I know it’s been awhile but I’m still at it – trying my hardest to stay in control of my weight – it’s not an easy task, to say the least. I went back to Weight Watcher’s and started their Simple Start Plan – it was great – then life happened. I was only able to do a few meetings and then I got a job … not just a job .. but the job of all jobs! It was the one that would provide John and I with some much needed financial stability – equipped with benefits and a half decent income. What started to suffer was my weight loss journey.
The first few weeks were okay because I could get up and have a good breakfast and then bring lunch with me to work. After supper was a challenge because if I didn’t plan well, John would cook supper. By the time I’d get home, I’d be so hungry I didn’t pay any attention to how it was prepared or what he put in it, all I knew was if I didn’t eat, I’d die.
I actually talked my sister into joining only for me to bail on her after our third week – I begged her to keep going because, not only was it good for her, but it kept me on track – kind of a win/win situation. She’s older than I am and not in the best of health so I desperately wanted her to get on board with me and get into a state of better health – she’s my sister and I don’t want to loose her. Surprisingly enough, she stuck it out – went without me – and now that my hours at work have changed, I can start attending the meetings again. Her and I are going back tomorrow. This past week I really had to reel myself back in and get serious about getting healthy.
For today, I had my two eggs, WW toast and banana for breakfast – I had it a little bit late – 10am – so for an afternoon lunch I just had a plate of Weight Watcher’s homemade oven fries (although, I forgot the olive oil!), and some veggie sticks.
For the latter part of the afternoon, I had my tea and WW snack. It’s “fish Friday” so I’m going too make some scallops and oven potatoes. I feel great – I even got some water into me. I’m looking forward to getting weighed tomorrow because I kind of cheated and jumped on the scale this morning – I was down 2lbs since the last time I got weighed at WW so I’m kind of excited. Plus, it’s Easter weekend and it’s one of the hardest times of the year for me when it comes to eating healthy – I LOVE chocolate! OMG – I just can’t stop at one little eggie or bunny ears … it’s the whole thing for me! So going to a meeting the day before Easter is also a win situation for me.
It’s going to feel great to get back into the meetings, for sure – plus I can buy some of their snacks – I love having a cup of tea in the evening, but I also like having something sweet with it so they do the trick.
