Just can't decide!

I am torn between ways to jumpstart some waning motivation for losing this weight. I have looked, and I am within my healthy weight range, and bmi. But I am at the very last pound for it! If I gain 1 lb. I am back to overweight! Even though I am in the appropriate range, I feel like I still look ( to myself and others) FAT! I feel like I should try and lose 10-15 lbs, and maintain that weight.
Anyhow, I am NOT doing well on my own. I have been eating whatever and whenever I want. I am still maintaining my current weight, but definately will NOT be able to lose like this. I don't look forward to feeling deprived, or tracking, doing different exercises, yadda, yadda, yadda! I KNOW what to do, I just don't like doing it. Plain and simple. I am lazy like that. I will struggle the rest of my life with wanting to eat until I feel stuffed!
So there is a program that I have been introduced to called Runner's Fuel. It is designed to help you lose weight WHILE eating properly while training for running events. There is a program for 5k, 10k, tris, and a full marathon(which is what I am training for). It breaks down what to eat on running and non running days, what to eat pre/post run based on time of day and how many miles that day. Very detailed. I am very interested in it. It would be a 13 week program since that is my training plan til marathon day. It costs $100.
Also, there is a new Weight Watchers 13 week program starting at my church this coming Wednesday night. This is the same 13 weeks for my plan too. It is a group of people I know and will see very often. Every Wednesday and Sunday, which would give me LOTS of reinforcement/encouragement. This will cost me $132.
Or, the 3rd option, is quit being so dang lazy, and do it on my own! Which hasn't been working to my advantage lately. This will cost me $0.
So, any suggestions???????????
I need to make a decision this weekend to begin a program by Monday or Wednesday.
Thanks for any input!
