Getting rid of excess weight is soooo much more work than gaining it! Fattening foods just seem to taste so much more delicious than they should. I'm sure there is a government conspiracy to have us all become addicted to junk food so that we stay over weight and out of shape. But that's another blog!
My weakness is salty savory stuff ... potato chips being my downfall. I can't buy them as I eat them all. Now I buy the single packs or Pringles singles (2 points).
I'm glad I've told a lot of friends about wanting to lose weight as well as joining Weight Watchers. Sometimes I get a friendly comment that helps keep me on track. My Weight Watcher buddy is especially good at saying something kind that gets my attention. We celebrate our meeting by having a healthy lunch together. I like breakfast at any time of day, so we were having breakfast. The gluten free toast was so delicious, I dipped the crust into my butter pat. Sharon gently said "I'm glad you are enjoying your meal but you probably don't want anymore of that butter". And she was right.
I picked up Braeden one afternoon to come spend the night. All morning I had run errands and was productive. But I didn't pack a healthy snack to keep me on track so I thought I would treat him to a McDonald's Happy Meal (and grab a little Happy Meal for myself). Boy was I surprised!
He said "no tank you JB Gramma, McDonald's is not healthy for my bones. Let's eat at your house." Oh my goodness! And so we did! Cottage cheese and lots of cut up fruit and he also had half of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. He was right. Much better for our "bones."
