Welcome to the first installment (of MANY lol) of Weight Watchers Wednesdays
I'll keep these short and sweet simply because there is so much information about Weight Watchers and losing weight that I know and am learning that it would be so overwhelming if I just wrote and wrote and wrote.
So I'll give tips, recipes, advice...a whole mess of info every week about my journey and what you can do as well while you are on yours.
Since I'm starting again (for the umpteenth time lol) I had to learn a lot of new things: portion control, picking better options, eating and discovering more veggies and fruit. But the one thing that I really needed to learn is patience.
I am impatient to a fault. I want my weight down and I wanted it down yesterday...real talk. I want to be able to run a mile in eight minutes. I want to be able to wear some hot pants (#operationbootyshorts2014 lol).
But I can't.
I have to tell myself everyday...and I mean EVERYDAMNDAY...that it's not going to happen right away. I'm not going to be whatever size (which I'm not sure of right now...it's just going to be a healthy size) I want to be tomorrow...and that is fine.
And this advice to you (and myself) is simple and standard: it didn't take me two days to gain the weight and it's not going to take me two days to lose it all. So patience has to be had. It is a virtue after all.
