so I drank the orange juice

I've been doing the Weight Watchers for 2 weeks and 3 days now.

It's going well. I have been able to stay within my points target and I'm not walking around in a state of hunger.

I think I can do this. Like, forever.

It's true what they say. Planning is key. I am improving on the planning part. And I am praying, because I know I can't do it alone.

Today was a challenging day. Ste was sick and I stayed home with him. There was excessive sleeping, weird eating times, and an emotional visit with an aunt.

Still, when evening came, I had plenty of points left for Taco Soup with baked tortilla chips and light cheese and a Weight Watchers treat for dessert. Nice.

Then I streamed the latest episode of Parenthood. {Love that show. Cry. Every.Single.Episode!}Anyways, there was a commercial for orange juice. And that was it. I had to have orange juice. Delicious, cold orange juice. BUT... no points!

I ignored it for a while. And then I remembered that I'm not dieting. I'm changing habits. For life. I'm not always going to be able to stay within a points parameter. I don't live in a vacuum of perfect structure and laid out meals from here to eternity.

Besides, drinking orange isn't what made me fat.

So I drank the orange juice.

And I'm ok with it.

[week 2 weigh in: total of 8.4 lbs lost.]
