When I actually joined Weight Watchers last week, I weighed more than I thought I did. It really shouldn't have been too much of a shocker, since I had practically gorged myself for the the month of December on anything sweet that I could get my hands on.
Starting weight: 267.4
But I seem to have gotten off to a super, tremendous, great start, and it's definitely due to the change in commitment. It's about time to lose some weight, dag-gone-it!
The first WW meeting topic was tracking. The key really is tracking, keeping up with the food you are or have eaten. It's basically keeping a food journal, whether you're doing the WW style and including points, or you're just being more accountable to yourself and your body because it's written right there in front of you. You own it.
So I did a fabulous job of eating my daily points and weekly points and writing everything down, either planning meals ahead of time and sticking with them or including a few snacks here and there.
This week's weight: 257
Yes, people, you read that right! I lost 10.4 pounds this past week! Boo-ya! Now that's motivation to stick with the program.
Ice Cream of the Day: Starbucks Hot Chocolate ice cream (1/2 cup = 240 calories and 13 grams of fat OR 6 points on WW)
