I wrote a really long comment to Leonie's comment about helping each other with accountabilty. You all may have disucssed this aleady, as I have not read all the back posts yet.. but I would love to have help.. and maybe we can post here what we want to be held accountable for?
I would like to focus on just staying on the Weight Watchers plan for a few weeks to see if I can get some portion control back in my life.
Here are my comments from the other post. Please post anything you want acccountability on.. and we can help each other.
My comments on previous post:
Yes, let's hold each other accountable... but in a very positive way.. which I know you are.. but I used to have a friend I asked to yell at me if I messed up. lol I am getting too old for that.
I thinking today about your post about standing up eating M&Ms etc. Oh I could relate. I do 80% of my mindless eating on my feet, at the island of my kitchen with the news on.
I thought today... next time I start do to that (my nemesis is usually chips..) I am going to think of Leonie. (or anyone else here who struggles with this) and think.. what would I want Leonie to do right now? I want the best for her-- she is so sweet and must be feeling down or tired or stressed.
I am going to hope she stops.. gives herself a hug and maybe even take a moment to sit and have a cup of tea and be kind to herself. Just like I would be kind to her if I were there.
I found it so much easier to thinking these things for others than for myself! For myself I just think.. 'you dummy! Why did you eat? You should be cleaining the house or working... you blew it again!"
I would never say that to one of you.. so, maybe my virtual support of you when *I* am about to mess up will train me to also be kind to myself.
Does this make any sense? But I will hold you accountable and want to hear your succeses and challenges.
One thing I have done since starting WW is stocked my fridge with lots of good stuff.
I found I would be STARVING and no time- eating on the fly and no good choices. So I got tons of great stuff.
Also cleand out the fridge (it was packed adn a mess) so I can find everything.
The first week went pretty well until a dinner party we were invited to Fri night. I budgeted pretty well.. but then had some wine.. and when I got home ate half a bag of chips. How embarrasing?
Oh well, I am what I am!
So ate light today.. tomorrow is my first weigh in at WW.. lol.. silly but now my Monday mornings will be my little benchmarks....
Let me know what kind of support you need.. maybe we can all post?
I will make a new post for that.
