Theresa Timmons: Joining Weight Watchers leads to healthy life change

(Continued)

Now I am accountable. To the other members, the scales, and myself. Especially myself. I say to myself, “Put your hands where you can see them, and step away from the Pop Tarts.”

I am learning that even with good food, portion size matters. When I found out that a 3-ounce serving of meat is probably about the size of the palm, I thought I was one lucky duck because I have enormous paws. But a serving is a serving, so I weigh things until I get a better eye for it.

While I have finally stopped complaining about the generous amount of points my fellow Weight Watcher and boss Mark has allotted, I have become a hoarder of my own meager daily point allowance. I don’t use the points I earn with exercise - I greedily save them in a my non-interest bearing point account, just in case I need them for a bad food I simply can’t resist.

So far I’ve been able to resist. All those extra and earned points have been wasted, as they disappear at the end of a WW week.

I’m losing weight and making some new friends. I will keep you posted. In the meantime, there is an apple in the refrigerator calling my name.
