Day One…

I’m back to “Day One” I am over my Lifetime Goal by 4.2 pounds, and I would like to lose 11.4 pounds in total. It may seem like a mistake or strange to make the first words of this post, be about “the numbers” because WW is about more than weight loss. This journey is about choices, beliefs, planning, and empowerment – however, it is also about maintaining and losing weight. The numbers don’t define me, but they do help to focus me. Does that make sense?

Here are somethings I’m thinking about after my WW workshop:

  • Bob has lost 102 pounds over the past 72 weeks. He shared how he keeps it fresh by finding and sharing recipes. Another important part of his success story involved our community. We help each other. There is so much good in our community and like Bob, I appreciate how valuable it is to my life. Listening to him this morning was a real gift to me – it was what I needed to hear.
  • Joan had an important discovery that after she gave up Milano cookies she has been consistently losing weight. She is down over 7 pounds. She examined a pattern and made a meaningful change that is getting her closer to her goal.
  • Bonnie talked about the importance of setting small goals – and she is exactly right about that. I know that setting small goals help me.

My goal this week is to cut out added sugar.

MonWrite one memory in detail that involves eating sugar.
TueWrite a list of alternatives to a sugar filled dessert?
WedTake a picture of something “sweet” and write about it.
ThuRead an article about sugar and respond.
FriReflect on your week without sugar: What did you learn?
Explore your reasons for cutting sugar & reflect

This is all subjective but I think eating sweets makes me hungrier. One thing for certain is that eating sweets uses up a lot of my SmartPoints balances and that is not helpful. I also think it’s important for me to select a goal that is finite this week – one that I either accomplish or don’t accomplish. I want to give this goal my full measure of devotion. I need a good goal – think this is the right goal fro right now.
