I have been trying to follow Weight Watchers FLEX plan. I say try because I was only successful for three consecutive days last week. But, I felt so good those days. The last two days were good until it came time to make dinner, and I was hungry, and I started munching. A little bit here and a little bit there, until I had eaten so much, I wasn't hungry for dinner by the time it was ready. Plus, I didn't write down those little bites of this and that, so had no conception whatsoever of how many calories (or points) I had consumed. And then I start to think that I've already blown it, so why not just go ahead and have dinner with my family? And have dessert, too? And then, why not just continue snacking into the night, until bed?
Well, for one thing, I don't sleep well on a full (actually, overly-full) stomach. Also, the guilt is pretty bad, too, in spite of what I know about not beating yourself up for falling, etc. And then there's the 1.4 weight gain on the scale the next morning. Okay, I know better. I just need to "apply myself". This is what I tell by children all of the time! Better take your own advice, Mom!
