The beauty of being on Weight Watchers is it teaches you how to eat without starving yourself, it doesn’t set any ridiculous expectations like no carbs, no sugar, blah blah blah. WW allows you to figure out what is right for your life and how you want to eat.
I feel like WW has been created as the perfect algorithm that I will never understand because I hate math. If math were a person we would be arch enemies. We would be getting in cat fights nearly ever single day. I would steal her boyfriend and possibly her mom. It wouldn’t be pretty if math were a person.
All I know about WW is that it works and that makes me happy. I recently described WW to a friend as a program that is the opposite of the annoying parent or person that tries to tell you how to live your life and preaches about what you should or shouldn’t do. I feel like it’s natural for humans to push against advice, even if it’s really good advice so WW has figured out a fantastic way of not telling you what to do, rather giving you options and tools and letting you figure it out on your own.
I KNOW “bad” foods are bad for me….I don’t need anyone telling me how much I don’t need that Slurpee or candy bar. In fact, when people tell me what to do, eat, think, etc. I end up feeling like doing the exact thing they are telling me not to do just to spite them. I have a brain. I am a grown ass woman. I know how to make choices for myself that are both good and bad. In the past I have been on diets like this, that tell me to avoid all sugars, all the time. I am able to maintain that kind of rigidity for only so long until I flip out and eat a delicious Reese’s cup and then it spirals out of control and I want it every other day. Instead of telling me to NEVER do something, WW tells me “If you want it…have it….but don’t go crazy and hold yourself accountable. Go for it…enjoy yourself but know that you will be spending your points faster than you would if you didn’t choose that particular food/snack.”
I love that flexibility and the empowerment I feel making my own choices on WW and seeing that I can be successful. As far as I’m concerned WW is manageable and life-sustaining. I can figure out how to manage this program for the rest of my life (at least that’s the goal), rather a life avoiding all complex sugars, white bread products, Los Angeles traffic and men with bad breath. Wait, what.
As far as the meetings go I really want someone to do this in the middle of one:
I would absolutely die. After dying I would get up with my ghost body and hug that person and ask them to be my friend.
Yesterday my Grandma told me that a package arrived for me. I got really excited because I knew it was my blue wig. I informed her of this and she just looked at me like I was crazy. She would have really thought I was legitimacy insane if she walked into my room this morning and saw that I was taking pictures with it on and having a really great time doing it
Yesterday I wrote about a swimsuit that I really want but I have changed my mind. Now I want this one. Here is stupid Lindsey Lohan wearing the exact one I want except I want it in black
The problem is it’s made by American Apparel which has clothing that I swear is 5x smaller than the actual size. I have tried on a size large leotard from them (yup, I just admitted that) and in order for my boobs to fit I need to give myself a manual wedgie or it needs to ride up so high on my hips that I end up looking like this
So I basically have a few options when it comes to fitting into American Apparel clothes.
- Cut my boobs off
- Lose 30 pounds
- Lose 30 pounds AND lose my boobs
- Consult a Wiccan and have her put a spell on my ass to make it smaller
- Some how figure out a way to make my torso shorter
This is not looking good for me. If anyone knows where I can find a swimsuit like that but for “curvier women” please let a sista know.
Here’s what I ate today
- Peach= 0 points
- I attempted to eat a Greek yogurt and I would rather eat dirt so I threw it out
- Fiber bar= 4 points
- Jamba Juice Peach Mango Light = 4 points
- A few bites of Chicken breast and a few bites of mashed potatoes = 6 points
- Half a bag of peanuts= 4 points
- 5 pretzel sticks= 1 point
- 3 egg whites = 0 points
- I started to eat a vanilla cone from Mcdonald’s and then I gave the rest to my Grandma= 3 points
- 2 slices of turkey meat = 1 point
- Rice Crispy Treat (I couldn’t help myself) = 4 points
- Corn on the cob= 2 points
- I have 2 points left. I have no idea what to do with them because I seriously feel like I have been eating all day. Once again, the beauty of WW is if you plan it right you will actually feel like you are eating non-stop, yet you are losing weight because you are eating the right things (except for Rice Crispy treats)
In fact, I found a gif of me from today
Thanks for reading!
