It’s Time to Get Back on Weight Watchers

8 Jul

I wrote on June 19th that I had been off the Weight Watchers plan for a week.  That is true.

What’s even more true is that today is July 8th – nearly three weeks later – and I’m just getting back on the plan.  Today.

Which means I was off of Weight Watchers for an entire month.  I have no idea what my weight is at the moment – I haven’t hopped on a scale in weeks.

There were many things that led to this … a relationship that went sour and made me want to eat (yes, I’m an emotional eater!).  Being sick for the past month with a terrible sinus infection (yes, I’m still sick.).  And just a general case of the blah’s that made me have zero desire to monitor points.

I love Weight Watchers, but the thing I struggle with isn’t the exercise or the moderation.  It’s the calculating of the points when you make meals at home.  Running my own business means I’m busy 24/7 – and the last thing I want to do on a long day is break down the carbs, protein, fat and fiber for each and every thing I eat.

So I need to get better about making recipes in my food tracker and storing them.  Since so much of what I eat is the same.

I need to remind myself if I make the time now – it’ll be easier in the weeks to come.

So I’m back on Weight Watchers.  I’ve had six points so far this morning (all peanut butter, bad me!).  Hopeful I can squeeze in a salad between two conference calls this afternoon.

    There will be ups and downs. I too am an emotional eater and in tough times, it’s very easy to go back to those habits and I do. After a few days, I don’t feel so hot and I find then it’s easier to get back to the habits I want to keep. No one is perfect, what matters is that you love yourself and do what makes you feel the best. I don’t have to think about brushing my teeth, I just do. One day, the “best” food choices will also become mindless routine. 🙂

      I’m not sure why – but this break has been hard for me to get back on the wagon. I’m sure being sick had something to do with it. When I’m sad or sick – I like to eat. It’s terrible! It’s comfort food. I know it – I know the behavior. I should’ve just stayed on the plan. 🙂
