I found my old Weight Watchers weight record from the first time I followed the program and ... I'm doing a lot better than I thought. I have kept telling myself I am fatter than I was when I left the program a few years ago, but I am not. When I left the program, I weighed 247.6 pounds. When I rejoined the program, I weighed 243.8. The story I've been telling myself -- that I am out of control and just getting fatter and fatter -- is not true. Obviously, it is advisable to lose more weight and increase my fitness levels, but it might also be smart to start telling myself new stories.
Stories that are actually true.
