Ahhhhh. First week of weight watchers down. A lifetime to go, but it is nice to have the first week down. And to have stuck with my changes and choices.
Lots of changes. Traveling this weekend. Not as much exercise as normal. It could have spelled disaster. But it didn’t. I did okay. I lost 2 pounds. Not too shabby. It could have been worse. Much, much worse.
I love how weight watchers has you break it into smaller goals, 5%, then 10%, so on and so forth. But they are still kind of daunting. I have been gaining and losing the same 6 pounds for the last year. I have lost these two more times than I care to count. I am a little nervous they are not gone, just messing with me again.
How do you battle the fear? How do you move past the pounds you have gained and lost over and over again?
This week’s weight watchers meeting was about how to deal with Thanksgiving. It is a toughie. One of the first things they mentioned was setting your goal–continuing to lose, stay steady at current weight or even plan for a gain. My goal? To keep losing.
Are there people in your life who are changing their food choices? Won’t you encourage them, help them? Add lots of veggies and fruit, without dressings and creams, to the menu. Don’t take it personal when they choose to pass on some of the treats, know they are just doing what they need to so for themselves.
What are your goals, what is your plan?
