Letting The Chips Fall Where They May

Hello, All!  I’m still in Florida and will be heading back to New Jersey on Tuesday.  If I’m lucky I’ll be able to post with pictures on Wednesday.  Looking forward to doing that again!

I realized that yesterday was an anniversary of sorts and a pretty important one I guess.  Two years ago, March 9 was Ash Wednesday and I had decided that for Lent I would give up eating chips.  I didn’t eat them all the time, but I tended to eat them on Saturday after weighing in at Weight Watchers.  Then sometimes, Saturday would turn into Sunday and I would still be eating chips.   I felt that it was having a negative effect on my weight maintenance efforts. 

As the days went on and I faced the thought of no chips at first it was a little upsetting, but the longer I was away from them, the less I thought about them.  Then I started to notice a difference on the scale.  I lost a few pounds, then a few more, then I didn’t seem to have so much difficulty keeping it off as I had before.  

Now, two years later, I don’t have much trouble keep my weight under control.  I have learned on this trip to Florida that I was being a little too flexible before I left.  With four of us working on Weight Watchers together I’ve become more aware of what I was and was not doing at home. 

Weight loss and maintenance is an ongoing thing.  In the Weight Watchers vernacular, you need to work at it for a Lifetime.  Will I ever eat chips again?  I know I’m tempted all the time, especially with all of the new unique chips that are coming on the market.  I mean…sriracha potato chips, how can I resist them?  I guess, I resist them just the way I’ve resisted all the chips for the last to years.

No, Thank You.

Happy Sunday!!

  2. From people who have tried them and like Sriracha those chips are not worth it. 🙂

  3. You can do it, Fran! I love that you’re able to stay on track and focused!

  4. I love this! What’s funny is that I was craving tortilla chips today before I read this. 🙂
