Today I talk about a really bad week I had that was fueled by an extreme lack of sleep. Throw on top of that I had a deadline that I was trying to meet. Consequently I didn't have time to cook (and hit the drive-thru time and time again). This lead to me gaining back some of my weight.
Then it occurred to me that the deadline I was trying to meet was self-imposed. If I didn't get my project done, the worst case scenario is I would have to finish it later. It was just that I've wanted this to be done for about two years, and I'm “this close” but in the end it isn't life or death.
I'm Now A Weight Watcher
On Monday July 23rd I attended my first Weight Watchers meeting. I always thought the points system sounded like a hassle, but they have some fun gadgets (and you know I love gadgets) and some online tools to make tracking your food super easy. In the end no matter if its tracking calories or points, you need to track.
The meeting was cool as there was a woman there who celebrated losing 50 lbs in 21 weeks. I can see where these meetings are a nice “tune up” to help you keep focused on your goal. I will keep you posted.
