How many times have I heard myself say "the diet starts on Monday?" You know how super skinny I would be if I actually lived what I said. You know how many Mondays I have eaten my way through.....just justifying it and saying to myself..."Thank God, there is a Monday every week." I can not tell you how many times I have walked up those stairs, telling myself " I can't believe I am here again." Yep....good ole' Weight Watchers. The journey through that door is way too much of a familiar one. Even becoming a lifetime member a number of years ago, here I go again....
I have learnt that losing weight is NOT only about the exercise (what...did someone say exercise), and healthy food choices, BUT also about accountability. For those of you who are lucky enough to NOT be familiar with Weight Watchers (GRRRRR), one is supposed to write down what one eats....yep ACCOUNTABILITY, and that I believe helps one achieve goals. Hence, my above journal page....by doing and posting this page even makes me more accountable....I have announced and journaled my intentions. I am accountable by way of anyone asking how I am doing at WW.....(but please don't ask....just in case). Every week I am now accountable to that damn blinking scale and the little Weight Watchers patrol that stands behind it. If any of you have a goal...no matter how big or how small, write it down, somewhere, anywhere. You are more likely to achieve it that way.
But no matter what the diet is of the week....I can guarantee, that at around 4pm, every afternoon, you will always hear Emily or I yell across the store "what's for SUPPAH?"
So here's to me, you, accountability and reaching for our goals.
