Winning the food wars

During February of last year, I was jubilant.

I had survived a Christmas filled with rich chocolates and pecan pie, mashed potatoes with gravy and pine-nut dressing. I had gained a few pounds, but, by February, the scales indicated that I weighed exactly what I wanted to weigh. Plus, I felt great.

After years on Weight Watchers, I was sure that I finally had won my own personal war with food.

Unfortunately, the news is not so good this year. I gained 10 pounds during the Christmas holidays, lost it and then gained it back. Then, I lost most of what I had gained back and gained it back again.

I’m back on the on-the-diet, off-the-diet cycle.

What’s the solution?

Switch gears, and think positively.

Remember that I am in control of what I put in my mouth. Most important, remember that I have won this battle before. I can do it again.

Set a realistic goal. My son Jay graduates from college in May. I want to be healthy and look good at his graduation.

Get back on track. I have done Weight Watchers for years now. I know exactly what I need to do. I just need to do it.

Remind myself that it’s a difficult battle—but the fight is worth the effort. I am determined, committed to taking good care of myself and being healthy.

–Joy
