I’ve been thinking a lot about how I am doing with my desire to lose weight on the new WW Plan.
I chose the Green Plan to follow, which in short means I am counting my points and really working at preparing filling, yet low point meals.
I was so dishearted at Christmas when I was weighing way too much. I saw the pictures and I looked like the Pillsbury Dough Girl! I was so unhappy.
My New Year’s Resolution was to cut it out and just do it.
I went back to class and began, again, the long process of losing weight.
One thing I can say about being 61 is that this time on WW I am facing all this with reality. I know I cannot have “cheat” days. I know I cannot drink alcohol and expect to lose. And I know, deep in my heart, that I will be following WW for the rest of my life. I am not naturally thin, and never will be. Even when I get to my goal weight, my body will always want to take Pasta and make big hips! This is me and this is my life.
Strangely, I feel okay with all of this. I am not on the brink of cheating or stopping the diet, and I am content.
This is totally a new feeling. I was always great at sabotaging myself. But, no more! I will do this. I know I can!
