She lost weight every week. Every single week. Just by watching what she ate, journalling, and making good food choices.
And when she was physically able to come back to WW, she told us how this experience made her realize that it's not about the working out - it's about the food.
You see, every week, she lost at least a pound, or a little more. So that got me to thinking.
I really, REALLY have to stop indulging so much on the weekends. I just have to, end of story. And I know if I do that, I can hit One Derland as early as next week. But I'm not going to put a time on it like I did last time. I'll get there, I know I will, I just have to really focus on eating well.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying working out and being active isn't important. Of course it's important. Everyone should try to work out at least 5 days a week. Everyone can find an hour a day, or even 30 minutes a day to do something.
But it's about the food. Lisa said that no amount of exercise can wipe out a horrible diet. So it doesn't matter if you workout 2 hours a day if you're inhaling crappy food. You just can't work something like that off.
Think about that for a minute. If we all just made better food choices and watched what we ate, we'd all probably lose weight without even meaning to. It's about the food.
So this weekend, I'm going to watch what I eat and NOT throw caution to the wind. This weekend, it's going to be all about the food. As in, I'll eat healthy, and not scarf down chips. Or any other trigger foods.
Chew on this: What's one thing you can do differently this weekend that you normally wouldn't do because it is the weekend? (I'm talking foodwise, but if you have something else you could do differently, leave me a comment, because I'm like Curious George over here.) Let me know!
And with that said, I'm going to wrap this one up now. Thanks so much for reading. And let's all make good choices.
