Hello My Friends!
Good Morning everyone! I hope you're all well!
I'm sitting here drinking my coffee & contemplating what I should write. Actually, I'm quite excited & thrilled I had such success on the scales yesterday!
And I want to share not only what went right this week, but give you all a glimpse of how I did it! Cause I know we're all, somewhat, on the same journey...& we're all thriving to be successful! So, I'm gonna do my very best to share my insight on the week!
First, let me just say that I was down 4.6 lbs for a grand total of 25.8 lbs!
Now, you all know I'm doing the Weight Watcher thing. I do the weekly meetings, & honestly, it helps me to go & "get centered" once a week. I listen to what others are doing & struggling with & listen to what works for them. Well, last week the leader discussed the Simply Filling Technique & how she uses it to maintain her weight loss. Mind you, she's been on maintenance for 11 years, so she's doing something right! (I was always told, if you're gonna emulate another person, pick someone who's successful!) So I looked up the plan in my WW workbook & decided that's what I was gonna do this week...follow the Simply Filling Technique (SFT). Basically, all it is, is putting a focus on "power foods". Power foods are simply what are also called "Super Foods". A focus on fresh fruits & veggies, whole grains, lean meats, fat free dairy, & healthy oils. I cut out all the "extras" this week & simplified my meals, eating only turkey, chicken, & fish, simply made. Trust me guys, I ate well! And the premise of the plan is that you eat when you're hungry. And you don't have to track (but I did anyways)... I was scared not to! You are permitted 48 points for extras, like I had a handful of pistachios one evening.
Of course, I didn't run into many stressors this week, except for well, Tuesday! Ya know, the election & all! And no parties this week! But, I know we're going into the holiday season & I do have a fancy dinner I'll be attending next Saturday! But I can see how I can use this SFT plan around those events to keep on track! Even if it's just to maintain!
Cause maintaining is better than gaining!
Well, have a fabulous week, everyone! I'm doing PILATES & DRUMS ALIVE this morning! It's been a bit chilly here in SW Florida (it's in the 50's this morning & 70's in the afternoon...oh, I know, I'm a freeze baby!!!), so it's really making me move in the morning! It's supposed to start warming up today, anyway!!!
