I joined weight watchers yesterday. So far, there are some nifty e-tools to play around with. So far it's not getting on my nerves. But this is only day one. He he he.
But progress is progress: Dieting without self-loathing. Now there's a concept.
Conclusions: I drink too much wine, I cook with too much fat and indulge myself in illegals such as pastries at Church about once a week...far too often. Yeah, that about sums up my fifty pounds of overweight.
Things I'm already doing right: eating fruits and veggies. Eating whole grain sugar free cereals, and limiting the carb portions each day. I read labels. That also puts me ahead of the game. I rarely eat out and I cook from scratch.
Now I just need to learn to cook with less FAT.
And I HAVE been walking. I'm back up to 2.5 miles nowadays.
Since I have family history for everything: heart disease, diabetes AND cancer, perhaps I can get a doc to write me a nice little note to get my HSA to pay for this.
Wouldn't that be nice?
So, wish me willpower, self control and a dying to self indulgence. It's that part of me that wants to indulge myself that gets me every time.
