Is It Worth It?

Friday, April 11, 2014

This was the discussion topic in Weight Watchers last night.

Before automatically grabbing for something, emoticon

and ask yourself: IS IT WORTH IT?

* Is it an occasion?
* How often do you eat this food? Can you get it any time?
* Does it look delicious and amazing?
* Do you have the calories to "spend" on it?
* Can you control how much of it you eat?

I thought these were excellent points, and honestly, ones we can't hear too often. It is easy to grab something just because it "shows up" -- muffins in the break room at work, the sample lady at the grocery store, your husband brings home candy -- but really -- if we keep the questions above in mind, chances are we won't indulge.

I also like this thought: "Is this food worthy of ME?" Are we eating leftovers so they don't go to waste, or eating just because someone else is? Are we eating UN-amazing food to soothe some other emotion?

Good thoughts to ponder!

I am a lifetime member of WW and so I only have to weigh in once a month. I have lost a bit this week, about 8/10 of a pound, but I wanted to save my $12 so I didn't weigh in officially.

Now I'm off to the fitness center; Pilates and 3 miles on the treadmill are in my immediate future! Have a great weekend, Sparklers! emoticon
