Weight Watchers after ThanksGiving



Stroke Survivors are typically courageous. I had the courage to show up at WW even after a weekend of festivities that clearly went beyond my usual consumption of several days. My longtime friend, Lee, came to St. Bruno for her annual visit to Quebec. This involves much eating out and little home cooking, lots of deserts and sleeping in.

:Clap-Hands: Pat - that is super - and even with the extra eating. You must not have overdone it as you thought you did. Plus the walking helped to burn extra calories.

Dear Pat--I am so tremendously happy for you! From your description of what you consumed during that weekend of delectably groovy repasts (anymore would have been a mediocrity), you ate healthfully and evened out the extra calories w/ exercise.


As you lose weight, you will find one of the benefits of eating healthfully is that your body begins to burn energy more efficiently. I think you have gotten to that point.


I never believed in diets (easy for me to say, I was never overweight) but to enjoy food and eat healthfully. I don't believe in denying yourself desserts which means it does not entitle you to have a dessert every night.


Weight Watchers is a good program and they will help you learn to maintain. Using this program and exercising, you will see you will have a beautiful body you will be proud of. Eventually, you will have to learn and make eating well a life style, not a diet. Keep it going! You're doing great. Take Care. LK
