It seems that I have finally gotten control over my eating with Weight Watchers. I thought about this on my way to work as I was eating my breakfast. Which by the way consisted of a toasted bagel thin with 1 tbs peanut butter and 3 pieces of turkey bacon. I found a turkey bacon made by Oscar Mayer that only has 2 points for 3 pieces. This was a very filling breakfast and I was satisfied and full. I ate an apple about 8:30 and a cup of watermelon just now for my morning snack. I try and eat something about every two hours and this seems to keep my energy level up and keeps me from pigging out.
Lord knows that I have tried every diet known to man kind. I have done diet pills and soup diets. I guess I was always looking for the over night cure and there is not one. I came to realize that no one can do this for me. Weight Watchers is not just a diet for me anymore it is my way of life. I will have to do this the rest of my life, because I have an eating problem. I know this and accept it, but I will no longer let that eating problem control me or my life. So I write in my journal and I weight every day and I measure everything that goes into my mouth. It is no longer a hassle, but a habit. Lets hope this weeks weigh in reflects it this week.
Now for the exercise and the fact that I am not getting enough of it. I went home yesterday and walked up and down my driveway 3 times. I know that does not sound like a lot, but my driveway is 1150 feet long so I walked 6900 feet. It took me about 20 minutes and then I cooked supper and got on the wii for 30 min. Hopefully I can keep this up and get this to also become a habit for me. We will have to see with my work hours being so crazy if I can keep it up. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
Here is yesterday's food journal and I will be posting a new receipe on my blog this weekend so look for it. Have a great day and I am going to go and read some posts..
