Weight loss this week: –1 Total weight loss: 42
Hurrah a loss this week! I was very very pleased as I tried really hard to stick eating just my points. No snacking unless it was fruit or Weight Watchers pointed snacks and it worked! LOL I know it works I’ve lost 40+ lbs on Weight Watchers so I know it works. The other day I had an epiphany regarding my recent struggles. Are you ready for it? I’m happy. It’s that simple. I am not at my healthy BMI yet and I really truly want to lose another 20 lbs– that’s 10 more lbs than my official goal weight. So you would think WHOA! 20 lbs to lose and she’s happy? Well, yes I am. I’m wearing a size 12 jeans (granted they’re stretchy jeans but they’re still SIZE 12!) It’s difficult for me to lose weight when I feel good and people are telling me I look good. So I’ve lost my motivation. I’m not going to give up but it’s just making it 10 times harder! This week I increased my activity level– can’t say I exercised because that would be a lie but I have walked more and that has to count for something.
I’m also reassess my snacking. As I’ve said here hundreds of times I am a nibbler. A snacker. A midnight muncher… OK so that last one isn’t really true I don’t munch at midnight! In an attempt to work with how I snack I have started making big pots of 0 propoint veggie soup. I add a large bag of spinach and watercress at the very end to boost up the vitamin levels and I can eat with abandon. The way I see it, if I fill up on the soup then I can have a bag of Weight Watchers crisps or a Weight Watchers cereal bar depending if I want sweet or savoury. We shall see if I can stick with it. I was given some of these in my hamper a few weeks ago. OMGaaaah they’er delicious! They really are packed w/ flavour so a little bit goes a long way. Also because they’re in individual size bags you can eat the whole thing and not worry about portion size. I’m trying to stick to one of these a day!
