Week One of Weight Watchers!

Last week I had a goal of going to the gym three times. I didn’t do it. BUT I joined weight watchers a week ago, on Wednesday. The first couple days were tough, I was STARVING and trust me, I was one big whiny baby. And I kept counting points and journaling my food. Monday was a lunch out at work, for a birthday. I had enchilada soup and my beloved french fries, and counted the points for them. Even with that fatty lunch out, I stayed within my points all week long! I drank a liter of water every day and worked on getting all my fruits, veggies, dairy and grains in. I didn’t make it, but keeping that in mind kept me eating healthier. I have discovered fat free sour cream and weight watchers string cheese are my friends.

Yesterday when I got to work I realized I had on a different pair of jeans than I thought. I stuck my hand in the pocket for something and was expecting the short pocket that my newest (largest) jeans had, but it was a regular pocket. I went to the bathroom and checked because I could not believe it; the jeans I realized I had on should have been tighter and I should have been having to tug them up all day because they were tight and have some stretch material, so they keep inching down. I could not believe that after just a few days I was already seeing a change in how my clothes fit. And was it my imagination or was my face losing some of that recent extra extra roundness?

Today was Day 7 of the first week on Weight Watchers. You weigh in every week for your official weight and (drum roll please) I lost 5.6 lbs in my first week!!! WHOO HOO! It was NOT my imagination! Maybe it was water weight, I don’t know, but I am happy happy happy and motivated motivated motivated! I canNOT wait until next week.
