My Weight Watchers leader says that controlling your weight is all about making better choices. For example, "Should I eat that entire triple chocolate layer cake myself, or should I just have an apple?"

Okay. I get it. Making the better choice is going to eventually lead to a better lifestyle. I'm not too far gone to realize that when I make a healthier food choice, I feel better. My stomach doesn't bloat over the top of my pants. I'm not as jittery.....and I can definitely go longer in between meals.

I still start out my day with a 1/2 cup of oatmeal (not the instant kind), with a small scoop of Better n' Peanut Butter. Boring, but I love it. It's quick, it's easy and above's delicious. It's all for a total of 3 Points Plus and it holds me for most of the morning. I usually plan out my entire day for food in the morning, so my day is already set in stone. I don't deviate.


My weigh in yesterday showed that I dropped 1.5 pounds last week. It's not Biggest Loser style weight loss, but it's a weight loss I can live with. Slow and steady. If I can maintain that loss each week, I'll be a happy camper. I only lost a total of 4.5 pounds for the month of January, but I'm really okay with it. I'm not looking too far ahead.  I find that it's sort of like climbing a mountain..... if you look up to try and see what's ahead of you at the top, you may fall off a cliff while you are climbing. So I'm keeping my head down. Watching each step. Talking my time and making choices that I can live with.

Have a great day!
