Had my weekly weigh-in last night, and I measured in at .8 up from the week before. Is standard procedure for my body… it stays in this holding pattern, then drops steeply, then more holding pattern. I think I need to start taking measurements, maybe that would give me a little more in the way of seeing progress.
In terms of rethinking what goes into the mouth. Why do I think I need so much sweet? Why do I feel I deserve it, and if I don’t have it I am deprived? I hate how I chase the sweet, to the extent of ingesting artificial sweeteners to placate myself and still lose weight. Cannot be very good for me.
One of the things that I feel is a serious drawback to the Weight Watchers program, is a person can follow it to a “T”, lose weight, and still be eating utter crap. Of course, am personally a big perpetrator of crap-intake when it comes to “my soda-drink-treat;” AKA Diet Dr. Pepper. So I am trying to change my brain to need less refined sugar, AND artificial sweeteners.
I won’t pretend that it goes so very swimmingly, but I think a little progress has been made. Here is a little bit of info….
One teaspoon of sugar is one WW point.
One Tablespoon of honey is one WW point.
Stevia, a natural sweetener is free point wise… but probably ought not be used for more than sweetening a few beverages a day (tea, coffee, Pero etc…) .
So I am trying to push myself more into the “I don’t need it” mindset. So far it’s going a little better… but I have got to find a reasonable and crap-free chocolate option STAT… is coming up on TTOTM (that time of the month)!
