What's your SUPERPOWER?

Get to know your strengths-they can help you lose!
When we discussed this in the meeting room, it was the week I was in a major funk.  It was the day I almost quit.  I didn't pick much up that day in the meeting room because I was too deep inside my own head to hear it.  But now that I've gone back to my weekly in a much better frame of mind, I've put some thought into it.

According to Weight Watchers Weekly, it's the traits - kindness, resilience, generosity, loyalty that make you who you are.  I know, I know you didn't need a WW Weekly to tell you that, but if you're like me, you needed the reminder.  Sometimes all we see are out perceived weaknesses or limitations or we let the words that describe our physical selves define us.  But we are all more than curly hair or straight teeth. 

How this helps is by recognizing our personal strengths and tapping into them it may increase happiness and reduce depression.  In one study, people who identified their uniqu…

Have a Great VACATION!

How to balance fun, food and your plan.
During this meeting we talked about what going on vacation actually means to you and what "problems" it poses for you.  It's all about planning, we all know that.  Planning your vacation is the easy part, how you're going stay on track during that vacation is quite the opposite!  Some of the things that were mentioned in the meeting room was more free time to focus on the plan, some spoke about going off the rails on vacation and others mentioned that maybe the act of going off track isn't necessarily a bad thing.

No matter what the scale says!
Well then! What's funny to me is the timing of this post.  This was the meeting room topic at Weight Watchers for May 28-June 3, HOWEVER, I need this today!  I am taking this mornings weigh in to heart and I'm taking it hard.  I know that if I go back and have a good look at what went down last week with food I would be able to recognize it right away.  I've been hiding under the belief that you can run from the scale (working out, then validating your food) and I also know deep down that you cant do that.
Last week I posted on my Facebook page a video of two friends reading their lists of horrible things they have said to themselves about their body and body image.  These friend then had to read each the lists out loud and direct them to each other.  It was hard to watch because I know how guilty I am of this.   We all know we are our own worst enemies when it comes to the way we perceive ourselves.  Some days are better than others when I'…
