I am now four weeks into this journey.
I’ve faced Thanksgiving and survived. I have been to a few food-oriented social events and did not cave … too badly. I’m exercising portion control and am eating much healthier than I was a month ago. More veggies, less chocolate. Last week I talked about the changes I’ve been noticing already. Looser pants, for example, which is just wonderful.
I’m well on my way to breaking my bad food habits, but I learned last week — a week when I was very stressed by work — that it’s very easy for me to slip back to my old ways. I guess it will take longer than just a few weeks to break the bad habits of many years.
Remember those new scales I bought last week? I am just loving them! Really. They are just so cool that I can’t help wanting to weigh things. With Weight Watchers, we’re encouraged to weigh ourselves only weekly, but I am simply fascinated by how much my weight can change from day to day or even hour to hour. Seriously people, what is the deal? I can walk by the scales and hop on, then do the same an hour later. In that intervening 60 minutes, nothing will have changed — I won’t have eaten or had any water, changed clothes, or gone to the bathroom — but my weight could differ by one, two, or even three pounds. I just cannott figure that out. Also? It’s fun to weigh myself before I get dressed and then again after, just so I can see how much my various articles of clothing weigh. I know, I need to get a life.
How is everyone else doing this week?
