I have a confession to make.
I haven’t weighed myself in two months, because I know what the scale’s going to say. I’ve put on enough weight that my work clothes are tight in the thighs and stomach, and I’m down to one pair of jeans that just sort of fit. Yet I sit here eating chocolate as I type this. (It’s organic dark chocolate, but chocolate nonetheless.)
I don’t know what it is that’s making me gain weight. No, that’s not true. I do know. I just am choosing not to do anything about it and don’t know why. Because it’s too hard? Because it’s annoying and frustrating that I can’t just eat food without thinking about how fattening it might be? I’ve made some good changes to the foods I eat (less processed, more whole foods) but I think QUANTITY is an issue. And when I joined Weight Watchers it helped me realize that what I thought was a serving, was actually two, or even three.
So this is my public acknowledgement that I will be more cognizant of the size of my portions and stop when I’m comfortable, not full. And I WON’T EAT WHEN I’M NOT HUNGRY. Period.
The focus of this week’s features are healthier cookies. These all sound great and have better-for-you ingredients. If you’re gonna eat cookies, might as well make ‘em healthy(ish), right?
And now, show me whatcha got, people. The rules are simple:
