We’re starting a new feature, along with MonConfessionals & anyone else who wants to link up, called “Finding Yourself Fridays”. It can be about inspiration, fashion, exercise – anything that makes you find yourself.
It’s time to get healthier. Besides becoming more active, it also means making changes in how I eat. I drink too much caffeine, skip meals and don’t always make the best choices. I want to be a good role model to my daughter, and that involves being the best me I can be. So this week I went back to Weight Watchers, which I had last been on before I got pregnant again with my third child (I had lost 54 pounds between kid #2 and kid #3). I don’t consider Weight Watchers a diet (which is a word I hate anyway), but a way to live — better and smarter. I like that I can eat what I want, but I can make better choices in what I consume; ie. foods that will keep me fuller longer.
So I’m sounding a call to action — who’s with me?
Whether you decide to do Weight Watchers, or another organized program or on your own, let’s do it together. I will be posting at least twice a month for the next three months on my progress. I’ve got a learning curve too — the plan has changed since I last did it in 2009, it’s now Points Plus – which I admit I’m finding much better. I’m going to meeting and also using E-tools, so I can keep track of my daily food intake on my iPhone, iPad, and laptop (and it all syncs automatically).
Thank you to Weight Watchers for providing me access to a complimentary 3 month membership. As always, all opinions are my own.
