Weight Loss Journey Day 15

Weight Loss Journey Day 15-1How many times have we all started on a diet, only to let it go by the wayside a few weeks later? 

I know I’ve done this myself, too many times to count.

I also started my Facebook Live videos and I decided I would make myself accountable on my blog and on Facebook every day with my videos.  

You can catch my Facebook Live videos on my YouTube channel here >>> Weight Loss Journey – Keep Me Accountable and also on my Facebook Fan Page Monna Ellithorpe / Author & Writer

I’ve only missed about two days of the videos but I haven’t missed any days in keeping my points iin check using Weight Watchers online.

I have found out that I don’t have what you would call an addictive personality. What I have is a stubborn personality. So what does this mean? It means I wasn’t hooked on smoking and didn’t have any kind of withdrawal symptoms; I didn’t want to quit. I enjoyed it.

The day I decided to give up smoking I had the determined mindset, this is what I wanted to do and I had no problem.

I’m guessing the weight loss is about the same way.

1.) I didn’t realize how much weight I had put on.

2.) Once my stress levels at home lessened, I didn’t feel the need to eat for comfort or stubbornness.

Of course, my daughter worried about my health and I was beginning to worry about it myself. I was having a hard time breathing and walking or doing much of anything.

Along with these reasons and the fact that I want to weigh less for my daughter’s wedding in August 2017, I started a diet on my own.

I was doing okay but not anything to brag about because I wasn’t being strict on myself. My daughter saw I was having problems with it and for Mother’s Day (early present) she signed me up for the online Weight Watchers program.

I’m on Day 15 and down 6 pounds on Weight Watchers (3 pounds a week) and I lost 3-1/2 pounds on my own in a month. So the Weight Watchers program we know does work much better. I’m down a total of 9-1/2 pounds.

I’m a computer geek and being able to record everything online by typing in the name of what I’m eating is so easy. Weight Watchers shows the graphs with my weight decline (which I don’t want you to see yet) and also shows the blue dots on the days that I have stayed within my points range. This keeps me inspired to continue do this.

Weight Loss Journey Day 15

As you can see by the red arrow, on April 13th, I didn’t get a blue dot. It wasn’t because I went over my points. Truth; I could not eat anymore food to use up my points. I had 7 points left over that day.

I would like to show you some more screen shots from the inside of my Weight Watchers account. But I don’t think they would appreciate that.

You can take a look around and read up on Weight Watchers (Non Aff.)

They do have a 50% off special which I just found out about but it ends tomorrow, Saturday April 22, 2017 at 11:59 pm EST.

Ebates (Aff.) is offering $5.00 back when you buy from Weight Watchers. I am an affiliate of Ebates, so I would receive compensation if you click on my link to Ebates.

Read about my journey from the beginning Weight Loss Journey.  It’s only been two weeks but it’s still been a “Journey” and surprisingly a “fun” one. 

I don’t think I’ve mentioned anything about the elliptical bike that I bought to help me along this journey. I can’t do too much on it yet until I lose a little more weight. But I do try to increase the amount of exercise I do each day. Its called an Exerpeutic Aero Air Elliptical.  I’ll be doing a full review on this in a day or two. 

These are a few other things that are recommended by Weight Watchers to help with your weight loss program.

The longer I am on this weight loss journey, the more time I will have to do complete reviews of the products I try.  I can tell you right now, the cookbooks, you’ll have to judge for yourself because “I don’t cook.”

Maybe someone you know is struggling to lose weight or maybe you, yourself have problems sticking to a diet. I urge you to check out this program.  If you have any questions, put them in the comments section or contact me and I’d be happy to answer them for you.

Was I able to help you out in any way?  If you enjoyed this post and found great value, please take a moment and share…..Thank you
