After Sundays post last week and a lot of thinking on my part I decided enough was enough, even if i keep making mistakes and slipping up I still need to attempt to move forward. So Monday evening after work I made the decision to return to weightwatchers meetings.
I was very nervous when I went in as it had been a while, I didn't know anything about the meeting or who went but felt that I needed to do this. I had brought my monthly pass in advance so I could skip over that awkwardness and filled in my new card and then queued up to meet my new leader.
Now the meeting was fairly quiet so only a few people in front of me which was nice, and my leader introduced herself to me and congratulated me on making the first step. I then discussed with her how I had previously done weightwatchers online and we decided to go with my starting weight on there. Yes i had only lost 3lb but its still 3lbs that were gone she said which was very reassuring.
I then had a quick browse of the shop and picked up the new magazine and was supposed to get a new eating out guide but forgot oops. must remember next week. I then sat down for the talk, about half dozen people had stayed which was nice, wasn't too many but enough to be able to chat. The talk was very light-hearted people were talking about Easter and their plans and how they were going to overcome the temptation and involved lots of joking around which helped me feel more at ease.
I then stayed to go through the talk with my leader, now she wanted me to do simple start and I looked at it but for me its not something I felt that really suits my lifestyle or how me and my family eat. I am lactose intolerant which also reduces some of choices available to me and I’m not most creative of people either when comes to food. But the one thing simple start does teach you is about what foods are healthy to eat and which are treats and should be in moderation. This includes some foods you probably wouldn't even think about having like mayonnaise.
But even still I chose to stick to #propoints counting and started the week off well but will admit went a bit off wagon over last few days but will pull myself back together. Mondays weigh in this week has been cancelled as its in a religious building so cannot be available for us to use so gives me longer to get focused and lose more weight as I want to be able to go back to my meeting with a loss.
I am also off to my friends for a few days from Monday until Wednesday so I know that will help a lot as she is good at keeping me on track and making good healthy meals, then its back to work Thursday and Friday before weekend again. Its my brothers birthday start of may so next weekend will be all about finding a present which is going to be fun.
I have also been giving some serious thought into having PT sessions again at the gym at least until can get myself going regularly again without need of encouragement or motivation. Once I am there I enjoy working out and the feeling afterwards its just getting myself there. Though right now I have hurt my knee so wont be doing much of anything.
What's your plans for Easter and how are you going to tackle the temptation?
