When You Hit A Bump In The Road On Weight Watchers

*This post contains amazon affiliate links*

Last week was an interesting week on my Weight Watchers Weight Loss Journey. I guess in a way I hit a bit of a bump in the road. I struggled for three days to count the points I was eating. I know from past experience that this is has been my biggest hurdle in the past, missing a few days and then struggling to get back on track.

So what happened? Well I was so excited having lost 2 pounds last week and I was ready to go. We bought the right foods in (which was crucial) but I just felt so unwell I spent a few days in bed and kind of lost my focus. I didn’t track the foods I ate, rested and slept and thought I’m doing okay. In fact I was doing okay because I was making the same healthy choices I had made in the previous weeks but you still need to track what you eat or you can end up eating a lot more than you think.

So after a long weekend of illness I decided to get back on track and count perfectly. I really tried hard until my husband brought a box of cadburys cream eggs and I lost the willpower eating two in one night. Although these were pointed, I could have eaten much better and healthier options and kind of wish I’d only had one afterwards.

Despite this I kept on going and my husband took me to my meeting on Thusrday. I was unwell so turned up a little late, when the weighing in was ending and then stayed for the meeting. So I was only there for about 30 minutes but it was good and got me thinking about how I will manage over Mother’s Day and the fact I need to plan what I eat when I go to London next week to see my specialist.

Yes…I am going to London for a day, I will see my Endocrinologist and I am also going to watch a movie as part of a blog collaboration and I am excited. I will reveal more about that next week. So I do feel like I hit a bump in the road and for me that is taking the time to track and write down what I eat.

The good news is last time I did Weight Watchers about 5 years ago, when I failed to track I also started making bad choices. This time when I failed to track I stuck to healthy options and free foods such as protein, chicken, beans and veg and so I was able to still lose weight.

I lost half a pound and although it’s not as much as I’d like, I am 9 pounds less now after six weeks.

I have been online looking at recipe books which might help me to create a list of go to “healthy” meals. I think the key for me is to make these dishes into a lifestyle. For example if my family naturally eats, low point, healthy meals then eventually this will be a pattern for life and we won’t fall back into bad habits. Not buying in naughty food is really helping or buying treats for my family which I don not like. I think chocolate is a weakness and need to try hard to stay away from this. I am trying to find sweet and tasty low point alternatives as I do have a sweet tooth. In fact Sylvia and I have been experimenting and we have made the most delicious pancake recipe with almond milk. I am hoping to create a recipe for this on the blog.

In the meantime I will be looking at what is out there and making my own list of wholesome meals. I am thinking of purchasing a recipe binder to write up and collect my favourite low point recipes. I really think this can be a lifestyle change rather than a diet but it’s about finding the right meals which we can enjoy over and over and buying in the right foods. I am trying hard and think if I could exercise more it would help but I simply can’t. I am not well enough at this point in time.

I know my time in London is going to be tricky and I need to be extra careful with the choices I make but I can do this. I look forward to sharing my progress of week seven next week. Until then thanks for following my journey and let me know if you have any favourite recipes I could try out?

  1. I think you have a great strategy! For me, to help myself to get motivated about anything, I like to think of it as something exciting, like an adventure. Just keep your focus on all the amazing things that are going to happen and all of the positive changes that will come along the way, and it becomes fun!

    1. Thanks Michelle. I am trying really hard and if I just lose half a pound each week, I could potentially be 25 pound slighter in less than a year. Hopefully more!
