Why is it so easy to get off track when everything is going so well?
I’ll tell ya…I have been without my Weight Watchers e-Tools for about three weeks, if not longer. See, because I am now an employee of Weight Watchers, my account was switched. I was still using my old account but now, it was finally closed. And that wasn’t good.
I have heard so many stories of people who have quit tracking their food intake only to find out tracking is what kept them honest and from gaining weight. I now believe it. Because I haven’t been tracking, I have been shoveling so much food in my mouth it isn’t even funny.
So, starting today, I am back to tracking….with my new Weight Watchers account. See, with my new account, I am basically starting from scratch and have to re-input all of my foods, which is why I haven’t been tracking, which is why I have been eating and eating and eating. And not necessarily good foods.
Yesterday, for example, I think I ate at least six to eight pieces of candy from my co-workers candy dish; my husband and I went out to eat and I had a plain hamburger and sweet potato fries…and I finished every last bite; for lunch yesterday, I had two bowls, albeit small bowls, of Lucky Charms and a grilled cheese sandwich; during the day, I ate two coffee filters filled with popcorn instead of my usual 3/4 of a filter full…see what I mean!!!!
AARRGGHH!!!! Why do we do that?
Luckily, I have been exercising, but seriously, that doesn’t give me the right to eat like I have been eating.
I am getting back on track today before I gain anymore weight. Yes, I have gained, but fortunately for me, it’s been less than two pounds. But that’s what happens. Gain a pound here, gain a pound there and before you know it…BAM…it’s up to 15 pounds.
Well, that’s not going to happen to me. No way. Nada. Don’t think so.
So, if you are one of those who has been off track lately, like me, I challenge you to get back on track with me. Let’s start today. C’mon, you can do it. If I can, anybody can. Just do it. Okay?
I’ll let you know next week how it went! Feel free to let me know how it’s going for you. Either leave a comment or feel free to send me an email…firstname.lastname@example.org…I would love to hear from you!
