Healthy Grocery Haul: I Started Weight Watchers

Hey, yall! Thanks for stopping by today! I wanted to share some exciting news with you all… I was a little hesitant at first, but if I am going to make this lifestyle change I need to not only be honest with myself, but with my friends and family as well.

I started weight watchers – again.

I’ve done WW before, a couple of years ago for about a month or two and I was so happy with myself because, when done the right way it really does help! It keeps me accountable and helps me be more aware of the food choices I make, while also encouraging me to make better ones! & they community is awesome! But… I fell off the wagon and got lazy and stopped after only a month and a half. I don’t want to do that again. So I am decided the best way to approach it this time around was to be upfront and honest with my friends and family in hopes that you will encourage and motivate me along the way. (And if I can encourage/inspire some of you as well then that’s a BONUS!)

I’m about a week in and already I am feeling so good about myself! I’ve talked to you all before about being comfortable and confident, as you are & to love the skin you’re in! I still 100% agree with that and stand by what I said. This change in lifestyle is for no one else but ME. I love myself. I love my curves and I am happy. But I know I could be better! Are we really living if we aren’t constantly evolving and pushing ourselves to be the BEST we can be? I decided, that I wasn’t. I am not where I want to be and even though I am happy with myself I know I can do better and BE BETTER for MYSELF.

I want to be able to run and keep up with my daughter and not get winded or be too tired to try. (Although sometimes that can’t be helped & can be hard when you have an autoimmune disorder like I do, that just naturally makes you tired.) But I wasn’t doing myself any favors by not ACTIVELY taking care of ME. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, we cannot run on an empty tank. And I can’t expect to keep up with Scarlett if I’m spending my days lounging around doing nothing, when I could be doing something.

So here I am, taking the plunge. I’m changing my lifestyle and being more mindful of what I put in my body, while finding time to get active!

It’s been fun! I’ve learned to tweak recipes I love so that they are healthier. Scarlett loves to “workout” with me & BJ and it’s so cute to see her doing exercises next to me and trying to keep up. Her little eyes are always watching me and I want to be a better example for her.

Thank you all for letting me be a small part of your day. Please say a prayer or two for me and if you have any words of encouragement, they would be most appreciated!
