Anytime is a tough time to start if you are not in the right mindset. I rejoined 6 weeks ago and am looking forward to the changes. I don't know if they will be applicable to me or not since I have a medical condition that requires me to eat low fiber and low fat meals. Many, many foods are not allowed on my eating plan, foods that are high on the desirable list for most people.
In 2001 when I joined up with WW's, I did really well and breezed through the holidays including a 4 pound loss on thanksgiving week. My mind was set, I planned what and how much I would eat and I stuck to it. That is what I plan to do again this year.
My main problem is that I am a compulsive emotional eater. I am really struggling right now due to the fact that my 36 year old daughter and 2 year old grandson have moved back home and it is a huge adjustment for me. Due to my medical condition overeating causes me to feel very nauseated and miserable. I would think that this would be enough to curtail my eating but I still have that desire to eat compulsively, it makes no sense what-so-ever.
I am not giving up.
