Dear Weight Watchers…
Dear Weight Watchers,
Once again you have proven to me how the program DOES work. After going back to your meeting last week and committing myself to making it work, I jumped back in with both feet, making smart decisions whether I was eating at home or out, testing my willpower in some instances (i.e., no chips and salsa at Chili’s!), and making new recipes that I have enjoyed all week long. I never once felt deprived or hungry or like I was missing out on something, even when choosing not to have the evil delicious chips and salsa at Chili’s. To me, the points weren’t worth it. I stuck to my points, walked a total of 24 miles since last Thursday, drank a lot of water, and took my vitamins.
Needless to say, I had high hopes when I went to the meeting this morning and got on the scale. Since last night I was thinking “oh no, what if despite all my hard work this week I didn’t lose anything?” You never know with my body anymore. But, I was proven very wrong and I was very happy when I stepped on the scale and saw a 4 pound loss. GO ME!!!!
I walked out of there feeling very empowered, happy to have some sort of control over my body again after it has had a mind of it’s own the last several months. I have a long road ahead of me and a lot of hard work to get it back to where I want to be, my “happy weight”. But seeing that loss this morning tells me I CAN DO IT. My hard work will not go unnoticed.
It’s only a matter of time that I will be more comfortable in my clothes and feel better in my skin. Thank you for once again showing me that I can eat healthy and enjoy it and that I don’t need all that bad stuff that does nothing for me except stick to my hips.
