Day One…

Today is the first post. The first step to trying again. I have let the summer come and go without any successful weight loss. My dad used to say, “Kick yourself once and only once.” I think that’s good advice for me right now. I cannot change the past, but I can influence my future.

My son asked to go to Cheesecake Factory today. Of course, he did, that’s because today is the day  I’ve committed to starting over… That’s life, so I mixed my teaspoon of apple cider vinegar into my can of seltzer, drank it down, and off we went. I don’t know if it was the water, vinegar, or my resolve to make a change, but my lettuce tacos were very satisfying.  I’m feeling optimistic.

I am a Weight Watcher that means I track my food through SmartPoints (sp) not calories. My nephew joked that using Smartpoints is like measuring a room in inches. Good thing I’m not very mechanical. Anyway, the way it works is I get a total of 30sp per day. So far, I have used 22sp. I am not hungry right now, so I’m not sure how to use the rest.

So, tomorrow, my goal is to go to the gym. Thank you for reading, this helps.

P.S. My son ordered their 30th Anniversary Cheesecake. My son is 14 years old and likely to be the only person alive that could eat this and not gain weight…
