Weight Watchers Wagon

Tony, aka the "Anti Jared", was probably the first weight loss blogger I followed regularly. He had a particularly harsh post to the WL blogging community and I'm still not sure what to think of it. Do I agree with him? Mostly. I'm not sure I get where he is coming from with this "no cheating, ever" philosophy. Actually, I get it in theory completely. I'm coming from a similar place, but in my experience, it is possible to have splurges in moderation. By no means am I perfect at this. Sometimes, trigger foods take me right over a cliff...but not always. I would like to be able to incorporate fun foods that are a treat on occasion. So, I am not sure if I agree with his "no cheating, ever" in practice. However, his philosophy is working great for him so you definitely can't argue with results. GET IT JARED TONY!

Anyway, part of me wondered if he wasn't right about peoples' "I'm going to turn over a new leaf today!" attitudes. As you know I haven't been eating all that well. Because of not overdoing it on the portions and because I work out a lot, I haven't paid that much for it on the scale. I need to get the food half of the equation under control, though, if I want to progress further down the road that is WL. Staying plateaued is not really enough.

I am going to get back on the WW wagon and I thought to myself this morning "I will do it tomorrow." This is the type of thing Tony is talking about. Why wait until tomorrow? Why let another second of life pass you by? The time is now, the day is here. (That was for my musical theatre peeps...get it?) I will start to count points for the rest of the day. Delaying the start of this until tomorrow is essentially just giving yourself a cheap out to sabotage your progress for the rest of the day. What a waste. I am taking back control now. Weight Watchers: game on.

  1. I agree that you shouldn't wait until tomorrow to do ANYTHING b/c there might not be a tomorrow so we are ALL going to fall off of the healthy food and healthy lifestyle wagon but as long as we get back on that SAME day I believe you are still in the healthy mind set that you need to try to always be in the majority of the time in order to get and stay healthy :)
