Weight Watchers: Not Giving Up

Thursday, March 15, 2018

I won't lie to you: losing weight consistently has been challenging. Life has been challenging. This week I realized that there will never be an easy pass given to me. I have to make this work for me. No matter what happened in the past, I decided not to give up on my goals. 

Most of the success I obtained came because I decided not to give up. This week, I decided to succeed. I can't rely on a program to help me succeed. I certainly can't rely on exercise either. The only person that can help me succeed is myself. 

I had some crazy thoughts on what I should do to make the scale go down consistently. I thought about doing the starvation diet. Then I remembered how much it hurts and how that would not help me on the long term. I thought about juicing. Then I remember how much I like chewing. I'd chew the contents of a juice bottle quicker than I'd agree to drink it for days on end. I decided a long time ago that the issue I need to fix is rooted in self-control. I want to be great at it. I want to be able to walk away from temptation because of it. I know it is achievable. I just have to stay the course. 

The past few weeks (months? more like year...) have been the demonstration that I can maintain a certain weight. The next few weeks, months, year will be the demonstration that I can be successful at reaching my healthy weight.  I just have to finish what I started.

* I thought about going to meetings instead of doing WW online. I simply do not have the time. I decided to stick with online and I've been relying on a few Podcasts to keep my motivation going. One of them is the Cut the Fat Podcast and the other one is Whys Advice with Fat Dagg. I've been listening to the first one for 7 years or so and I recently discovered the second one. There are others, but these guys have been consistent in making new podcasts available. 

Goal for the week: Track 7 days with the ww app. Exercise at least 4 times.
Start Weight: 175 lbs
{Goal Weight:} 136 lbs
{{Current Weight}}: 166.8 lbs
