Over the past few months, I became more careless about my eating (especially the late-night snacking, which is my biggest weakness). It didn't help that my community workout room, which I depended on for vigorous exercise to supplement my dawgwalking, was down for renovations, Sadly, I gained back the seven pounds I had worked so hard to lose during the spring and summer months.
Rather than waiting for the New Year to work on a correction, I joined Weight Watchers last week. Maybe that seems like the course of martyrdom during the season of cookies and eggnog, but I need a disciplined approach. It doesn't mean you have to forego all holiday goodies, just that you need to keep a close count. You can squirrel away your WW points, and spend some on splurges. I am using the online program for men, as opposed to going to weekly meetings. I respond well to computer-based motivation and have too many meetings already.
I will let you know how it goes. I think I made the right decision starting in mid-Decemebr instead of waiting until New Year's Day.
