Earlier this year, I shared my hard parts.
1. It’s hard to separate hunger from boredom. 10:00 PM snacking is “a thing”.
2. It’s hard to say no to leftover cheesecake.
3. It’s hard to fit in exercise when I work 14-hour days.
4. It’s hard to stay on track when eating out and cooking for picky eaters.
5. It’s hard to eat well without feeling completely and utterly deprived of delicious food.
And then, I decided to get help with my hard parts.
It’s been two months since I joined Weight Watchers. And I won’t keep you in suspense; I’m proud to announce that I’ve lost 16 pounds! And I did it while eating the foods I love, sharing meals with friends and family, and most importantly, making healthful choices that have changed the way I feel about food, nutrition and hunger.
And if I’m going to post a “big reveal” photo – I may as well be standing next to a celebrity! Ta-da!But the key to my weight loss success? When I needed help, I asked for it.
I asked for help just a few days into the program, when I found it difficult to balance my portion sizes, especially at dinner.
I asked for help when I found myself fearing food, a complex emotional state that happens to almost every dieter when he/she begins to see the results of their regime.
I even asked for help while I was on vacation! That’s right – during our recent family adventure at Walt Disney World, I found myself confronted with limitless food choices… and lacking the strength to make the right ones.
And when I asked for help, whether it was 11:00am in the morning from my bedroom, or 11:00pm at night from a hotel room in Florida, there was always a Weight Watchers Certified Coach available to answer my questions and offer advice.
Every Weight Watchers subscription now includes access to a live coach anytime, anywhere and for any reason with new 24/7 Expert Chat. Coaches who have successfully lost weight on Weight Watchers are available to subscribers through 24/7 Expert Chat for instant advice on how to get started, get back on track, and stay motivated. This new feature is available to all Weight Watchers subscribers through online and mobile chat, 24 hours per day, seven day a week!
In my experience, I was able to access a coach instantaneously each time, although I have read reviews of members having to wait (gasp!) from 30 seconds to just under a minute during peak daytime hours. The coaches were knowledgeable, VERY non-judgy, and of course, available whenever I needed someone to chat with.
However, if I had to underscore one experience, it was during my family vacation three weeks ago. Struggling with making better food choices, and faced with dipping into my weekly PointsPlus allotment, I sought advice about how I could manage my weight while enjoying my time away. And the coach’s advice? ENJOY. Enjoy myself. The program would keep me on track, and the extra points would allow me to indulge for a few days. And they did.
Today, I’m happy with my weight. But more importantly, I’m happy with the choices I’ve made, which began when I joined Weight Watchers.
