Weight Watchers Keeps Me Accountable
Yesterday I went to WW and thankfully lost 1 pound - I will take it. To be honest I don't follow the WW plan any more. My new diet is called HEAL. Basically high protein and very little carbs. I am allowed 20 carbs per day. It is a lot like the Atkins diet. No sugar with a lot of protein and salads which I can do. When I followed WW I didn't lose the weight. I loved my sweets, fruits and great bread. Plus now I am a diabetic, and really need to get my weight off. All of my meds have the side effect of weigh gain. That includes cholesterol, high blood pressure and keeping my mind sane. I need those meds especially the sanity meds. It took over 6 months to find the correct balance of them. I call it my sanity cocktail. This is the ONLY cocktail I have because those meds and alcohol really don't mix well. Well you call throwing up in the middle of night after drinking one glass of wine fun. I don't. I throw up off my migraines. That is enough. Back to my diet . . .
Even I don't their diet I continue going to WW meetings because I need to see my progress. The weekly weigh in keeps me on the weigh loss plan. The best part is I see my friends there. That is always a plus in my day.
Have a great day! I am getting my hair and finding another bathing suit. Mine doesn't fit, so I can't go to water aerobics. During our horribly hot summers, I can walk in the air conditioned mall or do water aerobics. I am trying to do both, Therefore I need a bathing suit. Today is not a bad temperature for Palm Springs - only 106 F.
