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!
