We spend a lot of time talking about the "how" of weight loss. In the Weight Watchers meeting rooms we're exposed to new routines and we try to build new, healthy habits. Some of them are easy to adopt - Pack a Snack? Yes, please. If you've been around me for more than a couple of hours you know that I likely have an apple (and probably a granola bar) in my bag, just in case. Slowing down while eating by putting my fork down and sipping water between bites? That one is a little trickier to adopt, though I keep trying.
The topic this week seems to bring things full circle though by asking us to think about the "Why To" side of the question. Why to lose weight... I mean, obviously I want to be healthier than I was before I started Weight Watchers but the truth of the matter is that I'm overall just happier. Was it hard to change my habits? You bet, change IS hard, but it gets easier. But you know what's even harder? Staying the same and being unhappy and missing out on doing things that you want to do.
Considering all of the temptations we'll have in front of us not only this week but in the coming weeks I thought I'd share my list and see what you guys have come up with? Do you keep your list somewhere close by to remind you why you're doing this despite all of the temptation we face?
