A Few Steps Forward … A Few Steps Back

27 Feb

Today marks day 10 back on the plan.  And aside from day 1, this is the hardest day I’ve faced.  I’m stressed about a few things and missing the thing that used to help me — food.

I’ve not fallen off the plan – I still have one point remaining at the end of the day.  But I want to eat more.  And saying “no” is really hard.  Not making a sandwich.  Not eating some Skittles (which is strange for me regardless, because I don’t have a sweet tooth).

I know I’ll get through today and tomorrow will be a new day.  But this has been one of those days where I just want to say “the hell with this” and quit Weight Watchers.

I’m thankful I have this blog and that people are reading it.  It really does help keep me accountable.  Although it’s 100% fine when we have stumbles along our journey, I know I’d hate coming here and blogging about how terribly I had just blown my points for the day.  So if nothing else – that helped keep me in line today.

A quick run down of big meals:

Breakfast: Apple with 2 tbsps of reduced fat peanut butter (5 points)

Lunch: Smart Ones Macaroni and Cheese (7 points)

Dinner: Potato and Cheddar Soup (10 points)

    Good for you for staying on track!

    Have you ever checked out http://www.skinnytaste.com ? There are a ton of easy recipes with points+ values and sometimes I find they go a lot further in making you feel satisfied than WW food. You should check it out if you have a moment, I cook from the site almost every day and haven’t had a bad low point recipe yet!

    I like your blog and look forward to following you on your journey!
