
-drinking my water
-working out on the regular
-prepaying for my first 10 weeks of weight watchers.

Next week ....weight watchers!

I think I might be jumping back on the WW train as well. Like you I gave up because I wasn't losing weight (mostly because I wasn't working the program 100%) and I got sick of counting numbers. I do WW's can work though, I mean I did lose 40lbs. I think I'll be doing WW's online though, I just can't seem to get myself excited for meetings. Good luck and let me know how it all goes!!
