It's Not A Diet....

"It's not a diet, it's a lifestyle change"

That blip has been on my sidebar for ions......I just removed it.

Guess what?  It is a diet.  The diet shouldn't be your lifestyle change.  The things you learn from the diet is the lifestyle change.

With Weight Watchers the diet is points plus.  The lifestyle change is all the other things you learn with it.

PointsPlus is just a tool used to help you lose the weight.  All the other things are the tools to help you maintain for a lifetime.

You know the:  portion control, tracking what you are eating, being more active, making the healthy choices.  That's what you need to continue for a lifetime.  I wish I'd of learned that sooner.

Today went rather well.  It was beautiful out here so CC and I did some yard sales, thrift stores and consignment shops.  I really racked up the steps on my fitbit, which helped with the food choices.

When I'm out and about, I never know where we will end up eating and that makes planning meals ahead hard.  We ate at a local diner for breakfast where I had an omelet and toast.  Lunch was at another locally owned restaurant where I dined on a belgium waffle topped with bananas and maple syrup.  Hubby and I did a local diner for dinner, which was 1/2 a club sandwich and 1/2 an order of french fries.  Not great choices, but with all the steps I did I still have tons of calories left over.  They won't get used though, I'm full and almost ready for bed!

If I can control eating at my parent's house tomorrow - I know I'll be headed in the right direction!
