I fell off the wagon a while ago. Was counting calories for a while, didn't stick with it.
So background - I fluctuate on weight a lot. I've been 200lbs - I've been 126 lbs. all the way back to 200 and the lowest I got was 135. Wedding helped me get motivated. I did that by counting calories and going to the gym. Well over the last 2 1/2 years I managed to gain 25lbs. So I decided to count those calories again. Seemed like I would lose 5 and gain 5. Back and forth.
Two months ago I started weight watchers. I lost a pound, gained 2, lost 2, gained 1. I fell off for about 3 weeks. so I got super serious this past week. Ok it's only been a week but I'm happy. I made it through my first week!! I don't weigh in until Saturday so really my week isn't completely over. But I've done so well I'm so proud of myself. I cheated and weighed today. I've lost 3 lbs. I know it's water weight and I stopped sodas so that's got to be a lot of it. If I can just hang on thru tomorrow and weigh in on Saturday with a loss, I think it will be the motivation that I need to keep going another week.
One week at a time. I'm so proud because I worked so hard to stay focused. It's so hard!! And I dont have a supportive family. My husband and son wanted chick fil a tonight. I let them go and I had grilled chicken and a salad. Because I know that although CFA can be healthy, I would eat ALL of the fries and I would have to get the breaded chicken bc it's my fav!!
I also found great ways to snack on fruits and veggies. I'm a chip eater and I love salsa. I love to just snack on chips when I'm bored. So I didn't buy any chips this week. I bought celery. I chopped them up into bite size pieces and had a bowl. Someone told me to try it with salsa. Eeeh I dont know about that but the celery thing was a huge change for me.
One week at a time. One day at a time. One bite at a time. Yay!
