About a month ago I decided to make a life changing decision to get healthy. There are so many different ways to do it these days and so many of these diets that "claim" to work. But I chose one that I have personally seen work for others. I chose to join Weight Watchers. The couple I nanny for both started it after their new baby boy was born and I have definitely seen results with both of them. They both have very different body types; Tyson is a body builder, and Andrea is tall and slim and it has been working for both of them. My aunt also lost 30 pounds on it. So I thought, hey why not me too?
I have been at a weight that's uncomfortable probably since Jr. high. I've never had a huge issue with it because I have confidence and I've been told that I'm pretty my whole life. But recently I've been noticing it a lot more. I don't want to look like a stick, and I don't even want to be skinny. I want to be small and fit. This is something I know I can do.
The best thing I like about Weight Watchers is that it's not actually a diet. You really can eat whatever you want. This is something I love because I am a carb whore. I love my potatoes and my pasta. The program just teaches you to eat everything within reason. It allows you to eat all of the fruits and vegetable you want. They have no point value. This so far has taught me to choose healthier snacks when I'm hungry instead of choosing chips. So far I have lost ten pounds on the 2 and 1/2 weeks I was at it viciously. But since my surgery I haven't kept up with it until today. I'm back at it though, and I have no intention of giving it up. I'm purchasing a dress next week that's four sizes smaller than what i'm at now to hang on the back of my bedroom door. As soon as that dress fits I plan on doing it again with another dress that's even smaller. It's a great motivater.
