In the last few months by weight has been very slowly creeping upwards half a pound here, a pound or two over Christmas, an “eat whether you want because you’re running” pound there and sooner or later it was bound to catch up with me.
I stood on the scales recently and weighed in at 149 lbs which is 12lbs over the goal weight I finished at in Weightwatchers. I promised myself that I wouldn’t gain back the weight I had lost and that if I ever felt myself slipping I would catch myself and reign it back in. Some of my trousers are getting too tight, I feel sluggish and not myself and so enough is enough.
I started counting points again almost two weeks ago now and so far it’s going well. The number of times I’ve had to whip out the points calculator and look up points on the web has made me realise just how little thought I’ve been giving to my food intake lately. For instance I can’t tell you the last time I looked up the points on a restaurant menu before going – something I used to do without even thinking about it back in my WW days.
I’m excited to shift these pounds and get back to feeling like myself again. I’m excited to be back to eating healthier and to trying to get in my 10,000 steps everyday….I’m such Boomer won’t complain about that either!
