People who have been on WW for sometime now can attest to this: the reason we have a hashtag #NSV which means non scale victory is because many victories are beyond the scale. If you keep on going and doing what you are supposed to be doing: tracking, drinking water, making sure you are eating the right foods, you will see results. Today the scale was nice to me….I’ve been able to stay in the high 130’s which took forever to get to. I’m blessed that I have been making progress. My goal is about 129 or so, little by little it will happen.
I think WW is the only place where you’ll celebrate losing .2 of a pound.
Because we know that slow and steady wins the race
I have 6 lbs to go to goal but I’m really pushing for the low end of the BMI scale or 129 which ever comes first.
Just keep swimming! LOL
There has to be a specific event in your brain that makes WW work for the long haul. That thing is determination! WW is not something to try then leave or just play around with. I like to say it’s a “weigh” of life! If you want to be thin for the rest of your life…this is it baby!
Its really common sense…tracking…eating the right foods…saying no to the wrong ones…portion control. Exercise…drinking water…all works together. What really puts it all together is connect! We support and inspire one another.
As you stay on the plan…you get very wise about choices. And that’s a good thing. Your days of shoveling in junk and any food that comes down the pike are over.
Your body knows what it needs. And you learn to be attentive to that.
I’ve been with Weight Watchers since January 2016. It was the best decision for me. Not only am I healthier, happier, more confident about how I look…but I just truly enjoy the discipline and control over what I eat. I’ve lost 43 pounds and being a size 8 is mind boggling. I had been size 16 for so long! When I turned 60 I decided: time to get off that chub! I’m shooting for another 20 pounds but I’m sticking with this for life. What’s awesome about this program is it’s portable lol…you take it with you anywhere! It’s just a “weigh of life”.
I'm customizing various things for Weight Watchers.
So I found a new thing at least for me.
Supposedly alkalized water is good for you…less acidic. I know that there’s a balance. I’m not going overboard on something that’s so basic for life. I think drinking it in moderation is a good thing.
I know that many people on WW are in this lifestyle for the long haul. As many say…1 and done. There are those who are back after the 5th time and this blog post is for you folks. If you truly want to be part of the 1 and done crowd the whole key is consistency. Not easy at times but doable. Food becomes less of a master and more of a servant. We decide what to put in our bodies. We decide what will work in meal planning. And we do this day after day. Week after week because no other way will work. Yes we can eat most foods but then we find out which ones are worth it. Health is truly our greatest wealth and we want to keep it that way. Consistency is the key!
