I weighed in this evening for the first time in almost a month. Had to do it as WW employees are required to submit a weigh in sheet by the 15th of each month. I posted a 6.6 lb. gain. I knew it was coming and was trying to put it off as long as possible. I know what my problem is, I track what I want. I eat until my points are gone and then I snack some more without writing anything down. Thinking that if I don't write it down, it didn't happen. I've had some late night snacking issues especially the last week or two waiting for baby. I've stayed up too late and snacked on good choices, but not good portions. Again, the Fiber One Bars came back to bite me. Two nights in a row I've finished an entire box. You would think by now I should know better than to even buy the darn things. I am snacking especially when I'm tired and sleep has been a luxury item these last two weeks. Doesn't seem to be going to get any better since school is now out for the summer and the kiddos think that means bedtime is now 10:00.
So what's my plan? I will track daily, writing EVERYTHING down or at least keeping track in my head and stopping when I am out of points. I haven't written anything down since reaching lifetime and I know what I usually eat for breakfast and lunch, it's dinner and evening snacks that I need to track. I will also exercise daily once again. I have been ignoring this important aspect, but the last two nights have decided once again that it is important and at 9:15ish, I have hopped on the elliptical. I'm so tired, it really doesn't keep my awake any longer than I would be anyway. Actually, tonight I made a pot of coffee at 9:00 just so I would be awake enough to exercise.
WW 4-way approach involves the acronym: TEAM. T~Think First, E~Eat Wisely, A~Attend Meetings, M~Move More. I know what to do, now I just need to do it.
