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.
