You lost 205lbs, so what – no one cares….
Not really but this is how I am feeling these days. I think it was addictive to have something to reach towards and all the accolades along the way with those goals. So this post is a selfish one, it’s a vent and a reflection to get me back to a healthy way of approaching life.
Now I am here, I did it! I reached goal weight and now a life time member, but that’s old news now.
Let’s face it, I am not Oprah, so I am not all that important. But seriously, I still find it funny that Weight Watchers doesn’t take advantage of people like me that have had as much success as I have. I am sure there are others, right? I can’t be alone. Nothing sells a product more than results, but let’s face it, they are relying on Oprah to do this. Don’t get me wrong, I love Oprah, I probably cried when the last episode of the Oprah show aired and I hope she has great success with this program. I can’t help but feel like this is the only thing Weight Watchers thinks they have to offer, it’s all over every email and commercial they do but this program is so much more than just a celebrity face. I hope Weight Watchers realizes that and starts to get back to the basics, results are the only true seller.
It’s been an interesting and sometimes turbulent time for me lately. Not to help matters I seem to sitting at 176lbs right now rather than my more comfortable 173lbs. I know it’s just because I am burning less calories but it’s also because I had gotten accustom to having a little bit of slack with my running. You burn so much calories on those runs, if I had that extra glass of wine, it didn’t matter. Now everything matters; I feel like I am spending my weekdays correcting my weekends. My husband leaves tomorrow for a couple weeks, I have a friend visiting this weekend but once this weekends over I am going to be putting my head down and get serious again. I will make my 173lbs again before the end of March.
When I first started writing this it was because I wasn’t sure what I need to focus on right now. Usually I would say to myself focus on a fitness goals but I can’t really even do that because I am only to run 5-7km 3x a week. So I don’t have that half-marathon training right now that I can focus on. But I think I just figured it out for myself while processing how I am feeling. I will focus on my weight loss, getting rid of those 3lbs. My goal weight is 174lbs so I always like to be sitting on the lower side of things. So thanks for listening, you just helped me figure out what I need to focus on right now. 🙂
But what’s next after that? I will hit my goal, no doubt, I always do. So then what, I might be able to up my mileage by then. Maybe I can start training for longer runs again? I have my tummy tuck on May 27th, it sure would be awesome to run a half-marathon just before that. This would give me that thing, that thing I need to always be working towards…
What is your goal, what are you working towards?
