A couple of cool announcements:
First, Weight Watchers was named the #1 weight loss diet by US News and World Report!!!
“The U.S. News and World Report study touts Weight Watchers as a diet in which no food is off limits and people can eat what they want by controlling their portion sizes. It also highlighted the flexibility to shape your own diet. The experts who worked on the rankings also found Weight Watchers to be safe, nutritious, and easy to follow. “In terms of commercial weight loss plans, this is as good as it gets,” one expert said.”

Topic of our Meeting today:
Self Monitoring for optimal weight loss.
Getting to Know ME.
We were asked the question:
What do I know about myself??
Our sub talked about her weakness for candy.
Here are a few of the many things I know about myself–
I know that my ultimate weakness is cookies.
I know that my salty weakness is chips & salsa.
I know that when I am at a family get together-my old habits come back really easily.
I know that I feel so much better when I work out.
I know that I have a hard time motivating myself to do it some mornings.
I know that I have come a long way so far and am proud of my accomplisments.
I know that I am becoming a healthier and more fit Mama with the healthy choices I make everyday.
I know that my kids will benefit from my example.
I know that WW works if I just continue to learn patience. 😉
I know that I have to track every single day in order to stay on track.
I know I need my buddy system to keep me from going crazy(er). ;))
I know I have to attend my weigh in and meeting each week cause it keeps me accountable and motivates me.
I know that I am becoming a better person as I put myself first and learn to love ME.
Another thing we talked about was-
What do you track besides food?
Thought of the Day
We were encouraged to step it up this week with our tracking by:
-Track things other than food so you can get more feedback.
-Become aware of obstacles you encounter daily so you can make wiser choices.
-Track how you handle obstacles to identify strengths.
*I already track all the things on the list above except the last two–
so I think I am going to try tracking more of my daily thoughts/feelings and see what I can learn from that.
Quote of the Day:
“Good judgement comes from experience
and often experience comes from bad judgement.”
