When I first started Weight Watchers I jumped in with both feet and was determined to be a weight loss success. I absolutely could not stand those people who would start their diets on every Monday, have a bad day and then go crazy, complain and complain about their weight while they were enjoying a Big Mac, try the latest fad diet, or continuously make excuses about why they lost weight. So when I began Weight Watchers I knew I would be better. I wouldn't lose interest until I got to my goal weight. I wouldn't let dieting consume me. I wouldn't fail!!
Then here I am, almost two years later and still not at my goal weight. Yes, I am thirty some pounds lighter and am proud of what I have accomplished, but I am angry with myself for losing momentum and becoming one of the people I couldn't stand. As I read through my last Weight Watcher posts I hear myself continuously making the excuses, setting goals I never reach, and basically repeating the same mistakes over and over! I have become a hypocrite!
Now the question I'm asking myself is what the heck I'm going to do about it?
Honestly, I have to admit that I don't know!
Last week was an awful week starting off on the wrong foot with birthday cake, cookies, Arby's lunch, and then continued throughout the week with candy, soft pretzels, cupcakes, cherry cobbler, pizza, and wine. Where was my willpower?
I will give myself some credit though for exercising three nights. I walked about 4 miles all together over the week. Obviously it wasn't enough to counteract all the bad choices I made with my food though.
WEEK 11 (take 2) / +3 / -3 / - 36 (since January 2007)
I know what you all will say. It's a new week. The past is over and now it's time to focus on the here, now, and what's to come. For now, that is going to have to be my answer. I have to let go to the poor choices I made, learn from them, and not make them again (funny cause that is what I always preach to my own kids and students too!).
So here I go...
Encouragement and kicks in the butt would be much appreciated!! Keep me accountable, people!!
