Through the holidays and football Sundays and Superbowl Sunday, I’ve really let myself do whatever I want. I ate and ate and ate, and drank and drank and drank, and you know what? I feel like crap.
As a result, I’ve decided to take control and to really invest in myself and my body. I also invested in Weight Watchers, the program that I hope will help me regain control. I’ve tried WW before only to drop out of it because I wasn’t mentally ready for the journey. I feel that now is as good a time as any to work on both my mental health and physical health. This journey is going to be long, and at times painful, but anything that’s worth having is worth sacrificing for. I’m looking to lose around 40 lbs, and I’m going to check in about once a week to let you know if the scale is moving, how my eating and exercise have been going, and overall just how I feel.
In case any of you are interested in Weight Watchers, it’s a little under 20 bucks a month. It’s based on a points system that factors in carbs, protein, fiber, and fat. No restricting. No strict calorie counting. It’s about putting good food into your body, and being rewarded for it, but also letting yourself have those times where you eat what you want (which is good for people like me who love to go out). They have all sorts of cheat sheets for the best drinks to have, best pizza to have, best burger to have, etc, when you do have one of those days where you want to eat whatever.
Wish me luck, and hopefully next Monday I’ll have seen a loss on the scale.
