There is one advantage to being overweight. You get more points. I have 40 to spend.
The downside is I can see a lot of those points being liquid calories.
My weigh in at the meeting was a couple up from my home scale. I am just going to use the meeting scale as my guide; 118 pounds to lose is where I am at.
I really liked the leader. I see her being someone I can connect with. I have to be honest and say I have not always been able to relate to the leaders that say they don’t drink alcohol because they would rather eat the calories. I am the opposite. I look forward to my wine at the end of the day. But I love food too. These two combinations may have something to do with why I am in this predicament, right? Anyway when the leader brought up wine points, yes I knew we spoke the same language.
The meeting theme this week was about choices. I may try to fool myself and say I am not thinking about what I choose to do when I am making bad choices. But I am not fooling anyone, least of all me. I am just ignoring it. I am pressing that “mommy mute button” to ignore my rational self.
I hope to take in this topic to make better choices this week and start to build a foundation for the new me.
My first day committing to tracking went fine, except for how I filled in my day with snacks:
This was 19 points. Yes, I need to do better. And with faith and a bit of will I can.
