According to Weight Watchers Fruit is Free Unless You Blend It

According to Weight Watchers Fruit is Free Unless You Blend It

I weighed in at Weight Watchers on Thursday after being gone for our honeymoon, celebrating the 4th of July and my birthday, and I’m happy to say that my weight stayed the same. After several days of lobster and other delicious food, coconut drinks and Prosecco I know that it’s time to get back on track. We celebrated my birthday with a few friends on Friday night as well, and I ate two child size slices of pizza. The celebrations haven’t stopped since we got married. Actually, they started before that when our close friends were married, and we’ve been celebrating ever since (about 7 weeks.) I’m definitely not complaining, but all of this fun is exhausting! I’m thankful to be back home and getting settled into married life. Now that all of the major life events are over (for now) it’s time to get back into a healthy groove. Michael and I both know how important it is to make healthy choices, and we’re striving to do it together. We’re at the point in which we don’t have anything interesting unhealthy to snack on, so we look to things like fruit and high-protein snacks when we want something. I’m […]

10 Reasons Why I Love Weight Watchers!

10 Reasons Why I Love Weight Watchers!

When I finally decided to take control of my health, I wanted to choose a program that would be compatible with my lifestyle and sustainable in the long-term.

Back in 2014, I was a serial dieter. I’d tried cabbage soup diets, drank weight loss shakes, eaten Medifast and other prepackaged meal programs, you name it! There was very little I had not tried. And while I lost weight on each of those, the moment I stopped eating their food or from their restrictive diet plan, my weight always crept back up because I hadn’t learned how to eat the foods I love, the foods that are regularly available and most of all, I had no sense of moderation or balance.

So I went back to the only weight loss program that I knew would allow me to eat REAL food: Weight Watchers.

And I’ve stuck with it, over the past 2+ years and -115lbs of weight loss because Weight Watchers has a number of advantages just not available in other weight loss programs.

Check them out in my weekly column for Organize Yourself Skinny HERE!

Fat People Still Have To Eat, And Sometimes I Don’t Want Salad

Right now I’m sitting in a hipster coffee shop drinking a latte that was so pretty that I didn’t want to touch it. They serve the biggest, most ridiculous doughnuts I’ve ever seen, and I’ve been to some pretty ridiculous doughnut shops. The lattes here are too delicious to express with words, and on this day of rest, I decided to indulge in (part of) a doughnut. They’re so big that if I tried to eat it all I’d probably end up at the emergency room, or maybe I’d just feel sick. I don’t intend to find out. I spend a lot of time sharing my thoughts and ideas – on social media, here on the blog and in person with friends and family. I’m honest about my journey, struggles and victories, and it helps me keep track of where I’ve been and where I’m going. Being as open as I am also invites judgement, sometimes even from well-meaning people who just don’t have a clue. I like food…sushi, cookies, lattes, etc. Sometimes I eat that stuff, and if I’m eating something pretty I’m probably going to post it on Instagram. I’m as open about that as I would be about posting […]
