So I did it. I rejoined Weight Watchers Online on Saturday. Day 1. Ahhhh… it brings back so many memories of moderation.
I plan to post on the first monday of each month, as it relates to my quest for reduced poundage. Just one post, per month, to either celebrate victory, or lament failure. With each post I will report on the following things:
1. My current weight (as of Saturday, it is 175.)
2. My current fitness plan (as of Saturday, it is called "walking on a treadmill, briskly, for 30 to 40 minutes every day… at least that is the goal.)
3. My mental space (as of Saturday, I would probably kill a small animal for a Butterfinger.)
And of course, I will also be covering things such as:
a. whining and complaining about feeling hungry, even though I’m not actually feeling hungry because I’m eating "filling" foods.
b. whining and complaining because I wasn’t born naturally thin, and am somehow convinced that thin people have no issues whatsover.
c. whining and complaining that I want to enjoy being healthy a hell of a lot more than I actually am.
That gives you an idea of what you’re in for on the first Monday of each month.
Enticing. I know!
So I’m starting small. My first goal (as of Saturday) was to make it until noon without freaking out. Then 6 p.m. Then to bed. And guess what? I did it. And on Sunday, too.
The next goal is to get into the habit of doing the healthy living thing. Third is to hit a 5% weight loss, which will put me at around 166.3, or so.
Then I will create new goals from there. And, I’ll try to share any awesome healthy foods I find along the way. (I also encourage you guys to post your healthy secrets!)
Dan, who loves me no matter what size I am as long as I will still agree to go clothes-less from time to time and hug him in a special way, told me just to take it slow and steady. No crazy goals. Just slow and steady. And he also said, in preparation to be on the receiving end of my lower fat cooking, "Bring on the rabbit food!"
So for Month 1, this is Cathy Zielske reporting from Rabbit Food Central. Check back in one month for more riveting tales from the scale.
