Staying the Course-non dog related!

Some of my new best friends, LOVE that it is summer and all the great fruits and veggies are in season! Do you know how many berries you can eat and it is still just a point on weight watchers? A LOT!








I have been trying to lose some weight and get healthy and I do feel so much better, BUT...for almost 4 weeks nothing was happening! I was weighing and measuring all my food, tracking everything I ate, taking my walks, doing all the right things and the scale went up a bit at first then just refused to budge. It was not like my clothes were getting loser..so it was frustrating. I reminded myself that I needed a change of life so really did it matter in the long run how long things took? Toward the end of thise little stretch I have to say it was a little harder to stay on track with nothing happening, but I felt like what other choice did I have, I had come too far to just throw the whole plan out the window.

WELL, all of a sudden things are paying off and the scale is moving once again, like I went down three pounds in a matter of days, YIPPIE! Guess with all things really worth doing...you have to be patient and stay the course. It sure is easier to do all the right things though when it feels like it is paying off, LOL!

I have done WW before and I really like the program, but I have to say this is the easiest time by far to stay on the program. It is a little harder being vegetarian, I am going to have to do a lot more cooking and get creative because it is harder to find easy things that do not have meat. On the plus side meat has a lot of calories and points so not eating meat has made keeping on track with points easier!

I do consider myself very lucky because it is summer and the summer fruits and veggies are all in season. I love the produce I have been getting at Costco, and that makes it so much easier to eat healthy and stay on track!

That's really awesome. I don't really need to lose weight per se, but I'm still not in the best shape. I miss my muscle tone. It's just so darn hard to exercise in this heat.

Keep up the great work. Wish losing it was as easy as gaining it. :)

Go Kathy!! It's so hard to stick with something when you can't immediately see results (kinda like working with our crazy dogs=). Good for you for sticking with it! Keep at it!
