Fat Ticker Friday - Week 1

It's Fat Ticker Friday at Baby Tea Leaves with several bloggers talking about their weigh-ins.

I started on Monday and joined WW Online at the same time. I weighed this morning and was shocked to discover that I had lost 2.5 lbs !! Woo-Hoo!! A good start!

I didn't do anything drastic, just watched my points and cut back (I do not like to be deprived of anything, so it's more about moderation for me). I am excited to see what happens this next week.

We were asked what we wanted our legacy to be. First, I want to be a good example of a Christian wife, mother, and servant. I want to honor God in the things I do and do it all joyfully! Part of that is developing healthy eating and exercise habits and passing them along to my family. It's much easier to be joyful when you feel healthy, and you can get so many more things accomplished when you are fit. I pray that the Lord will give me strength and perseverance to continue on my weight-loss journey and help me to be an encouragement to others.

I am so excited for all of you that have lost weight this week, but also happy for those of you that didn't lose or gained and still posted! No matter what the scale says, you have started and you can focus on having a better week next week. Good job everybody!!
