So as some of you know I've started Weight Watchers. So far the results are great. I've lost just over 3 kg's this week already and the week isn't even up yet. Some of you may fret at such a LARGE amount being lost over a small period of time, but the reality is I have 50 kilos to lose. So the initial weight drops will probably be higher.
Well I did it, I told you just how overweight I am. I'm not about to go and reveal my weight, but I'm sure you have a good idea. Years of not caring, ruts & letting busyness rule.
Yeah the food thing is hard. It hurts my head trying to configure my points each day. Do I eat this? No, too many points, I'll have to eat this instead. Bla bla bla... it goes on all day. Grocery shopping takes heaps longer cause I'm working out points and meals and all that (and did I mention husby and I started a NEW BUDGET on the same week which means not only finding better foods to eat, I have a smaller amount of money to spend!!).
But you know what. I can handle that. Being healthy isn't supposed to be easy. Or else everyone would do it, right?
The thing that has me troubled is the support factor. I come into contact with alot of people through my family, church & work. Most people are really supportive for any sort of positive change, regardless of your method. But there have been the few that have been quite the opposite.
"who cares about calories???" - ahh, me.
"oh just eat it, it doesn't matter" - if I want to eat later on today it does matter
"just snack on celery all day" - have you not tasted celery lately, it's kind of boring and stringy
"why would you do that??" - have you not noticed I am obese? I kinda noticed.
"do this diet, it's better" - if it was better I would be doing, but I'm not.. get the message?
"if this doesn't work, let me know" - thanks for having faith in me.
Anyway, maybe I'm being too sensitive but it's making me grumpy!! I just needed to vent and need positive reinforcement and I know I can rely on all you ladies out there to help me with that.
And if you've done Weight Watchers yourself I would love any of your meal/snack ideas and recipe's!!! I am struggling sooo much in that department!
I hope to do one of my very own photo's like this one day :)
