A Good Start

Well, I went to my Weight Watchers (WW) meeting today after my first week back and it was good news! I lost 1.8 lbs!! A loss is soooo nice right now - it helps me to be motivated to really get going. The WW leader talked about motivation today and I have to say that it really is so important. When you are motivated, you are able to be successful, but when you aren't - it is so difficult. It's a good idea to figure out what your motivation is and if you need to change it! What's your motivation?

Now, I did not do perfectly last week - it was rough. We had unexpected company with unexpected grilling and side dishes and desserts over Memorial Day weekend. I did not track or do well with points through Tuesday (last of the leftovers!). However, since I had gone back to WW, I did make better choices and eat smaller portions. Also, I needed to make a dessert and I chose the cake I just posted because it was lighter than the desserts I usually make. Then from mid-week on I tracked my points though I went over almost every day. And I did Wii Fit a bit a few times during the week. Those changes were enough to cause some weight loss.

I haven't made very good food choices today (I tend to "celebrate" and not track points the day of a weigh-in), but I have done Wii Fit today and I plan to get right back on track tomorrow. I think this is going to be a good week so I'm excited to see if I can beat last week's weight loss!!

I desperately need to go shopping. The weather here is hot now and my summer clothes from last year barely fit. I don't like to buy new bigger clothes, but I've got to wear something cute while I lose weight! I have promised myself that I can go shop only after I lose my first 5 pounds. I want to accomplish that very soon!

I hope you are doing well! I'll post another healthy recipe this week and see what else I can come up with.

Have a great weekend! Don't give up on your weight loss journey - you can do it!!

  1. YEAH you, down a pound+. I'm so proud of you. It always feels good to get back on track and have a loss too. Keep it up this week and celebrate with something other than food, k!

  2. Great job! I weigh in on Saturdays and that is always my blow off day. I don't track... now I don't eat stupid, but I enjoy myself that day with no worries.

    That cake sounds yummy!
