I haven’t done one of these in a while. I’ve written some posts about finding my motivation again, and since the stress/bad news keeps piling on, calorie counting stopped being a priority. I barely would log on MyFitnessPal, and just didn’t have that drive anymore. I can’t tell you the last time I ran or went to the gym to lift weights. Big step backwards.
I decided that I needed to really get back in control of things, and maybe some in-person motivation might help. After seeing a commercial that Weight Watchers is offering a free month right now, I thought that maybe I should go back to it. I gave it a chance a while back, and I couldn’t really find my stride with it for some reason. I’d always just go straight back to MyFitnessPal.
However, I feel like I can handle this. It’s worked for so many people before….maybe it could work for me? Now, I know that I’ve said that I can lose the weight simply eating less and moving more. No plan needed…you don’t have to pay anyone a dime to do this! However, after doing this for almost two years, I’m in a funk. I know calorie counting would work, but I’m sort of bored with it. I need something new. I’m giving this a couple of months, and if I don’t see a change, I’ll go right back to the tried and true calorie counting.
So, the weigh-in. It was ugly, and I knew it would be. Heck, my jeans have been super tight for the past few weeks, and I have no fat jeans to fall back on since I donated them all (with the exception of my size 26 before jeans).
I’m up a good bit. However, I’m still halfway to my goal. I just have 65 lbs. to go until I’m in the healthy weight range with Weight Watchers….60 more is my personal goal, but I’ve never seen myself at that weight, so I could have more to lose after that. I’m feeling good…it’s quite a change from calories, and the points values have changed since I last did this. However, I feel like I can handle this. I can do this.
First goal…5%. And hey, maybe this time I’ll FINALLY get that 10% key chain. Let’s do this!
