Losing Weight Episode #4……Nope changing allegiance to Weight Watchers and staying Motivated!

 Losing Weight Episode #4……Nope changing allegiance to Weight Watchers! I am still motivated and will do this!

So, as you may have gathered not a lot has changed from Episode #3, don’t worry I remain motivated though! I have continued to eat healthily and remain off sugar and kept reducing carbohydrates as much as possible but any change to my weight and measurements is not happening.  In Episode # 2 I reported on a drop in kilos and Episode # 3 included changes to measurements in the positive as well but since then I believe if anything I have put it back on!  This is a very stubborn body with a slow and sluggish metabolism to suit!

So, in consultation with youngest daughter I have agreed to join Weight Watchers which will give me a broader range of foods to pick from, great recipes and the support (online) to help me, before I stomp my foot, softly that is (we do live on an Island surrounded by water, no Tsunami happening here)!  I can’t throw the towel in now, even though there is not a lot of changes to the numbers, they are only that and my motivation, commitment and drive to reduce my size has not wilted nor changed – it is a happening thing even if my old body is too stubborn to realise – my willpower will outlast my body fat mass and my very lack-lustre and un motivated metabolism!! Losing Weight Episode #4 Keep Calm

After all I am a grown woman and can’t rely on youngest daughter to have all my foods & food ideas pre-prepared!  Youngest daughter has been the catalyst and she, like me knows I am motivated, and I have the commitment; any challenge and especially those types that possibly not everyone close to me believes I can maintain, is all I need as my focus and my driving force!  “What, you think it is too hard for me to lose weight?  Well just watch this space, it will happen! and well before I am carted off in my pine box to my final resting place, this is no idle threat, believe me”!



Now before I sign off on my initial weight loss plan and start my new one, which I will continue to document, both the ups and the downs! I will leave you with some interesting information……..a cheat meal or snack is said to be a good thing when dieting, this has been proven by research; it is healthy in keeping you motivated in the fight to lose weight and can result in faster weight loss! Wow! who would have thought?

            Writing for theconversation.com Sydney University research fellow Nick Fuller said ‘break days’ from calorie counting could be the    best way to shed the kilos – and keep them off.

Great to read this research and even better to know you haven’t blown your ‘diet’ by taking ‘breaks or having cheats’, far better to realise it can be beneficial, as we don’t always feel good about ourselves when we ‘fall off the wagon’, so to speak!

So my continued commitment documented and noted, with me publishing regularly and keeping you posted on how I, my body mass and metabolism are ‘working out’, pardon the pun J Just like in the 60’s, man landed on the moon, so will Retro63 shed the weight, lower the body mass indicator and re-energise and motivate my metabolism!
