This......or that.....

I'm need of some serious motivation. I think I thought getting back on the Weight Watchers wagon would be a breeze, the weight would drop off, and in a few short weeks, I'd be back to that magic weight that my body seems to like to hover around (that is, when I don't mistreat it and feed it with eons of chocolate and lollies, as was the case in the latter half of last year).

I was feeling really positive when I stepped on the scales for the weekly weigh-in Monday tonight, knowing that I had been within my points all of the previous week AND that I'd stepped up a bit on my normal exercise regime. So you can imagine my annoyance when the scales were 700g heavier. Grrrrr. I don't recall that happening once last time we did this journey.

So I'm in need of a bit of a self pep talk. Telling myself it will be worth it and I can do it. That it's a blip and I need to keep my eyes on the long-term goal. Getting back into good habits. Seeing chocolate and lollies as treats not a daily/nightly indulgence.

Despite the setback, I am going to grit my teeth and carry on.

Enjoying tasty and filling meals such as these for just 3 points (ignoring the loner meat patty on the side that is not part of it!). I didn't even miss not having any cheese on my burger, the flavour of the mustard and gherkins (both zero points) more than made up for it.


That big plateful sure looks a lot compared to that one little chocolate bar...at 5 points.


Or I could eat all this for 5 points....(although I might have a bit of a stomach ache if it was all in one go mind you!)


Compared to that one little chocolate bar at 5 points...


Or I could eat all this for 5 points...(although I reckon my tongue would be glued to the roof of my mouth after 10 packets in a row!)


Or that one little chocolate bar for 5 points.....


I could eat all this (once you include the milk) for 5 points....


Or just that one little chocolate bar at 5 points...


It's gotta be worth it in the end right?!

Thus ends my pep talk. I'm hoping for a much better result next week!

Don't be too hard on yourself...maybe it's just your body adjusting to the new routine? You'll get back on track in no time, especially with all those delicious-looking foods. Half the battle is knowing what you should and shouldn't put in your mouth. That chocolate bar? It ain't worth it :)

Good luck on your weight loss journey Meghan! :)

Aw man, I'd go for the chocolate bar every time, I'm afraid. I know I shouldn't though and your absolutely right, the other foods would be so much more worth it!

You can do it...those alternatives to the chocolate bar are just brighter and more fun (I'm joining the pep talk here!). Soon hopefully for us both those chocolates won't call our name so loudly...all the best for this week :)
