So tonight, I slunk into my first weight watchers meeting. Well that’s not quite true. I did it 5 years ago, before I got pregnant with E. And lost a stone, but it was a lot of effort.
Right now, I don’t have the time or inclination to weigh all sorts of stuff out. So getting there and finding that the “materials” (ie: this is how you do it, this is what you can eat and what the points are) were minimal was a relief. It was unfortunate that it was literally, in the church itself, rather than the room that’s usually hired out. It felt very “fat fighters”.
But the leader was welcoming, and apparently, for the first five weeks, I have to weigh in with her, so she can keep a track on me and also, because her queue is longer. Because us newbies have more questions in the first few weeks!
I stayed for the chat, but didn’t think too much to it. I’ll give it another go next week, and see if it’s better. Other than that, today is the first day I’ve been within my points and I’m feeling quite proud of myself for that. In fact, I even had a point left over and that’s including a chocolate mousse tonight! Whoop Whoop!
The one thing that has come out of tonight, is the leader saying that if there’s something that I really want to eat, then I should eat it, and work the rest of my food around it. So the thing I want to still have, is chippy chips and gravy. So I should. But at the same time, I think it’s a bit nuts that I’m so hung up on eating my food. There must be something psychological in this. So I’m thinking about it. There’s got to be some middle ground surely?
If you’re interested in how I’ve done that, I’ve put a screen shot below of my day. Not sure if it’s interesting to anyone else really, but it is to me.
See you at the next weigh in…
If you’ve got to the bottom of this, well done! What food is there that you don’t want to ever stop eating? That you are hung up on?
