Today is the beginning of a new relationship. I am super excited for this new endeavor but also a little nervous. You never know which way it can turn out, and it can definitely have its ups and downs.
I have decided to join Weight Watchers. I was hesitant at first to document my journey because it can be a very personal experience. But I decided that because it is so personal, many of you would know what I was going through and we could perhaps go on this journey together if you are trying to lose some weight. I also wanted to document my experience because being in my 30s, I have noticed that my metabolism has slowed dramatically. I am sure many of you know what that is like, especially if you are trying to get rid of that baby weight. It can be difficult.
I also wanted to write about this program because I have had many questions from readers about trying to lose weight (read the latest groundbreaking research) at our age and if I know anything about the new Points Plus Weight Watchers program.
I have done Weight Watchers in the past with success in my 20s. I have not tried the new program yet and I have never tried to lose weight (I was making these mistakes) with an online program.
I am super excited to try this. It is time for something new.
I can’t say that I haven’t been on this diet train already this year. In fact, I have been dieting since June. So in just over 4 months I have lost some weight, but for 2 months I have not lost an ounce. I haven’t gained but I haven’t lost.
It can get really frustrating when you cut out everything from your diet (avoid these 4 diet mistakes) and not see results.
In fact, I even went vegan for about 2 months just to see if that would make a difference. I know that there is such a thing as a ‘un-healthy’ vegan, but this is what I cut out:
Wish me luck. I am excited and hope I can get to my goal weight soon. I will talk more about the diet and how it works in the coming weeks. Please, leave a comment if you know my pain. :)
