I actively returned to Weight Watchers just over a week ago (I’d been a paying, but non-attending, member for several weeks; I wouldn’t let myself fully quit), and in my first weigh-in, I lost six pounds! I was absolutely stunned.  I only followed the PointsPlus plan perfectly for four of the seven days. Two of the seven days were VERY bad and one was fairly bad.

I will happily take that six-pound weight loss and I can’t wait to see more. The problem? I seem to self-sabotage. As soon as I do something great, I instantly seem to do something to ruin it. For example, I’ll order pizza, completely stop tracking, etc. I do not understand it. Today was one of those days, but I am not letting them continue. Tomorrow, I will follow the program to the T. I’ve already planned my breakfast and lunch, and they leave plenty of points for dinner.

I also have to add in exercise. The minute I start exercising, I start to feel thinner and more powerful and I LOVE that feeling. The even better part is that I am less likely to overeat when I feel that way because I don’t want to ruin it. So knowing all of this, WHY can’t I get over the mental obstacle of thinking exercise is a chore and I hate it?

I should probably go to a counselor to help eliminate all of these mental roadblocks, but I tried once and had absolutely nothing to say. I think blogging will help me sort through my craziness and get back on the right path–I really hope so, anyway!

With Christmas rapidly approaching, I could decide to give everything up for a week and start over again next week. But that would defy the very name and purpose of my blog. I am not starting over when it’s easy. I am starting this minute.


About Kristen K

My life has always been pretty darn fantastic--except for one thing: my weight. Not too long ago, I tipped the scale at 283 pounds. I'd gain some, lose some and gain some right back, and I was so frustrated. When I saw a notice for a Biggest Loser-style contest in my local paper, I applied on the spot and I felt like I won the lottery when I found out I was one of the five contestants chosen. We worked out four times a week with trainers and followed a clean eating diet, and my life completely transformed. I've lost more than 60 pounds and I'm feeling confidence for the first time in my life. I'm 29 years old with a great husband, a rewarding job, two adorable dogs and fantastic friends. Weight loss continues to be a struggle now that the contest has ended, but this time I know that I can do it and I'm fully committed. This blog has seved as an accountability tool as I journey from a happy, but fat, person to a happy and confident person. And for the first time in my life, I'm no longer putting it off until tomorrow. This time, I'm starting this minute.
