Count Your Blessings My Challenge To You WW

Happy New Year!!!

Our fam was back together in IL for Christmas! Wishing you a blessed 2020!! ~Chase, Oakley, Terra, Darin, Ivy and Cole

🎉🎊🎉🎊🎉🎊So here we are…the first day of a new year and a new decade🎉🎊🎉🎊🎉

If you’re anything like me, the scale can be a scary thing right now. After all the parties, traveling, cookie baking and eating, meals out with friends and family celebrating settles down, despite our best efforts, most of us have been consuming more than we normally do. It’s like that for everyone, so let’s NOT dwell!

After the Thanksgiving holiday, I had several members quite upset about what they considered large, quick weight gains. We’ve all been there. Losing a true 5 pounds takes most of us about a month to do yet the scale can go up 5 pounds after just a few days of “holiday cheer”. After talking through it, all of them committed to getting back to the routine that was working for them pre-Thanksgiving. Talking about the gain got it out in the open. Realizing they were not alone disarmed a great deal of the negative emotion they had been feeling. The weight gains that seemed so huge to each one of them, were suddenly not quite as dramatic. So guess what happened the following week? All of them lost the majority of the weight they gained in just one week. A couple of them lost more than they had gained, giving them a net LOSS for the month of November.

Why am I telling you this? Because the most important thing for me, for you, for anyone of us to do is resist the urge to feel bad about a weight gain. Let’s start the new year off feeling energized and ready for a fresh start! What we think about, we bring about. Dwelling on a holiday weight gain can leave us feeling defeated, frustrated and sometimes even sad. Not the best recipe for inspiration moving forward into 2020. Getting right back to a healthy routine is the next step and it works! Let’s feel good about it!

I couldn’t be more delighted about the new MyWW program!! With 3 different eating plans to choose from, we each choose the plan that’s right for us. All are based in science and all 3 are proven to make weight loss easier. I’m so glad to be off the roller coaster of deprivation and the unlivable crash dieting fads out there. Who wants to go into the new year feeling restricted and punished for the celebrations we were blessed enough to be a part of in December? Not me and I’m guessing not you! It’s empowering to know there is a WW food plan💜💚💙 for each of us that allows us stay true to our goals and still live a life we love. Choosing a plan that we can realistically adapt to our lives day in and day out, puts us in control. Not just on the weekdays or the for meals we eat at home….but a true lifestyle. It’s not a diet…it’s a new normal.

Looking at all 3 plans and really thinking about which one you can mould to fit you best is an exciting way to start 2020. I’ve committed to taking the time to come up with ways to customize my plan fit what I’ve got going on in the new year. All three plans are proven to work and are equally effective, so choose the one that means freedom and flexibility to you. Purple has my name all over it and I’m excited to keep working towards making it my own💜 and helping you do the same with the plan you choose!

Green💚, Purple💜 or Blue💙….which plan are YOU? What would YOU like to have happen in this brand new year? Leave a comment below!! I’m anxious to hear which plan you’re on (or considering) and what you like about it!

    Still following you. We are now in a retirement home in Yorkville, IL. Had been in Wisconsin, but now moved in a retirement apartment. Let me tell you…you need to be in your 80’s and you really stop eating a lot of food. Yes, I am in my 120’s now. To think of how much I weighed and now I just eat so little. BUT I still like my fruit!! Weight is about 125-127.

    What made you move to California?

      Great to hear from you, my dear Marie!!! So glad you’re still receiving my emails! We moved b/c Darin was offered a job opportunity in Fresno, CA that he couldn’t pass up. He came out in May 2018 and I joined him in Aug 2019, as soon as my youngest left for college. It’s been a great adventure!! We love it here☀️ Stay in touch

    I miss you but I feel like we are sitting in my office together and you are giving me my weekly “pep-talk” when I read these posts! I am committed to losing 3 pounds a month for this year, so I am excited about the new plan! The blue plan seems best for me, and who knows…. I am likely going to inadvertently serve this plan up to my other family members!!
    As always, thanks for the inspiration!! XO

    Thank you, Terra for this right on target message. Today is a new day and I can gear up to once again be on target and feel much better on my Blue plan. Haven’ t investigated the purple plan, as yet, but plan on doing so, as purple is my favorite color (Lol). Whatever plan I do it does make me feel better being in control and finding ways to eat my fruits and vegetables along with the protein to move in the right direction. My monthly goals are 5 lbs which I feel is doable but the holidays have jolted me back a few pounds but I do know I can take them off.
    Once again, thank you for inspiring me to continue this journey of 1000 steps … Hugs, Rosalie
