...so I had my weigh in this morning. I stayed exactly the same. I didn't gain and I didn't lose. While it would have been fun to reach my 30 pound milestone this week, I am basically happy with my results. We spent 4 days at Disneyland and I didn't gain. I didn't use it as an excuse to eat everything in sight. So I'm satisfied.
This morning in my Weight Watchers meeting the topic was "Sneak Eating." That led to the topic of the "diet police", you know, the people in your life who say things like, "Are you supposed to eat that?" That seems to come up a lot in our meeting and people seem to be really irritated or put off by it. As I sat there and listened to the comments and complaints that other members voiced, I realized that I don't feel the same way about it as many others do.
When I first joined Weight Watchers I didn't tell anyone for a long time. I had tried and failed so many times and I was embarrassed to admit what I was doing lest I fail again. But somewhere along the way, I began to open up to my friends and family about my plan. As I have included the people in my life in my Weight Watchers journey I have found a wealth of support. Sure, sometimes they ask questions...but they are just questions because they are trying to understand my plan...they are not judgements or accusations. I am grateful to my friends and family for the support thay have offered me along the way and I'm glad when they ask questions like, "Can you eat that?" I often find that explaining the plan to my curious friends or family members cements it more firmly in my own mind.
So...I hope my friends and family members stay interested in my lifestyle change. I hope they keep asking questions. Most of all, I hope they keep cheering me on in my efforts to change my lifestyle...
