Eating these extra points is easier said than done for me. I have a real fear of gaining weight and a real fear of failure which ultimately leads to me sabotaging myself. I have been doing weight watchers long enough to know that if you don't eat enough that you WILL gain weight, but theres always that nagging voice inside of me that says "Oh what do they know? Everyone knows that you need to restrict to lose weight. Don't eat those points!" and I don't. I totally convince myself that I am fine.
When I was in high school my health teacher used to have us write little goals for the day on these tiny slips of paper and put them in a basket on his desk. Granted, said teacher was a complete and utter perv who I still cringe at the thought of, I think he might be on to something. Everyday I need to come up with some kind of goal to accomplish by bedtime, and when I do accomplish it, its one victory on the road to fitting into these pants and getting heathy.
Today my goal is to eat my points tonight!
