Wow! I'm seven weeks into this journey. And boy, this week brightened my spirits!
As you may recall last week I lost only .6 pound. I can't deny that I was disappointed. I mean, I had not lost below 2 pounds in a week yet. I couldn't believe .6 was all it was.
I didn't think I did great this week either so when I saw the scale today I was THRILLED!
I lost another, 3.6 pounds!!
Hallelujah! It really may be a miracle.
If you are a fellow Weight Watcher (really this can apply to anyone), I have one big tip -- plan ahead. There were a few meals I knew I was going to be eating out this past week. I looked up the menu online and checked out their menu. Then I checked out my new favorite website (seriously, check it out, nearly any restaurant you can dream of with their food in Weight Watchers points).
I was able to plan to eat a salad and soup at Red Robin. Trust me, it was difficult. Very difficult. But I did it. Mostly to the encouragement of my co-worker and fellow Weight Watcher (who has lost 44+ pounds!).
I can't guarantee such great weight loss each week, but I hope I can atleast stay around the 2 pounds mark.
My total weight loss since January 5th is 23.2 pounds! And as we discussed tonight at my WW meeting, that would be 92 sticks of butter (4 sticks = a pound).
I hope to post mroe this week and not to only update on Monday nights with my weight loss. I just need to find the time to sit down and write all the posts in my brain.
