Why Do We Forget How Good It Feels To Lose Weight?

November 12, 2009

Bunny feels great!

She’s following her plan and counting her points and feeling successfulHappy

and productive

and hopeful

and excited

and wondering why she always forgets how good she feels when she’s NOT letting the mindless eating Monster lead her around by the nose.

She’s having baked chicken with veggies for dinner. She used to skip dinner half the time because it was too much trouble to cook something different for herself than for low-carb/no seasoning Buff. There’s no way she’s going to eat what he eats (plain burger patties, Campbell’s beef broth and a salad as big as a swimming pool), even though when she did that diet she lost a ton of weight. Bunny doesn’t want to give up fruit, and fruit has carbs, so there you go. And good luck finding a low-carb dessert (she ate enough sugar-free Jello to float Oasis of the Seas, thank you very much).

The problem she is having is that she is full after dinner, but she still has 6, 7 or 8 points to eat.  30 points a day is a LOT!

Lately, her solution has been Weight Watchers Chocolate Smoothie with nonfat milk and a tablespoon of peanut butter. Toss it in a blender with some ice to make it spoonable.  5 points, mmmm, we’re done, night-night.

We know she should work on eating more points earlier in the day, but right now she’s losing weight and feeling good, so we’re just hopping on the train, enjoying the ride and keeping our mouths shut.

  1. […] Bunny is beaten up and her defenses are down, but she hasn’t lost her way. She’s anxiously looking forward to a return to normalcy. Sunday. Weight Watchers points. Control. She’s really looking forward to it. She knows she will feel better. […]


  2. […] In fact, you felt GREAT when you were making better choices. Remember? […]


  3. […] remembers how good it feels to lose weight, and she wants to feel that way […]
