Yep, you read that correctly - Weight Watchers. I started yesterday. I understand that by no means am I over weight but when you look in the mirror and you just aren't happy with yourself, things need to change.
I cut my hair thinking that would make me happy. I love my new hair, but I still didn't see myself happy in the mirror.
I bought make up thinking that would help my face look peppier, that didn't work but yes the makeup helped. I just wasn't seeing what I wanted to see in the mirror.
On Sunday, I was trying on my shorts from last summer and while the fit, they were way more snug then they used to be and then it hit me, I need to lose some weight and that is the one thing that will make me happy when I look in the mirror.
That night, I went online and signed up.
I have done Weight Watchers before, I started after Henry was born and really liked it and it helped a lot. It's great for my OCD because you can track everything and I love looking at the log and figuring out what I can and can't eat. After a few weeks you just train yourself and you stop eating crap. It also makes you accountable, which I like.
The best part about weight watchers, is that I know I can still eat. I just have to be careful of what I am eating. Did I eat at thin mint after dinner because I had one point to spare, you betcha! Will I save my points to have a glass of wine or two, you know it, but at least I know when and how much I can have.
It's going to be hard and fun all at the same time. So, wish me luck and hopefully I will have a successful update in a few weeks!
