Sometimes Maintaining Can Be A Win
I weighed in last night, and my loss- 0.0 lbs. My gain- 0.0 lbs. This week- maintaining was a victory. I felt and knew at last night's meeting that I CAN do this- not just for right now, but for the long term- maintain good eating habits. Every other time I've done Weight Watchers- something throws me off track- a stressful few weeks, a breakup, the event that I was losing for being over and done with. Not this time.
This week's meeting topic was about utilizing your support system and not letting people downplay or take advantage of the fact that your are trying to live a healthier lifestyle. If you're strong about your health and believe in it- you can make it through hard times and get back on track. You have got to believe in yourself- and when you don't- have someone around who does. A few cheerleaders in your corner never hurt anyone.
I'm not trying to downplay the tragedy in this post- I just know that if it was hard for me, it's been harder for other people. We all struggle with losses and hardships in our life- it's important to reach out to your support system and ask for help.
Week 15: -0.0 lbs
