Guess What I've Been Up To?

Remember back a few weeks ago when I mentioned the dress I'm supposed to wear in my brothers wedding and how uncomfortable I was about it? Well, I think it's exactly what I needed to get my butt in gear and do something about my weight, instead of always complaining about it. Last week I joined Weight Watchers and had my first weigh-in last night. I lost 3 pounds!!!
So what did I change?  Well, I've cut down on my consumption of diet pop.  I used to drink about 4 cans of Diet Pepsi a day.  Now I'm down to 1 or 2, and hopefully I'll be able to cut it down even more over time.  I've upped my water intake to 64 ounces a day, and I'm hoping this week to increase it even more.  I've been on plan most days this week.  I did take a day off the day of K's 2nd birthday party, but I've been pretty good about getting my whole grains and protein, plus I'm eating a ton more fruits and veggies.
I'm pretty encouraged though.  I have a lot more to lose, but I'm focusing on small goals.  The first goal is 5% weight loss.  Next on the list is to get more exercise.  I LOOOVE doing EA Active, but right now our Wii isn't hooked up to the TV and DH keeps forgetting to get a new cord, and I keep forgetting to remind him.  So I told him last night after my meeting, that it's our big goal this week.  Get the darn thing hooked up so I can get moving again!
So are any of you on WW?  Any tips or advice?

Thanks for listening...I'll keep you all updated!

I am on WW and have had success! I joined Sept. 2010 and by Feb of 2011 I lost 15 lbs. I have since stopped and gained it back but am doing it again and lost 5 lbs so far!

You go girl! I don't know anybody who is on weight watchers personally but I've heard a lots of good things. As for tips. I always reminds myself to drink lots of water and to eat fruit instead of candy when I'm craving something sweet. Strawberries, kiwi and pineapple are my go to fruits. =) Keep up the good work =)
