Non-Scale Victories 05/29/14

Linking up with KTJ and Samantha for another non-scale victory!

I was thirteen years old, a seventh grader at the big bad middle school. I hadn’t learned that having curly hair isn’t so bad…and I certainly hadn’t learned the value of leave-in conditioner.

I was rotating five different t-shirts to wear to school. This was one of them.

Those were the shirts that I felt the thinnest in, the ones that covered up my stomach.

With my mom, I decided to do something about it. Weight Watchers allowed kids (13+) to sign up with a doctor’s note, so that’s what I did. I had no idea what it was or how it was supposed to work. I only knew that it was supposed to make me lose weight. They gave me this little booklet for me to write down my food, and I went to a few meetings after weighing in. I even lost a little bit of weight, mostly because I didn’t want to write anything bad down in my little booklet. That booklet got old pretty fast, and we soon stopped going to weigh-ins and meetings. I gained that little amount of weight back…and then some.

Nine years later, and those two girls aren’t so very different.

I’ve decided to start Weight Watchers again.

You may be wondering why I’m calling this a non-scale victory. I’m finally taking control of my eating, and I think Weight Watchers will give me the tools to do that. It will allow me a little bit more freedom and flexibility with my food while still making healthy choices.

We’ll see how well it works for the open house this weekend. I can tell you from experience, those cupcakes are fantastic.

Believe me, there will be pictures.

It’s almost Friday!
