Back On Weight Watchers!


So I jumped back on the wagon…

I am back on Weight Watchers*.

How did I get back here?

I’m glad you asked.

Since being back at work my weight loss has come to a complete halt. My weight loss on the scale crashes and burned. Even though I work out super hard everyday that dial just isn’t moving!

I blamed it on everything:

Not getting enough sleep

 (I still am not getting enough but what newish mommy does?),

I have a hectic schedule

Blah blah

I am clearly putting on wayyyy more muscle than expected!

I even believed this for a while.

Truth is I wanted to lose weight, by going to the gym everyday like I love to do. I really didn’t want to work all that hard on my eating habits. I wanted to order pizza for the household on those days where I had such a stressful day at work, cooking was too much of a task to bare.

Or my recent sugar habit that I have gotten into since I have been back at work. Since when do I crave jelly beans? This is so not me.

No more!

White rice is my comfort food, always has been. Its what I was raised on. I eat ate lots of it. As someone of Caribbean decent we eat tons of it everyday, its normal.

It is also possibly one of the worse things you can eat on weight watchers.

I joined weight watchers to get control of my eating again. I have been on the plan before, so I am not new to this. The plan is super strict yet it is flexible. It is not easy by any means, I’ll explain more about that tomorrow but each day that goes by I’m learning.

I simply came to my point of “no more” some people call it an “aha moment” I’m simply saying no more to crazy mindless eating.  Convenience is no longer an excuse to eat whatever I want.

When I lost 50 pounds from 2009 – 2010 I was determined, focused and willing to fight for my health. I’m ready to take that challenge on again.

I hope to see a loss on the scale this week, it doesn’t have to be significant, just a step in the right direction.

*Note: I did not start WW because of any celebrity endorsements, or sponsorships I have been on the plan before and it has worked for me very well.

Let’s see how this goes!

  1. So you mean to tell me that I can't just workout and lose weight? Dag that was my next plan. I have horrible eating habits and I love food. Watching what I eat is hard to do but I may try the weight watchers plan next year when it's time to lose all this weight.

  4. Girl! we are having parallel lives ! I had my a-ha moment on Thursday after the scale and I had a meeting. It's on and popping. I survived yesterday and today I did well, but had a couple of fries…..but it was all in my calorie budget! I've done weight watchers before, and it was great! we can support each other!
