Starting over again

Remember when I was on Weight Watchers? I loved it, and I still speak highly of it. The program changed my life. I was on it for a year and lost 90 pounds. 

And then I thought "I got this" and quit. 

And then, over a year later, I've put back on 13 of those 90 pounds and I decided that no, I don't "got this". 

13 pounds, in the grand scheme of things, isn't a lot. I haven't even gone up in any sizes in any of my clothes. However...I don't like it, and I'm gonna stop it. 

I rejoined Weight Watchers last night, even though I shouldn't be spending money on stuff like that. But I knew I needed help gaining control, and I trust the WW program. 

I started WW without a clue in the world as to how to do anything. I weighed A LOT more, and the weight flew off without much of an effort on my part. I seriously just started cutting out some crap and watching my portions, and boom, 90 pounds were gone. 

It's harder now to drop weight, and I know the 13 pounds won't come off easily, or as quickly as they did before. And I'm okay with that. I just want to feel like I have some control over my eating. Also, I want to see my activity points adding up. Yes, I run with the Nike app, so I collect Nike fuel or whatever, but let's get real. I don't even know what that means. There is something about collecting activity points, and knowing I can eat them later if I want, that makes me feel like everything is worth it. 

So today was day one on WW, and my weigh in days are Thursdays, just like before. Today I have one point left and I earned 9 activity points, and I am starving. But it's late...I don't think I need to snack. So I'm going to drink some water and go to bed!

Look at me, being a good little Weight Watcher!
