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).”
