I lost a pound this week, and what did it take to achieve that? Surprise, surprise, it required me to stay within my points limits, workout, track, drink water, follow the Good Health Guidelines, and more. Oh, what's that you say? Oh yes, it's the entire Weight Watchers program.
I think this just goes to show that when you are diligent, you stay on program, and you really monitor yourself, you will absolutely have success.
While doing this though, I did find some problems with my own self on program.
- Boredom. This topic is often brought up at weekly meetings. Because it is so rampant in the program! The same foods, the same routine, the same (or barely different) results. Now, if you are good about program, then the same-ness of this probably really works out for you. But I couldn't even survive one week of strict-on-program-ness without feeling desperate and trapped. And switching things up is TOUGH. Any suggestions with how to conquer this?
- Working out. Ugh. I hate it. I hate working out. There, I said it. I don't have to like it, I don't have to pretend to like it. But, I still have to do it. Even the 20 minute at home workout really puts a damper on my day. I will find any excuse NOT to do it.
- Watching everyone else. They don't have to count points, they don't have to exercise regularly, and they LOVE to eat. This. Is. Tough. I'm not going to give up going out with or hanging out with friends...so how do I get rid of food envy?
Let's not talk about what this past weekend was like then...yikes. But that's ok. I have Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday to be good again. Sure, the loss won't be as big as last week when I stayed on track, but hopefully I can at least stay somewhat in the negatives!
How was your weigh-in this week? I hope you were successful!
