These are some of the times where it would be a good idea to not be so public about my journey with weight loss. Or maybe it is just what I need, even though I don’t like to tell you yet again that I didn’t do so well. Maybe that accountability is just what I need to keep me from giving up completely.
No weight loss this week. But, I have stopped tracking, I have stopped counting points. So what can I expect? Weight loss doesn’t happen because I say I am doing it, it happens because I actually do it.
Want to know another thing that I have been doing, which I know not to but have been? I have been nearly starving myself some days throughout the day so I can really eat later in the day for a specific meal. Now, doing this once in a blue moon is ok. In fact, that’s one thing I love about weight watchers is that you can save up points for a planned meal. But, it is not healthy everyday to keep yourself from the balanced meal that my body needs. And then sometimes, I can get so hungry that I way overeat.
So this coming week, I plan on…
- tracking again, writing down what I eat.
- counting my points again
- eating more regularly.
Which brings me to an added benefit to my program. By filling up on the healthy foods like fruits and vegetables, I am getting way more servings a day of those healthy items than I would if I was not trying to lose weight. I would not normally reach for a carrot unless I was trying to stretch my points. So a healthier balance and more fruits and veggies, which I hope will account for a healthier me is a big plus to the weight loss plan.
Ok so I really need to hear my motto for myself today…
Bad week? Good week? Remember, it’s a fresh week!
