I am struggling… and I hate it!
I have been following Weight Watchers, SmartPoints program a.k.a. Beyond the Scale, since March 2016. As of December 15, 2016 I am only down 20 pounds…
The problem is NOT the program… the problem is me…
I am in a very stressful time in my life right now, taking care of my ailing mother and that is my only excuse. Before my mom’s heart attack and heart surgery in May, I was steadily losing weight each week. Now, I am up and down, up and down and just stuck.
So, I have done some sole searching, checked back into my WHY and had to ask myself what am I going to do? With the price of WW being $49.95 a month, I can’t afford to keep this up if I am not going to follow the program and see the results I know I can have. Has anyone else been in my shoes? What do you do?
I know that with all the stress in my life this year there is a very real possibility that had I not been following this program I would be 50 pounds heavier right now. I also know that life happens and no matter what we have going on, we need to be able to find other ways to cope with life, without turning to food.
I am ready to re-commit to this plan, with 100% effort and discipline and to do that I am working on a weekly food prep plan.
I will post a meal prep plan but in the meantime, here’s a recipe for a Pumpkin Pie and Banana Protein Shake to get the day started right.
