I'm not journaling as well as I should. (Studies show that when you don't write down what you eat, you eat 8-16 pts, roughly 400-800 calories, more than you think you do.).
I'm not eating as many servings of fruits and vegetables as I should.
I'm not drinking as much water as I should.
I'm allowing myself to stress eat, saying "it'll be okay, it's just a little bit", and I know that's not a great way to handle it.
I am, however, exercising on a regular basis, so that's a plus.
I'd lost over 40 pounds in my first year on Weight Watchers. In the last year, sporadically going to meetings, I've gained half of that back. It's not the plans fault--it's me not following the plan. I know that when I eat right and exercise, I lose weight.
Thank God for the exercise, who knows where I'd be without that.
I'm so proud of John. He's taking his diet plan seriously and it's working well for him. I need to model his commitment to it.
So I'm going back to the basics. Diet and exercise work for me, if I'm honest about it. I want to be healthy. I want to get to the point where it's a lifestyle, not a diet.
Time to get started.
