Up and Up and Down…

Today was my weight watchers meeting.  In the last 3 weeks I had gained a pound two weeks in a row and today I had lost a pound.  Kind of like going two steps back and one step forward.  I feel good that I have lost 17 pounds since I started in April.

During the meeting one woman of a certain age has been coming to weight watchers for the last 8 years and has lost 56 pounds!  That’s about a half a pound a week, but at least she is losing and not gaining, so I have to give her credit.

This week’s “lesson” is about habits:  good, bad, and ugly.  First step is to think of a habit you would like to change.  Then identify the cue for that habit.  What are you getting out of this habit?  Then insert a new routine.

“I will rehab my habit of munching while watching tv in the evening.  When I watch tv in the evening, I will try chewing gum while watching my favorite show because it provides me with the entertainment without the added points (calories).

Do you have a habit that is interfering with your weight loss or weight maintenance?  How are you going to set up your three steps to success?
