Day 1November 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.
