The first week of the New Year

I just ended the first week of the New Year. It went pretty smoothly. We started back to work which automatically made me crazy busy and somewhat stressed. It's the good kind of stress though the kind that makes me motivated. I also like being busy, I get bored otherwise.

I went back to Weight Watchers on Tuesday. My starting weight 242 lbs. Now this number embarasses me to no end, I mean how did I let it get this bad. However, I need to keep myself honest so I figure if I put it out there for everyone to know then it might just help me to never be that weight again. Although I was a bit freaked out by my number I left the meeting with a new resolve. I think I truly am ready to lose the weight. My 30th birthday is looming ahead and I don't want to enter my 30's with all this extra me. It's only going to get harder and harder to lose so I figured I should take advantage now. Besides it's only going to bring a host of health issues. I've already had knee surgery at 29 so I think I'd like everything else to stay healthy.

I've done really well this week with tracking my points and eating the right things. The best part is that WW has a new system and most fruits are free. This makes it so so so so much easier for me. Before I wouldn't be too thrilled about eating a veggie for a snack but now I can just eat a banana for 0 points or blueberries or an apple or a clementine. The list goes on and on and on. It really has made all the difference. I'm still eating lots of veggies too. In fact most of my day consists of veggies and fruits. I also am always feeling satisfied and don't worry I'm eating all my points.

Next challenge is working out. I want to get to where I love the gym and hate to miss it. That may be a ways off but I have to start somewhere. Thursday my knee doc gave me the green light to ride the bike and do the eliptical so now I just need a plan. I'm much more successful when I have a plan. I'm gonna look at my schedule for this week and get back to you on my workout plan.

  1. Jillian Micheals says you don't have to love the gym, you just have to love the way going makes you feel. (I'm paraphrasing) That has helped me a lot!! :) I just enjoy the fact that I can tell people I went and worked out. IT's nice to post it on FB and have everyone say, "Good job!" :) Words of affirmation! :D
