It feels great to be a loser again!!
Earlier this year I reached/tied my all time high on the scale. Not acceptable. I joined Weight Watchers and was ready for the weight to fall off. It did for the first few weeks, then I stalled -- for three months. Three long months of gaining and losing the same three pounds. This could lead a lesser person to believing they were a failure. Good thing I'm not a lesser person.
This three months was clearly a period of trial and error (today, is too). I tried a lot of things that didn't work. And now I'm trying more things that do. . . and having success more often, as a result. Still having plenty of struggles. Still falling off the wagon from time to time and sometimes often. It's a battle, but I get back on that wagon as quickly as possible.
For months, I've been telling folks I've been doing a better bad. That statement usually gets a reaction of some sort, but it's true. I'm I've been doing a better bad. When I find myself eating mindlessly, my food choices have been healthier. Instead of potato chips, I'm having pumpkin seeds. Instead of homemade brownies, I'm having a pre-portioned
Weight Watchers dessert. Sometimes more than one, but that's still better than the brownie. Last night, was the best bad I've done. I ate from a veggie tray!!
Since I've been struggling ALL WEEK with over eating, I didn't hardly expect good results at my weigh in today. Surprise. Surprise. I am down 2.2 pounds this week!!!!!
I look forward to seeing the results when I have regular exercise combined with prudent food choices. Being a loser feels GREAT!!!
