Inspire Me Healthy

Dont Quote The Raven

Instead of Awkward & Awesome Thursday, I decided to link up for Inspire Me Healthy.  

Honesty time...Several years ago, my Doctor told me I couldn't have caffeine, so I immediately stopped drinking it.  I went just over 2 years without drinking pop. After my heart surgery in December, I decided I was safe to start drinking it again. Little did I know, that meant the weight would start piling on.  Don't get me wrong, I've never been overweight, but I've always had curves.  Recently, I noticed those curves had been getting bigger.  I weighed myself a few weeks ago and realized that I was at my heaviest weight EVER. I immediately decided to fix this problem. 

My solution?  Join Weight Watchers. I have no problem with working out, in fact, I work out multiple times a week, but that's by no means a quick fix. I knew Weight Watchers worked because my brother and sister-in-law had both lost a lot of weight on it.  

I have now been on Weight Watchers for almost two weeks. The results haven't been immediate, but I have lost about 3 pounds so far! Three pounds might not seem like a lot, but I can definitely tell a difference!  

Weight Watchers hasn't been difficult. The hardest part is remembering to track your food. You can still eat anything you want (which is what I love), as long as you do so in correct proportions.  I had no idea I was eating such large proportions; it has definitely been an eye opener!  I now realize that if I had kept my habits up, my butt would be looking like Kim K's in NO time.  

I still have quite a ways to go before I get to my goal weight, but I like that I'm doing it the healthy way--no cheater shakes or pills.



P.S. Don't forget to come back and link-up for Two Truths & a Lie next Tuesday!
