Today I am taking a weight management field trip! I am going to a wedding and I am going to practice all those things I have read about so many times about how a weight watcher should handle a social event where there'll be food. As a pre-wedding practice exercise, I'm going to list all the tips I can remember - and then I'm going to USE them!
*Eat a balanced, satisfying meal before you go.
*Exercise that day.
*Go right back to your normal routine afterwards.
*Drink lots of water, including a glass of water in between alcoholic beverages.
*Focus on PEOPLE, not FOOD.
*I have never tried the WW Core program, but I have read it. Remember the fullness scale and STOP EATING when SATISFIED, which means to stop eating BEFORE FULL!!!
*Be selective. Make healthy choices but if there is ONE treat that looks good, eat a small portion of it.
I'm sure there are other tips, but I'm outta time! My own personal motivators are:
1. Don't look like a pig. Eat like a thin girl. Remember the time I ate at a buffet and took a small/medium amount of food, left some on the plate (the breading), and put my napkin on top to show I was done. Eat like a thin girl to BE a thin girl!
2. I want to have a happy time on the scale tomorrow morning and be proud of myself!
3. Teensy tiny bridesmaid dress!
