stupid all or nothing ideas
Sunday, January 30, 2011
I am such an all or nothing person. I've been half-heartedly doing Weight Watchers. Since they have changed their program, I can no longer figure out their point system with just my regular calculator.
Anyway, I've been paying for 2 programs - Calorie King and WW. WW is more visually appealing, but CK is so much less expensive. I'm locked into a great rate, that I can keep ($57 a year). I'm paying 4x that amount with WW.
The most frustrating thing about this is that I just haven't been keeping it up. And then when I go over on my points, I tend to just blow off the whole week. This keeps repeating itself, and I keep losing the same 5 lbs over and over. I haven't gained anymore, just not really going anywhere.
So to make my life simple again, I cancelled WW. I'm going to stick wtih plain old calorie counting (just like Spark People diet does). Nothing complicated.
I need simplicity in my life - not a bunch of tools that I won't use! Plus I feel guilty about the money I put into something I'm not using correctly.
Back to simple calorie counting, weighing myself weekly and measuring, and trying to get in 3-5 workouts a week.
That is all - no more. I'm tired of "dieting" taking up too much of my time, and stressing about it.
