Day Sixty…

This is what a day on Weight Watchers looks like, so far I have used 22sp. Basically, this is my day in numbers:

  • Breakfast – Siggi’s Peach Yogurt 3sp & mixed berries
  • Lunch – 8sp Sabra Classic Hummus 3sp; Utz Halloween Pretzels 1sp; vegetable sticks, Sargento Ultra Thin Baby Swiss cheese (1 slice) 1sp; spinach 0sp; turkey breast 3oz 1sp; Apple; Laughing Cow Cheese 1sp; Rumaros Low-In_Carb Wrap 1sp
  • Dinner –  1/2 cup white rice 3sp; Frozen Peas & Carrots 1sp; chicken breast 7oz 4sp
  • Snack – 1/3 cup Wonderful Pistachios roasted and salted 3sp

When you look at this list, really, it’s a decent amount of food. I still have 5sp to use to get into the blue dot range (27sp – 37sp). I will probably have something else in a little while. I have some options and I think that’s important.


Our brains are programmed to have a variety of foods in our diets.   If you’d like to read about it, here is a great piece by  Should You Eat The Same Thing Every Day? Why Food Variety Is Important.

Do you ever feel like it has to be you or everyone else? Lately, I’ve been thinking about this a lot, that coupled with my ongoing struggle to find balance. Sometimes life makes you find balance, you have a health scare, or something happens that’s totally out of your control and your situation makes you sit up and listen. As I write this post I find myself wishing it were easier to prioritize the many responsibilities of my life.  I’m sure many of you can relate – it’s not always easy.

Day sixty is making me introspective, not in the brooding sort of way, but more of the thoughtful reflective way. I can feel myself changing, and a lot of the planning and work for successful weight loss on Weight Watchers has gone “underground”. It’s more automatic than it was sixty days ago.

Did you know it takes anywhere up to 85 – 125 days to grow a pumpkin? That’s a huge transformation from seed to fruit. I wonder where I will be in 85 days or 125 for that matter…

Maybe I should work to be even more mindful of my efforts. Maybe I need to pay close attention to all the things I’m doing that are helping me to be successful.  Perhaps, taking my actions for granted is the same thing as taking my success for granted.  If I want this time around to be different than I really have to think about everything…

My final words to you are about vulnerability.  Writing these daily posts opens me up to everyone – why do it?  I believe there is power in vulnerability:

My wish for you is that you let others in and that you let yourself be seen.  More tomorrow…
