I have been doing great on this healthy journey. Not perfect, but honestly great. The past couple weeks have been a journey of self-reflection on why I am overeating (stress mainly and to feel joy secondary) but it has also been a re-start on habits that I had previously done. Good habits.
I love Weight Watchers. I have blogged about my journey with Weight Watchers many times. I love it because it is simple and I get to eat the foods I like. But more than that, it teaches me to eat exactly the amount I need and no more. But, it gives me wiggle room every week to splurge. And you all should know by now, I love food, and I love to splurge.
Moderation is the key!
This past week I started the Weight Watchers Simple Start program and I couldn’t be happier. ‘Cause honestly, I don’t get to go to the gym as often as I like but when I commit to eating healthy and stay generally active my pants just fit better. Really. This morning I looked down at my tummy (post-two kids) and it was almost flat. Do you know how happy that makes me? I don’t own a scale. I don’t want one. I judge my weight based on the fit of my clothing. My goal? Getting back into my skinny jeans. I am only one size away now, and I know I can get there. It really is just one day at a time.
So how am I rewarding myself after a great week of staying on track?
Meet my friend, bite sized caramels!
At only 3 Weight Watchers plus points these are so good and just the right amount of chocolate and caramel to satisfy my big sweet tooth.
