Week 3 Begins

Is it weird that I lost one pound from one day to the next? I'm guessing it's water weight, but I could swear I weighed 180 Wednesday morning, and then I weighed 179 this morning. Since I have to weigh myself once a week, every Wednesday for me, I chose to keep my weight at 180 and not take off that pound.

I'm not feeling hungry in between meals, but staying within my daily points allowance while attending theme dinners is making it tough. Last night was our bi-weekly theme dinner, and while I ate small portions, I still went over my point limit - by LOTS! 30 points lots! Ugh!

Weight Watchers is watching me.

Weight Watchers is Watching - Weeks 1 and 2

"What!?" was my reaction when I looked at the scale last summer. I'd reached an all time high of 185 lbs. Never in my 41 years on this Earth had I weighed that much. I feel no shame in sharing this number since hardly anyone reads this blog.

I didn't go to a Weight Watchers place to sign up, instead, I did it online. Isn't that how you do things nowadays? It was easy, and you get a deal on the first three months. You don't have to attend the meetings for the weekly "weigh-ins", but you can do it yourself. I see how you can find help in others' support, but I don't think I can handle that right now.Instead I consult some co-workers who are in this too.

I weighed myself at the end of week one, and I lost 1.7 lbs. Not much, but it's a step forward. I keep track of those silly points, but keeping track and knowing you only have so many allotted per day keeps your hunger in between meals in check. Since I lost almost two pounds, my total points were reduced from 38 to 37. Suuuuuuucks!!!

Overall, it's interesting because you can still eat things you enjoy, but you just have to watch your portions. It's all in the portions and exercise.

OK, so hopefully - keep your fingers crossed - I'll be able to update you on my progress as I go through this. ( Wrong attitude? Too soon? Eh!)
