One block at a time
I could spend more time to make this a clever, well-written post, but instead I'm going to just move along and get it done.
I want your help. I am in the process, let me emphasis process, of changing my eating habits and overall relationship with food. I'm not on a diet to fit into a certain dress or bathing suit.
I know that if I don't do something soon, I will end up a diabetic with heart disease and then one day my children will very likely share the same struggles. That might sound dramatic, but only if you don't know my family.
I've been on the Weight Watchers plan for 7 weeks and did very well at first. Down 17 pounds and feeling good, I forgot that it is a daily, hourly choice for me. I put myself on cruise and didn't to stay alert.
I'm off track. I've gained back almost 2 pounds. The pounds don't matter except that they reflect my actions. I actively gained those pounds. (remember the m&m breakfast?)
I know the holidays are coming and if it isn't a holiday it's something else because that's life. I'm lucky enough to have plenty of food options at all times. I struggle with those options, though.
This is what I want from you. I want to be able to talk about my struggles and successes on here. I want you to comment on what I say occasionally. Tell me how you feel or just tell me... something.
I am stumbling and asking for a hand. It is embarrassing but I don't care. It is important enough for me to humble myself and share this now.
Let me be clear: I don't have a weight-loss goal. I don't even have a scale in my house. I do weigh-in at my weekly WW meetings, but that's it.
If ya'll welcome it, I will share my weekly results with you.
Okay, now who's with me?
