Losing weight is hard. Being fat is harder.
That’s what I tell myself whenever I want to throw in the towel, when I get sick of watching what I eat, when I want to make a ton of comfort food (and eat it too).
I’ve had a lot of activity on my blog and in the interwebs this week since hitting my goal weight. I have had such a huge amount of support and love thrown my way that I am seriously overwhelmed. In a good way of course!
My Facebook Page has been seriously active and I’ve gotten hundreds of messages about what I’ve done. I think I’ve finally answered them all, and thanked all the people that commented on the posts going around the ‘net this weekend. It was important to me to say thank you or at least love their comment if they took the time to say “wtg girl!”.
A bunch of you also said you were going to try Weight Watchers, and this post is for you. I imagine some of the things I am going to talk about will help with other weight loss/lifestyle plans too. So here are some of the most asked questions I received and some sage advice from someone who’s been there, left, been there again and finally bought the damn T-Shirt.
Do you follow the Weight Watcher plan everyday, or do you do a cheat day?
I once had a girl in my WW meeting ask me how I was losing weight. Ummm I do Weight Watchers…lol Seriously though, this whole do I totally follow the program question came up over and over and over.
Yes, I follow the program. Completely. Does that mean I have always stayed within my points and done everything perfectly? Hell no.
As human beings we are designed to not be perfect. Did I have days that I went over my 30 points? Yes. Did I track every single one of those points? Yes. Did I get right back on the wagon the next day? Yes.
Don’t sweat messing up. It happens. You just need to start sweating when you not only fall off the wagon, but are drug behind if for miles until it crashes into a fiery heap.
