Another Weight-Watchers Update

So last week I was ready to quit. I had had enough. I was constantly obsessing about every little thing that I ate. I felt horrible. My stomach hurt all the time...I mean, it just wasn't worth it to me.

I called about quitting but since I do their monthly pass and they had already done the charge for the month, I could not quit just yet. I mean I could, but I would still be paying. Monday morning I got up and went to the meeting. I figured, I'm paying, I might as well go.


I almost did a happy dance right there on the scale, but there was a line, I felt a little weird, so I just did one in my head. I'm almost at eight pounds and I have to tell you, I don't see it. I mean, everything still fits the same. I wear the same outfit that I did for that very first weigh-in so that I'm consistent and it still fits the same! Well, the pants may be a little looser but not that much. When I lose two more pounds I will hit 5% of my goal and get a special star. Yeah!

So I'm gonna stick it out for a little bit longer. I am exercising. I didn't do it consistently last week and ended up doing a 3 hour workout in one day and believe me, my body complained BIG TIME. Note to self: spread out the workouts - you're not as young and bendy as you used to be!

I'm off to find the Advil now...

Hey ~ Any small amount is a Win!! One day at a time - keep up the good work! Have a beautiful day!

Awesome job! 3 hours in one day? I'd of had to stay in bed the next day. I just started weight watchers...sort of. A friend sent me all her materials and I'm keeping track of points, I just don't have to weigh in. It's humiliating enough to do the Wii weigh-in and watch my Mii blimp up.

Keep up the good work!

Yeah!! Congratulations to you! It's hard to lose weight, but any pounds lost feels awesome. Here's to you and losing even more. :o)

That's SUPER! 4.5 lbs. in a week is really good. You should be proud. I have some extra pounds, can you lose them for me?

Yay on seeing progress! But PLEASE, no more 3-hour workouts! I'm an exercise fanatic (I even have an exercise DVD review website), and I wouldn't torture my body like that! I never do more than an hour at once, and if I want to do a second workout later, I'll do yoga, or if the first workout was purely cardio, Pilates. But seriously, you'll burn yourself out if you do too much, and you won't appreciate the joy of having exercise make you feel so great physically. Which it does if you do it consistently, and sanely.
