Big decisions are sometimes hard to make. We get in a rut, we use things as a crutch, we become fearful of change. Last week, I made a really big decision, it was difficult to make because of all the above! But it was time that I faced a few facts. The Weight Watchers program was not working for me, truthfully, it has not really worked for me since they implemented the Points + system. I have been, pretty much, just giving them my money every month because I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to go about losing weight on my own. I have actually lost 2 pounds since I made this decision! And I have not lost a pound in over a year with Weight Watchers!! I have decided to use Spark People to help me with my weight loss journey. I think that keeping up with my calories, fat, carbs, fiber and protein is going to work better for me than the points system. I know what I have to do and I think Spark People will help me get where I need to go. An odd thing is--now I feel really free! I actually feel like I can eat what I want and not feel guilty about it! LOL I have practiced Moderation for over 20 years now but now I have added regular exercise to the equation. I have a feeling that I am going to be getting it right, for a change! I also think I am going to be happier and have a bit of extra money for a new outfit for a reward, when I feel like I have earned one! :) This is going to work for me.
