I know it probably sounds bizarre, but I actually look forward to being weighed on Thursday evenings. This week was a little crazy. I didn't get the week off to a very good start. It seems like we ate out a couple of times over the weekend. I did pretty good eating out, except I did munch on a few appetizers, so I knew I probably went over my points. Then, I got sick, and I wasn't able to eat much at all for a couple of days. I did lose 4 3/4 lbs. this week. This brings my total weight loss to exactly 20 lbs. so far. I started January 6th, and it's hard to believe that I have lost 20 lbs. in essentially a month. When my sister asked me if I wanted to join Weight Watchers with her (gotta love it when someone asks you that - then you really know you are chubby - Ha!), I was very skeptical. You have to eat a certain amount or it doesn't work. I never found that I ate a lot before. I just discovered through this process I was totally eating the wrong things...too much processed foods. With WW, you keep a journal so you know exactly what you are eating. This has helping me so much! Now, I am eating fruits and vegetables, more whole foods, and healthy snacks. I am eating my points allowed, and not feeling all that deprived. There have been a few times I've been hungry and grouchy, but if I have a real craving, I have given in and I don't think my weight loss has suffered that much. It has really helped having to be accountable to others: my mom, my sister, Vicki, and even knowing I have committed myself to blogging my progress for all in blogland to see. Weight Watchers does work! As my sister says, "You're a believer now!" I have a long way to go...I'm thinking about 35 more lbs. Thank you, sweet sister, for asking me to do this. I'm glad we are on this journey together. She lost 3 lbs. this week by the way. I still haven't started exercising. I am making that a priority this week. Here's to week seven!
