Weight Watchers

So I have decided to once again get serious about weight loss.  How many times have you read that here?  Oh gosh lets not even try to count.  I am hoping it will be different this time.  I actually have a plan.  I have a plan!  I joined Weight Watchers two weeks ago.  Their points plan is one that I can maintain for my life.  Not just crash dieting to lose and then turn around and gain it right back and then some.  I love the support and community that comes with being part of Weight Watchers too.  Plus it is highly recommended by every doctor that has spoken to me about weight loss.  Not too mention that I have had a lot of success in the past on the program. 

 I had my first weeks weigh in last Thursday and have lost 6 pounds.  6 pounds in one week!  Awesome.   I know that the high loss is in large part because it was my first week.  I always lose big my first week.  So I am not expecting it to be like that every weigh in.  In all actuality I will be surprised if I haven't gained this week.  Between Easter weekend and it being spring break I haven't followed the plan too close. HA!  But I am off and running! 

So I was looking through my pictures and this one from January is the only full body shot I have.  Yeah I avoid the camera.  

Should I do a weekly update?  Monthly?  Progress photos?  Recipes that have been a success?  I am not sure yet.  But update I will.


  1. It's like you are speaking to me. I've just given up on WW as I was not following the program so paying money for no reason really. January 1, 2012 I gave up soda pop as I knew they were part of my biggest problem. I still haven't had one but managed to replace that issue with Starbucks (you know me and my green tea lemondades!!!)and other sugary substitutes. I walk quite regularly so for me it's about what I'm eating in the day which is obviously too much. I need to eat less and move more. You'd think simple but apparently not for my head. Please keep posting your progress and in particular good recipes. I need all the help I can get. Good luck to you.

    1. I really think that weight loss is mostly emotional. I understand the mechanics of it. I know that it is actually simple but I can't seem to grasp it! I get so upset that Nick can eat whatever he wants and lose weight. I get upset like I am missing out on something. When really I have had enough Big Macs to last a freaking life time! I might need to get a therapist! And that isn't a joke. I am going to take it a meal/snack at a time. That is all I can manage right now. I am excited though! I am excited to experiment with some recipes. I am going to try and make some of our favorites WW friendly. We shall see how they turn out. I need to figure out the exercise thing too. I love it once I start but getting started is a battle to the end.
