Being Real And Honest To Myself Today.
Today I am real and honest.
So I can hold myself accountable.
The thing is - I have always struggled with my weight. As long as I can remember I was the "chubby" one. Not fat or obese, but chubby.
I always thought I was too thick in highschool - looking back on pics now, I can see that I wasn't. But people made me believe so. Which lead to one diet following the other. I tried so many different things, which all worked fine in the beginning, but never lasted long.
I didn't have my "goal weight" when I got pregnant, needless to say I was far from it afterward.
I lost a lot of weight during our time in the US - I walked a lot, my diet was different and I felt really good about myself. But back in Germany, feeling homesick and depressed for a long time, the weight came back on and then some.
I am an emotional eater. I literally eat my feelings. And the regret always sets in way too late. Afterward I feel miderable. But it doesn't stop me from doing the same mistake over and over again.
I have to break that cycle in order to achieve a healthy weight and to feel good about myself again.
So - I have decided to join Weight Watchers, because I know a lot of people who have had tremendous success losing weight on WW. And because I want to do it in a healthy way and I want it to last!
The first meeting I will attend is next Wednesday and then every Wednesday after that - so, I will share my journey on Thursdays.
I will also start being more active, now that spring is here I will use my bike more often, the pup will be taken on her daily walks as usual and I will also go on walks/ runs by myself where I can go a bit faster since our Kyra suffers from arthitis and can't go that fast any more.
I will share my journey here with you all. I know it won't be easy and I know I will struggle for sure. But, I have set my mind to it - I want to lose this damn weight once and for all!
I hope you will all cheer me on and listen to my rants that will for sure come. And if any of you have tried Weight Watchers before - please share some of your experience with me - I would love to hear!
Have you recently set your mind to something important you want to achieve? I'd love to hear about it!
Happy Thursday xxx
