I do Weight Watchers but I don’t count my coffee creamer.
I do Weight Watchers but I don’t track on Saturdays.
I do Weight Watchers but I have one cheat meal a week.
I do Weight Watchers but I don’t track oil I use for cooking.
I do Weight Watchers but I only sporadically track what I eat.
I’ve heard them all.
Hell I’ve done them all.
This doesn’t even have to be about WW. I can’t tell you how many different diet plans I’ve heard the but’s on.
So when I started back with meetings this last February, I decided that I would eliminate the but. No more me thinking I knew better than a bunch of scientists whose sole purpose is to to you know, study these kinds of things.
There would be none of that. I would do what they said.
For two weeks.
Yes, that’s right. I wasn’t all that sure about this whole Smartpoints thing. It reeked of low carb which I despise. I knew I needed to do something though, so I decided to take a leap of faith and do this program for two weeks, even though I didn’t think it would work.
After the two weeks I’d try and find my stuff from the former program and do that.
But I’ll be damned it worked. So I decided to do another 2 weeks of no buts.
Then another, and another.
It only took 14 times and I was at a healthy weight. It really happened before I knew it. I mean I’ve been close before, but was usually so burnt out by the time I got close that I’d fall off the wagon.
I’m not even close to being burnt out.
So yes, I, Kelly, admit that I was wrong. I do not know more than the powers that be at Weight Watchers.
Why two weeks you may wonder? Well see here’s the thing. When you know you are going to Weight Watchers it is almost mandatory to have those last meals, those last treats. They may not show up the day you first way in, but they sure can 7 days later. That’s why I gave myself two weeks.
Two Weeks of no buts to get the butt I wanted.
Do you think you could do that? Two weeks? Just two weeks of no buts? I bet you can.

One thought on “Eliminate the But to Get the Butt”
I definitely need to do the 2 weeks. I am always tracking a few days and then do my own thing a few days. The result is a yoyo of the same five pounds up and down, up and down. Time for a change!
