Last night I went to my first weigh-in meeting at Weight Watchers. So here's the skinny (Bahahahaha):
~Lost 3.4 lbs
I was very excited to see this and it was more than I anticipated. I tried not to let the total amount of how much I need to lose ruin my happiness at having a loss this week. It's hard to say the least. I'm still focusing on my 5-lbs. I really hope to hit that next week. I get a "star" for my book mark if I do and it'll be nice to have that for motivation.
The first couple of days were rather hard for me and I wasn't really eating the right things so I ended up being hungry some. I also caught myself emotionally eating Friday. I realized it but did it anyway. It's very hard to change long-standing habits.
I did not reach my goal of excercise 3 x week. Ummmmm, let me be honest here.....I didn't even hit one day. I'm going to try very hard to get some walking in this weekend.
I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything. Every food has a "point value" and you just decide how you want to use your points. I had some left over points at the end of my week last night. You're really supposed to use all of your points so I need to work on that. Yesterday was the only day I had "leftovers" so I thought that was pretty good.
So my goals this week:
~reach the 5 lb. loss mark
~Exercise this weekend
~Increase my fruit intake by 1 serving most days (let's be real here-most days)
Anyone else on a weight-loss journey to healthier lives and want to share?
