A Return to Weight Watchers

9:52 PM

Way back in the day, 2004/2005, I lost 30 pounds on Weight Watchers.  I was an expert on points, I learned to love vegetables, and would eat Subway often, like every day.  The program worked for me!  And then I stopped the program and life and blah blah blah, I got chunky again.  No one saw that coming right? 

I've gained and lost more weight than Oprah.  I was lucky when pregnant, I only gained 20 pounds and only had 7.5 pounds to go when I came home from the hospital.  Breast feeding was my friend, and when I went back to work, I was 20 pounds lighter than when I got pregnant.

That was more than a year ago.  I started off this year strong.  I was working out, even though exercise is my personal nemesis. I was eating right!  I was on it.  Notice how all of those verbs are past tense?  A lot of things happened, I got stressed and I ate.  And ate. (and ate and ate and ate and ate and ate and..repeat)  

Tomorrow, I start Weight Watchers.  I need the structure.  I need to be accountable.  I need to get rid of this bloat that I picked up because I decided water is bad.  I like water, I'm not sure what that was about.   I need to never use the word bloat again, I hate the word bloat, and hate that I'm using it while talking about me.

Cause this, this must stop.

    1. I like food. I enjoy eating, when I'm happy I like to eat, when I'm sad I like to eat, when I'm bored I like to eat, when I am excited I like to eat. Bottom line is I like to eat. The problem with eating is that too much of it distorts my body. I heard it said it is like adding too much gasoline to your gas tank and having the reserve go into the back seat. If you keep on adding gasoline pretty soon that gasoline will occupy the back seat, and the front seat. And you will literally drown. So, I'm trying to teach myself to do other things when I'm saying at a need to deal with the set when I'm bored I need to do something more exciting, when I'm excited I need to express that excitement. I guess, I value my health at this point more than I do the role that food has played in my life for so many years. I want to eat to be healthy. Sounds like, that's where you are to. So, maybe we can do this journey together. I would love you to join me as we become healthier and even more beautiful. Mama.

  2. PointsPlus is the new name for the Weight Watchers plan, and it's a good name. Weight Watchers built a great business on teaching people to watch their food intake by associating point values to all foods and recipe components. Points Plus is remake of the points formulation that is more nutrition friendly .. Flat Abs Fast FREE DVD
