The Struggle IS Real #WeightWatchers
Today marks 9 weeks since I started Weight Watchers (for the 100th time) and at tonight's weigh-in I FINALLY hit my first 10 lb goal. Actually I lost 1.6 lbs for a total of 11.2 lbs. At last week's weigh-in I was .4 shy of that 10 pounds and I can't tell you how unbelievably frustrating it was.
That was the hardest 11.2 pounds I've ever lost!
I'm not saying that I'm not proud or happy to have that weight off, but in my past attempts at WW it's never taken that long to lose 10 lbs. I used to be able to lose that much weight in just a month's time, maybe even quicker.
I'll admit that I'm not perfect with my portion controls, food choices or tracking. But this time around I have tried harder to be better at all those things and have even adding walking regularly to my routine. That is what has been the most frustrating!
I am aware that this time around I have more stress, health challenges, sleep issues and of course AGE working against me.
I'm not giving up. I am going to keep pushing along.
I've decided to set goals/challenges for myself. I'm just trying to make sure they are realistic and to somehow make them fun. Maybe make a creative, cute board to hang over my desk? Something like that. Something I will see every day to remind me to not give up.
I've seen on Instagram where someone had made themselves a challenge chart to run 100 miles by a certain date. She has a board with 1-100 and she crosses off each mile she runs. I love the idea of doing something like that.
Do you have any creative ways to help you reach a goal? I'd love to get some ideas.
Til next Wed..........
