Tracking my meals and counting all the Weight Watchers Points is a must. I don't think there will ever come a day that I will no longer need to track what I eat.
The next big thing that helped me get back to normal was preparation. Having the right kinds of food available makes it a lot easier to make better choices. Stocking up on My Fit Foods meals is a big help. My Fit Foods enables me to have breakfast and lunches available at my office. (If you haven’t checked our My Fit Foods there is a link on my blog.) Michele and I did a better job of preparing evening meals in advance so that neither one of us had to spend too much time cooking.
I still feel a sense of lost time because I have to work to get back to a previous weight level. But I have successfully lost back half the weight I gained during my five week slip.
That is all part of being aware and getting back to normal.
