To make a long story short, I got sick last year – the big C. Two surgeries – one major, followed by 33 rounds of radiation and I actually looked good and was near my goal weight because of nausea brought on by radiation. I was eating very healthy at one point – mainly vegetarian. Bought everything I could organic.
Once treatment was over I was good for a while but then fell off the wagon. Sometimes I actually felt that if I wasn’t going to make it I should enjoy myself and eat what I wanted – life is too short. I knew I had been gaining weight but it hit me when I went on vacation last week and I didn’t have anything to wear. Nothing fit unless it was stretchy. I felt uncomfortable and knew that this couldn’t go on. On the last day of our trip we went to a fancy restaurant where we indulged and I actually felt uncomfortably stuffed. That was when I got that “click” and knew that I was going to go back on an eating plan.
I never canceled my online Weight Watchers subscription so decided to go back on the Points Plus program. I had done well with it and thought the new plan with most fruits and veggies at 0 points was genius. It makes a person who doesn’t go to fruits and vegetables first, like me, think twice. At my vacation home we have an orange tree with the sweetest oranges and I brought some home with me. Had one this morning – the start to my weight loss so I can fit into my clothes again and not be embarrassed.
