Day one of the Blog
ok here goes! Yesterday was my first Weight Watchers meeting in a month…. for those of you who don’t know WW.. you are supposed to go weekly to weigh in, get motivated and share your struggles with food .. its kinda like group therapy but with cheerleaders.
I have had a really tough time staying on track with WW. My Mother gave me a membership for my birthday (awesome gift BTW) but I just can’t seem to stick with it. I have managed to gain 7 pounds since I started in October. I am frustrated and disappointed with myself and the stress of failing at this and wasting such an awesome gift is working against me… I am stress eating instead of focusing on staying on plan and exercising.I hate how uncomfortable I feel in my skin and how hard activities like tying my shoes and walking up stairs has become. I am not used to this and I need to get a handle on things. (get this lady some cheese to go with her WHINE)
Anyways the only reason I went to the meeting was because I was running late for my first Barre class and the thought of being late mortified me more than my need to workout… I know it is backward thinking but I need to be prepared for a new place and class.
(hoping this is me in a few weeks being like “ya I do Barre”)
I went to the WW meeting which BTW I got the times mixed up and actually showed up for the last min of the meeting… so now I am without fitness and motivation and it is only 10:15am on a saturday morning… So I weigh in and wow nothing has happened in the last 4 weeks. The highlight was the fact that there was no weight gain …. YAY???
I left feeling blah vowing that I would make sure to show up next Saturday for the meeting before Barre class. We will see how that goes. So far I have managed to eat almost all the treats I bought at WW (they were suppose to last all week) but now I have consumed 6 bags of popped BBQ chips for a total of 12pts and those tasty chocolate pretzel bars didn’t even have a chance.
How is it only day 2 in my week and I have already eaten enough food for tomorrow too? I did manage to get out for a walk with a girlfriend last night and today I hit my 10,000 steps. Wish me luck for next Saturday’s meeting!!
