Drum roll please…..
As of Monday, my official day to weigh-in for Weight Watchers, I am down four pounds from my starting weight!
I cannot begin to express the enjoy in seeing the scale move down for the first time in a long time.
As of writing this post, I have not heard from the weight management program about joining the gym, the personal trainer, or the nutritionist but I’m pleased with my own progress through the week.
One thing I think that’s helping a lot staying on track with WW this time, is being able to eat fruits and veggies without counting them. I do enjoy eating a piece of fruit when I’m craving something sweet. In many of the other diets I’ve gone on, and ultimately failed with, I’ve been restricted to a handful of approved foods and many times fruits are cut out of the plan all together.
WW is giving me freedom in picking things that I like and can eat. With some of the food allergies I have those other plans that rely heavily on tree nuts, mushrooms, and avocados, hampered the amount of recipes I could work from.
Personally, I’m not convinced that diets need to start out with these “resetting” phases because they typically don’t work for me, yet when I jumped in headlong I lost more weight.
Of course, I have upped the amount of exercise this week as well.
