Weigh-In Day, Week 33

on September 7, 2013

One more pound gone this week which brings me down to 228, 20 pounds less than the 248 I was at the start of this blog! Somehow things seem to be moving more steadily now and I wonder if it has to do with the muscle I’ve built up over the past 33 weeks?

A lot of people have asked me lately if I’m still doing Weight Watchers and I’ve been struggling how to answer that one. No, I’m not specifically counting out points for every bite I eat but I am still using everything I learned in the months of rigidly adhering to the plan to help make my choices through the day. It is a fantastic program to get you started in the right direction of learning to eat healthy for what your specific body needs. The problem often comes with letting go of the discipline in following a plan, you start to slip back into old habits and this is the sign that you are not yet ready to go off a plan. If you can go a week without counting your points and tracking every morsel, but still maintain a healthy eating lifestyle, then try for another week. Make sure what you have learned has “stuck” before heading out solo.

Come winter, I may get back into tracking and journaling my food intake. I find my body loves to go into “fat storage” survival mode in cold weather, probably due to the fact that I love to hibernate under a warm blanket and not move a muscle.

I heard the geese this crisp September morning…our crazy busy summer is nearing its end.
