New Plan of Attack
The wife and I are trying Weight Watchers and I’m trying to learn some stuff and I will say this- weight loss is 100% mental. Period.
Sure you have to watch your food and exercise and blah…blah…blah.
Regardless of how you do it, it’s 100% mental.
We did keto for a while and I had a huge success but I continued to binge eat because I tried to get EVERYTHING in because I knew, when I got back on keto, I could no longer have those things.
Even though this is our first week of Weight Watchers- I’ve already realized that I don’t binge eat because I don’t feel like this is the “last time I’ll ever have this” and that is honestly helped amazingly to not binge eat.
The last couple of days, I’ve been able to have a few cookies, a couple “fun size” candy bars and still have stuff like that left over for other days…where as, on keto, I would have to eat it ALL so that it wouldn’t be in the house tomorrow so I could “get back on track”.
Weight Watchers has already helped me with portion control and the app is pretty awesome and the number system actually does help.
Don’t get me wrong- I love keto and truly feel it’s the best way to LOSE weight…however, that has always been my problem- I’m great at losing weight but then I gain it all back because I haven’t learned anything…I haven’t learned a way to create healthy habits for a lifetime…I just continue to go from one extreme to the other and I have to stop that.
I really think the Weight Watches program is something I can stick with because it’s not going from extreme to extreme but seems to just meet in the middle and teaches you how to eat “normal” without going insane.
So far so good.
