Come On Up To The House

Menu 1

It has been a little over a year since I began losing weight. I have always struggled and find it hard to stick to anything, until recently. After college, I joined weight watchers and had a lot of success. The plan worked as long as I didn’t eat anything extra. An apple even counted as extra. Obviously, this did not work out well for me. I felt starving all of the time but I made my goal. I was excited I had finally made it. Years have gone by now, without me paying much attention and with a lot of life changes.  I got married, built a house, had and quit two jobs, had two kids and 15 year later, I found myself in a similar pickle as before. I tried to eat better, walked, and complained a lot, which wasn’t working. I needed something more, that I could actually stick to. Since I knew Weight Watchers had worked once (and with some motivation from my friend/sister-in-law) I finally took the leap and started it up again. This time with a brand new plan, SmartPoints, I finally could eat what I really wanted (within reason) and stick with it. Oh, and bonus….I was NOT starving this time.

My Aunt asked me what I was doing to keep it up. I felt the easiest way to share my day, would be to blog about it. Here is an example of my day.
