Weight Watchers seems to be working – slowly but surely. My goal this month was just to lose 8-10 pounds. If I can do that consistently for 12 months then I will be able to lose around 100 pounds and reach my goal weight of 265 by the end of the year.
The hardest part is keeping up with all the food I eat. A banana here and apple there a container of pudding every now and then followed by a piece of string cheese. Every single item counts, every delicious calorie, every teaspoon of olive oil – it all adds up.
The best thing about Weight Watchers is that I haven’t been all that great at staying within my point limits. On occasion I go over or there are days when I blow it altogether, but I think my diet is more balanced now and I eat a more fruit and vegetables than I ever have. I also love that I don’t have to deny myself food at a party or an event. Instead, I plan for that birthday bash by using my bonus points on those days and instead of having three pieces of cake I just have 1 and a half!
I’d like to lose 3 more pounds by January 31… but if I don’t I still feel pretty successful and this is new for me since my whole life I’ve measured my weightloss success by dropping huge amounts of weight in an unrealistic amount of time. If you’ve tried every diet on the planet, I encourage you to try this one. It might change your life.
