First of all, I want to thank everyone for your kind words and support regarding my last several posts. I have not been happy with myself, my food choices and certainly not my result from Saturday’s Weight Watchers weigh in . It was very distressing and frustrating and has my mind going in circles to figure out what went wrong. I think I need to stop wasting my energy trying to find out what happened and just move on. I mentioned that if I gain anymore I will have to pay. My friend Zo suggested that since I identified that as the line in the sand that I will not cross, then I know what to do. She’s right and the more I think about it, that’s all I need to remember.
In fact a few years ago, prior to starting BCDC, I was over goal and I was paying each week. I realized all the money I was wasting. I tallied up what I had paid to that point during the time I was over goal. I wrote that total on the front of my WW membership card. Each week, I wrote what I paid and added it to the total. When I actually saw what it was costing me, I got myself on track and before long, I was free again.
That’s what I’m going to keep in mind this week-that total, which I don’t remember at the moment but it was in the area of $500.00! I’m not spending one more penny on this. I know what has to be done and I WILL do it!
I started the day with a good breakfast in order to feel on track.
A very tasty egg sandwich with sriracha sauce. I love making these and Ralph enjoys when I do. Counts for 5 Points and is very filling. I resisted putting cheese on it as I think I’ve decided that cheese is one of my problems. Breaks my heart but I’m going to have to be very careful of cheese. I can’t give it up altogether, but I need to Beware.
I toyed with the idea of posting what all of my Points are for my various meals, but decided against it. I think it might be a little boring for all of you who are not WW members. I’ll continue as I have…sharing the Points when I think something is an especially good Points value. Tracking will be crucial though, so I’ll be writing EVERYTHING!
But I do prefer to be positive rather than negative. I think I’ve been throwing out too many negative comments lately. I don’t want that to continue. So from now on…
