Looking back to prior attempts with Weight Watchers, the first month was always the most difficult for me. It's the whole transition thing. You know, it's not really a diet.........it's a lifestyle. My motivation is the Spring and Summer. I didn't go to the beach at all last year because I just couldn't stand the thought of myself in a bathing suit.
That was rock bottom, my friends. Rock. Bottom.
Time for a change. A good change. Time to be held accountable. Time to sit up and take a good long look at that person in the mirror. Who IS that? I almost don't recognize her anymore.
But I will. Just give me time. And patience. Lots and lots of patience. It didn't take me overnight to look like this, and it's not going to come off overnight either.
I tracked all my points yesterday. It was a good day. Tuesday is weigh-in day and my Weight Watchers "buddy" Karen treated us both to a new Weight Watchers cookbook.
Don't worry....I'll share all my recipes with you! Today I started off with my usual 1/2 cup of oatmeal, only today I added a small scoop of all natural Better n' Peanut Butter.
I read about this in Eating Well magazine and finally found it at Whole Foods.
If you like peanut butter, you'll love this! Two tablespoons of low-fat peanut butter is 5 points plus with Weight Watchers. Two tablespoons of Better n' Peanut Butter is only 2 points. It doesn't sound like a big deal.....but when you are counting points IT IS!! Try it!!
So breakfast today was Oatmeal - 2 points
Better n' Peanut Butter - 2 points
Coffee - 2 points
Now I'm off to ride my bike for 30 minutes or so before I have to leave for work.......ACTIVITY POINTS!!!!! Have a great day!
