Married Life, Weight Watchers, Friends and Stuff

It’s been a beautiful week in New Orleans, and I’m hope that this weather will continue through August. This is typically the worst hottest month of the year, but the first day was splendid. Window washers cleaned my windows last week too, so we’re enjoying the view from the sofa with the blinds open a lot right now. Michael and I have been adjusting to married life, and the last few weeks have been pretty great. We feel at home in our new church, and we’re finding our way into new living patterns – spending time together and giving each other space. I haven’t found a good groove with Weight Watchers yet, but I’m not giving up. My weight has not changed much at all since I got married. In some ways that feels like a win, but it’s disappointing too because I know I can do better. My weight just hasn’t been the focus, so I’m not going to beat myself up for something that I’m not making a priority. My clothing size is still changing though. A few months ago I was wearing 24’s in everything, and right now I’m much more comfortable wearing 20’s in most things. […]

According to Weight Watchers Fruit is Free Unless You Blend It

I weighed in at Weight Watchers on Thursday after being gone for our honeymoon, celebrating the 4th of July and my birthday, and I’m happy to say that my weight stayed the same. After several days of lobster and other delicious food, coconut drinks and Prosecco I know that it’s time to get back on track. We celebrated my birthday with a few friends on Friday night as well, and I ate two child size slices of pizza. The celebrations haven’t stopped since we got married. Actually, they started before that when our close friends were married, and we’ve been celebrating ever since (about 7 weeks.) I’m definitely not complaining, but all of this fun is exhausting! I’m thankful to be back home and getting settled into married life. Now that all of the major life events are over (for now) it’s time to get back into a healthy groove. Michael and I both know how important it is to make healthy choices, and we’re striving to do it together. We’re at the point in which we don’t have anything interesting unhealthy to snack on, so we look to things like fruit and high-protein snacks when we want something. I’m […]

Weight Watchers: “What’s Your Why?”

Michael and I joined Weight Watchers together over the weekend, and I went to my first meeting today. The meetings aren’t new to me, but I had never been to that one before. I liked it. When I opened my “Success Story” weigh-in book I noticed a question that I never noticed before. It said, “What’s your why?” What’s motivating me to try this again? What are my reasons? What are some specific details that led me to walking into a meeting? My simple answer has always been that I want to lose weight, but the answer seems more specific now. I’m so close to my lowest recorded weight as an adult (284 pounds,) and I want to reach it. I actually want to exceed that, and for the first time in a while it feels like I can do it. I’ve lost about 100 pounds since September, which was hard. I realize that it’s only going get harder as the journey continues, so I’m trying to form some good habits now by tracking. Tracking my food intake is easier to do when I eat at home and plan what I’m going to eat when I’m not at home, so […]

Hello Again, Weight Watchers…

I’ve been pretty quiet about the fact that I rejoined Weight Watchers, but I have to say that I’m enjoying the new Smart Points system. I never liked PointsPlus. I mean, I couldn’t stand it! I didn’t care for Oprah’s commercials earlier this year either, but after some serious consideration I decided to rejoin. I still […]
