I feel super vulnerable posting this. But I like to be real and would like to share this journey with you & so here goes nothing.
You know how we want to be the very best version of ourselves? I’ve felt for awhile now there have been a few things holding me back.
Since moving to the East Coast - I’ve gained about 30 pounds, mostly I’m assuming from not being as active. But also because being totally honest I’ve been a sad, lonely and have felt incredibly isolated living in a small town. I’m an emotional eater, so when I’m feeling that stuff I tend to turn to food.
I eat pretty healthy, as I truly love healthy foods but it’s just the portion sizes and my absolute lack of control when I’m in a stressful or down spot.
Since January, I’ve been super dedicated doing at home workouts which I love and have been trying to really watch what I’ve been eating but was having no luck, the extra weight has been holding on tightly.
I have always carried extra weight on my body since I was a kid and I’m ok with having curves, but it’s just this extra “emotional weight” that I’m finding really hard.
Anyways I’ve been seeing a few online friends having major success with weight watchers,so I decided to give it a try & I’m so happy I did!
It’s truly been an eye opening experience! Things I’ve been eating that I thought were healthy choices, were not as good as I thought and my “emotional dairy free ice cream eating” were basically sabotaging all the hard work I’ve been doing!
It’s been 12 days of being very conscious of what I’m eating, counting points for things other than fruits, veggies, lean proteins, to keep it all in check & I’m happy to say I’m down over 5lbs and I feel satisfied and my inner nutrition nerd is loving all the reading of labels and ingredients!
Anyways, I just wanted to share here because I’ve noticed in the #ww community there are very few dairy free people, so I want to continue sharing my eats, but will be adding some ww info too along the way!
I just pintested all the info, & am using an amazing free app to track points and workouts - it’s called @itrackbites which I highly recommend....(continued in comments)
