Weight Watchers Update

Okay, so I finished week two on Weight Watchers and had a wee-bit more success than the first week. Praise the Lord! I went out in the dangerous cold and ice to get to my weigh in and lost three pounds. Yes, three whole pounds. That is WAY better than that lousy half a pound the first week.

So what's changed? Well, I told you that I had been exercising and doing the Walk Away the Pounds thing. I do a three-mile, high intensity walk. I did it five days last week. And you know what's weird? I'm not as hungry. That first week I was ready to start eating the furniture and now, I have it way more under control.

My total weight watchers goal is to lose 40 pounds. And that will put me at the high end of my weight range for my height. I still don't see how that's possible but whatever. Nick is graduating in June - EARLY June - and so as of right now I have about 16 weeks to lose 20 pounds. I would love to lose more than that but I'm being realistic. After seeing how slow this weight is going to come off, I have to have a goal that is within my reach. I have to get up and speak in front of several hundred people and so with 20 pounds off my short, fat body ought to make me feel a little bit better.

Why can't fat be the new thin?

Are you speaking at his graduation? My knees are turning to jello just thinking about getting up in front of a hundred people.

Each parent has to go up with their graduate and present them with their diploma and give a 2 minute speech. EEK!!

Hey, good job! Don't look at how much further you have, just be proud of what you have lost. That is amazing!

I wold love to see a three pound loss in a week. I lost 5 in January and I need to loose 40 pounds too. I started using my WW books from last summer this week to add to my working out. I even bought a heart rate monitor to make sure my workouts were effective and I feel stuck at five pounds. Hopefully my second week on the diet will be better.

I wish fat could be the new thin ;). I have no idea what to do with this c-section belly that I don't think will ever go away. I hate it.
