Jumping Back On The Weight Watchers Wagon
Two weeks ago I joined Weight Watchers...... AGAIN.
It's probably my 6th or 7th attempt at trying the program. But believe me when I say it's NOT Weight Watchers' fault that I've joined, dropped out, joined, dropped out, etc..etc. I know it's 100% me and my issues with food that have prevented success in the past. I tend to get to a point of losing 20-25lbs and then think, "I'm good, I've got this." Yeah, no, I don't.
Weight Watchers is one of the only diet plans I would spend money to follow. It's more then a diet, it really does teach you to make better choices and if sometimes you don't, that's ok too. I like it because you eat normal, everyday foods. I don't do good with strict diets where you only eat certain foods at certain times. For me it's also about accountability, not that there's any judgement when you get weighed in at a meeting but deep down inside I want the ladies at the scale to be like "wow, good job you're down this week." (I know I sound like a commercial or something but I swear I'm not getting paid to write this.)
I'm one of those people that eats when I'm happy, sad, angry, stressed, bored or in social situations. So you get my drift, I eat all the time, whether I'm hungry or not. Honestly, as I sit here writing this post all I can think about it the box of cake mix and chocolate frosting in my pantry. "Do I make a batch of cupcakes?" It's a real convo that goes on in my head every single day.
So, I decided to share all about it here. I'd also love to connect with anyone who too struggles with weight loss as well. Support and knowing you're not the only one with crazy food thoughts is just as important in this whole journey.
Since I started Sept. 3rd I've lost a total of 5.2 lbs. I wish it was more, I know it could be more. This week I'm going to focus on tracking my food more consistently. It's always been something I don't do well with, which might have a lot to do with why I haven't been as successful as I could be.
