Having been on the WW plan before. I have already addresses a common pitfall of all dieters. What to wear on weigh-in day. In the beginning of any weight loss plan, when you are shedding the most pounds, this is hardly a concern. But, there will come a time when the rate of weight loss slows and you hit a plateau. During those periods, even +/- 0.25lb is significant. That’s when perfectly reasonable women turn deparate and the WW lobby starts to resemble a strip club. Typically modest women divest themselves of thir shoes, jackets, sweaters, belts, watches and earrings(!?) all in effort to coax the needle to the left.
I have solved that problem ahead of time. I will wear the same uniform of leggings, t-shirt, socks, wedding ring, watch and pearl earrings to EVERY SINGLE WEIGH-IN.
Are you in an organized weight loss program? How do you dress for weigh-ins?
Actually, today wasn’t as bad as yesterday. I wasn’t starving today like I was yesterday but, I have been conscious of a strange emptiness in the pit of my stomach. I don’t know if its a physical sensation or merely a psychological response to perceived deprivation.
Am I losing it? Or has this happened to you?
Talk to me Goddesses. I need encouragement.
I woke up with a wave of anxiety today. My heart is racing and I have this feeling of panic. I know why but, I don’t know “why”. Let me explain.
As an arm chair psychologist, I know my anxiety stems from the fact that I am on a new eating plan. What I don’t understand is why a new eating plan should be freaking me out. Any thoughts Goddesses? Has this ever happened to you? How did you handle it?
How do you reward yourself to stay motivated? I am looking for ideas. Please send me your suggestions.
Today, my husband and I took the first step in our journey of lifelong good health. We joined Weight Watchers*! Now, I have joined WW many times over the years. Twice, I have stuck with it long enough to see some real benefits. Each time I did it on my own and each time I struggled against the temptation my loving hubby would bring into the house.
What is the definition of madness? Doing the same thing over and over and expecting the different results. I am putting an end to the madness. Instead of struggling on my own, the whole family is going to change its habits right along with me. Lord knows we could all stand to lose weight. And, we need to show a healthier example for our son. Its going to be hard for my husband to keep buying sodas, ice cream and candy when we are on the plan. At the very least, he will learn how unhealthy those choices are. If he still chooses to eat them, then he is at least indulging with his eyes wide open. And I will have an open and shut case in divorce court. [click to continue…]
