The WW weekly discussion topic this week was Get Happier, Get Healthier. Because when you’re happier, it doesn’t seem as hard to move around more, or make healthy choices, its as if they come naturally, and these choices that you make which make you feel good can also inspire you to keep going and in turn continue feeding into your happiness. So what is … Read More Weekly Discussion: What’s your happiness?
Anastasia is not old enough where I’m dealing with this with her currently but I’ve made this discovery about myself as well. WW (aka WeightWatchers) is a great program because it is not one of those “diets” where you have to cut out food, you don’t have to cut out carbs, or sweets, or whatever else you like as long as you work the … Read More Moderation or Deprivation
Yesterday was another successful weigh in at my Wednesday WW meeting. Down 3lbs this week and it’s amazing! This weeks discussion is a little trick though. The subject for this week is Sleep Well I mean, we’ve all heard the studies about how you need to get 7,8,9 hours of sleep in order to be productive. Well, this isn’t just a healthy, weight-loss blog. … Read More Weekly Discussion: Sleep Well
I realize that I am a few days late but this weeks Wednesday discussion was a really powerful one. Because the discussion this week is about being grateful. Even if the scale isn’t showing what you want it to, or you are struggling with being a mom, life, and trying to live a healthy lifestyle, there are plenty of things we can be grateful … Read More Weekly Discussion: Being Grateful
It’s been a busy week I’ll admit. In between working and sitting in the car, for a total of 3 hours, commuting I treasure the moments I get with my sweet little girl and sometimes that makes writing a little difficult. Especially now that she is starting to stay awake longer and is laughing and smiling. So while we spend our nights talking and … Read More Another Weekly Discussion: Non-Scale Victories
I was thinking about my reflections on this weeks weekly topic and started to think, how can I teach Anastasia to love her self, and have confidence in herself, when I do not have the confidence or self-esteem myself. As you read in my previous post you know that this is something I struggle with but am improving and self reflecting. But to piggy-back off … Read More Your shadow is watching: teaching by example.
On this road to trying to lead a healthier lifestyle and get down to a healthier weight there is one thing that I have really worked on and struggled with and that is getting my mindset in the right place. Because living a healthy lifestyle is so much more than just exercising and losing weight. Many, like me, who have struggled with their weight … Read More Thoughts on this weeks Weight Watcher Weekly Topic: You are so much more than a number
For any of my Weight Watchin’ buddies out there you know exactly what I am referring to. But for those of you who don’t know, when you join Weight Watchers you are told to choose a reason why, why you are doing what you’re doing. Everyone has their own reason for wanting to take back control of their body. They could be health related … Read More My Why: A reminder at why I am choosing to be a healthier new me.
So in all truth. I have been overweight my entire life, there’s no “beating around the bush” and I have probably tried every diet and weight-loss fad in the book but they never stuck. The only thing that has really worked for me was joining Weight Watchers, I had to stop doing it when I got pregnant but now that Anastasia is home and … Read More Why this Mama wants to take back control of her body
