Waking up at 4:30 am may not sound that appealing, but I have to say, I do love working out before I start my workday. It’s a little bit of time that is just for me. Plus, I really do enjoy the other people who go to my 5;15 am spin classes. This morning’s class was a fantastic time and in by the end, I felt very strong.
It’s a little startling how different I feel these days. I have this sense of wellbeing and balance that I didn’t have before. I read a post on #Connect from another member who posted a picture and wrote that she was fed up and was now ready. Today was her “Day 1” As a member who began counting the days over a year ago (420 and counting) I can appreciate where she is coming from. For those of us who either have or had a lot of weight to lose, the first day of the journey to better health can be overwhelming.
Nothing about weight loss is easy. There is no one right way to do this. So for me, I am definitely a #WW girl through and through. I’m happy to be on this team. The thing that makes #WW work is that it is designed to be customized to us as individuals. Everything has to start with who we are and our specific needs. More and more research is showing that food is processed differently from person to person, so knowing how to best use our SmartPoints is an important personal choice that leads to permanent change.
#WW members have conversations about making activity enjoyable and part of our daily lives is a powerful conversation. Acknowledging how to manage emotions without resorting to overeating is equally powerful. Understanding the value of a growth mindset and establishing good habits are also discussed. Powerful, life-changing stuff!
So tomorrow is Halloween… what is your action plan for the candy situation?
