Day One Hundred Seventy Five…

I weighed in, I lost 2.4 pounds this week. I had great results this month:

February 2018

Everywhere I go lately people are longing for spring and I am no exception. I went to T.J. Maxx with my sister yesterday and there were all kinds of floral prints and dresses on display. I am happy to report that I can now fit into a size 8 – that feels amazing.

Our topic for this week is about identifying internal or external hunger. This is an important thing to be thinking about. If you belong to Weight Watchers, I do encourage you to read the Weekly that we get at our meetings. When you find yourself feeling hungry ask yourself, When was the last time I ate?  If it has been more than four hours you are experiencing internal hunger pains. If you have a slight headache, your stomach is growling, or you’re hungry for anything these are signs of internal hunger. If you smell something like freshly baked cookies and now you’re starving for cookies that’s an example of external hunger. When you want comfort foods like mac and cheese and you’ve eaten a couple of hours ago – external hunger. You might want to check your emotional state, maybe you want to eat to suppress feelings…

External:Internal Hunger

The most important thing that is sticking with me is the idea that I can be strategic with my meal planning. My leader suggested that we use the planner found on the website and I thought that was an excellent idea. Here is the planner if you want to try it too: ww_worksheet_1017  So, the next thing to do is to pick out some recipes to make this week, and think about my shopping list.  Here is the suggested shopping list on the website: shoppinglist_2017_final I think it’s important to keep interested and to try out the ideas shared during my meeting. This is how I can keep learning, so  I’ll keep you posted and let you know how it goes.
