Just under two years ago I made one the hardest admissions I would ever make. I WAS FAT and I needed help not to be. I’ve documented my first steps joining Weight Watchers already and why what one person said spurred me to do it.
I also documented the last few months of my journey, and how one year ago I GOT GOLD!
So now it’s been a year.
First thing, yes I have put on weight.
I got into the bad habit of thinking that because I’m at goal I’ll stay at goal, but unless I out in the effort this is really not true.
I also lost motivation when I moved to London. I started going out more, I moved to a meeting where I didn’t like the leader, and most importantly I kept making excuses (why I couldn’t run, why I couldn’t shop for
good healthy food, why I should eat that bar of chocolate.)
But truth be told, even after eating my deep fried pizza dough for lunch (I walked up a hill afterwards so got those activity points) I craved healthy food, or food that was good for me.
At the end of the day Weight Watchers taught me habits. I can eat what I want, but I’ve got to be prepared to gain weight. If I do want that deep fried pizza dough for lunch then I’ll have a curry made with lots of vege, curry powder and water (Hostel living- it tastes better then it sounds.)
It sounds stupid but I can’t wait to get back to New Zealand and get back on plan. I love planning my weekly meals and shopping plan. I love cooking new meals, trying out different recipes to see if I can make them Weight Watchers friendly.
So just to warn you now, when I get back to New Zealand there maybe there maybe my terrible attempt at recipe posts
Oh and here’s my curry since you asked so nicely
