Day 1

November 03, 2011

This morning literally at the crack of dawn, I weighed myself and logged on to Weight Watchers online to join.  Finally a plan put into action.  I felt strongly about "starting" on a Thursday since that is my meeting day, and will be my weigh in day once I go back to meetings.

This morning the scale said 215 pounds... ugh!  I need to lose 40 pounds to get back to my Weight Watchers goal weight of 175 pounds.  I am not happy with myself, but it is done, and I am ready to move on with this next part of my life, and finally fit in my pants again!

I get a lot of points as I'm still breastfeeding part time, so really this should be easy, but I'll be honest - tonight especially I have found myself kind of hungry, but actually scared to eat even though I have points left.  Please don't give me a lecture about this... it is just how I feel.  I know finding foods I feel comfortable with will get easier as I get back into the swing of things.  Right now, I'm so unsure of the points value of so many foods that its hard.  I lost almost all of my weight on the original Points Plan, so getting used to Points Plus values is new to me.  I also have to say that I don't trust Points Plus yet, because I haven't had proved weight loss on it, only maintenance.  Once I see a few losses, I know I'll learn to trust it more, and things will be easier.

So... Day 1 is in the books.  I am proud of myself.

  1. I'm proud of you! You have so much going on in your life right now. It is fantastic that you are able to make yourself a priority while taking care of your family. I didn't breastfeed, but I hear it's amazing for weight loss. :)

  2. Thank you so much for this post and the one prior to this. I've been on the fence about losing the 50 pounds that i gained back over the last couple years. The gain that i had without having a baby. I change my "plans" every other day about whether or not i want to lose the weight or whether I'm just fine the way i am. I get so angry about having this in my head everyday. Thank you so much for your inspiration. I have decided to make this journey too. It's time!
