Breaking down activity goals into small, doable steps can increase the likelihood that we'll start to be active, and keep it up.

A letter to you from our General Manager


Dear WW Philadelphia Member,


If you’re reading this, it can probably be assumed you have not always been in your best physical condition. I know that is true for me.


So many things get in our way of having a more active lifestyle. Family, work, friends, and responsibilities but most of all ourselves.


The reason we get in our own way is the fear of failure. We are afraid to add one more failure to the list of perceived failures we have counted through our lifetimes. Yes, we get in our own way in our weight loss efforts. Feeding ourselves unsupportive self-talk about eating a higher calorie food or taking a slightly larger portion. The same is true about our attempts to get more active.


During my mission to find activity that works for me, I failed at a lot of them. So many things look fun and when I tried them in real time, they required a sense of timing or rhythm that I just do not possess. I’m good at things that take physical strength and good hand/eye coordination, I'm bad at things that require dance steps. Really bad. Really, really bad.


Finding what is right for you and then doing it consistently enough to build it into a healthy life habit is a process. There will be some failed attempts, but perseverance will show you how amazing your body really is. And, get this: once you get into the groove of whatever you discovered was your favorite, exercise is as hard a habit to break as it is to start! Fact!


When Members ask me about eating their Activity Points, I ask, “Are you exercising for a faster weight loss or a body that is more fit?” Activity (exercise) isn’t the solution to weight loss. Very few people ever exercise enough to earn the Points for the doughnuts BUT exercise has been shown repeatedly to be key to maintaining weight loss, and not losing muscle tone as you lose weight.


Access to more activities is available everywhere you are and every place you go. Walking around instead of sitting during a commercial, parking the car in the furthest corner from the door, taking the stairs instead of the elevator, there’s always an opportunity for more movement.


Getting active is another one of those skills we need to break down into small manageable goals and just get started.


Weight Watchers Workshops are a place where Members share ideas about activity and sometimes, we even find an activity buddy. Workshops are an easy place to laugh about our failed attempts and applaud our victories, no matter how small.


Real story: There was a time I felt particularly challenged by myself to get more active. I began searching Marketplace for good quality exercise equipment. One day, I saw an "Exercise Couch" for sale. I got a little excited and then realized is said "Exercise Coach." Good grief!


Have a great week,

Deb Wright

P.S. On Memorial Day, Monday, May 29th, let's take a moment to remember and honor those who have given their all for our freedom.

Regular physical activity is one of the most important things you can do for your health. If you’re ready to get the immediate benefits of better sleep, reduced anxiety, and lower blood pressure, here are 6 ways to get started:

Item 1

  • Start slowly and work your

way up to more time or more challenging activities. Start with a simple stretch workout. Feel good? Try yoga next! All good!

Item 2

  • Look for ways to reduce

time sitting and increase time moving. For example, make it a tradition to walk before or after dinner.

Item 3

  • Set aside specific times to

make physical activity part of your daily or weekly routine. Go it alone or meet up with a partner–you'll encourage each other to up your pace when your body tells you it's ready.



Item 4

  • Start getting other couples

involved in activities you enjoy. Invite them to a round of golf, a game of pickleball, (THE RAGE!) even outdoor ping-pong. For health, motivation, and FUN!



Item 5

  • Make activities with your

friends fun! Invite your bestie over for a morning swim instead of trying out that new place with the great brunch menu!



Item 6

  • Use your WW app to help

you to be be physically active and to put some variety in your activity routine. Keeping track might incentivize you!

Activity


Jerry Seinfeld said, "There's nothing easier to do than not work out." Many of us feel the same way! The trick is making fitness fun–something you enjoy. You'll be surprised how well you feel! And a sense of wellness, too!

Mindset

Mohammad Ali said, “I hated every minute of training, but my mind said, don’t quit, suffer now and live the rest of your life as champion;

the will must be stronger than the skill!" What's in your mind controls your body.

Sleep

Leonardo de Vinci said, "A well spent day brings healthy sleep."

Why is sleep so essential?

Healthy sleep allows the body to boost immunity, reduce stress, manage weight, and reduce the risk of chronic diseases.

Food

Hippocrates said, “Let food be thy medicine, thy medicine shall be thy food.”
