Week 1

I have good news and bad news.  The bad news is: I did lose any weight this week. The good news:  I AM NOT GIVING UP!!!   More good news:  I didn't gain anything either.  I am always happy to see that nothing has been added to my packaging. 

Last week was rough and quite frankly, I had no real plan.  This is where a program like Weight Watchers can really help a person.  As soon as I have funding, I am going back.  Yes, I said "back."  I am what is known as a Lifetime Member.  Any fellow WW people out there know what this means.  It means I achieved my goal and maintained.  Once you make your goal, you attain "lifetime" status.   This means meeting are free to you so long as you maintain that goal.   

So what happened last week?  It rained.  A lot.  You can't do anything really when it rains.  I made cookies.  I really shouldn't have cookies in the house.  Cookies and me are like alcohol and an alcoholic.  One is too many and 12 is not enough.    I gave some away to at least save me a little from temptation.  I used to separate them out equally.  That is something I can put back into play. 

I ate a lot of carrots.  I like carrots.  I changed my lunches from somewhat healthy to very healthy.  I am not sure how I did on snack intake.  I don't have candy in the house so that saved me a gain I think.  So what will I be doing this week?

Tracking.  I am going to keep a food journal.  A food journal a long with some portion control. I guess that means I need to go to STAPLES and buy a cute little journal and a special pen!!!  Is anyone else getting excited or is that just me?

Stay tuned next week!
Pounds lost: 0

I know I should do that with my meals but the thought just depresses me too much right now. I'm just trying to avoid in between meal snacks at the moment and getting the exercise regular

You can do it!! Not gaining is always a win in my book!

I always find that the first few are weeks difficult. I hardly loose anything. I'm not sure if my system is in chock and then it gets it that I'm serious and I start dropping. Good luck in this healthy living style. Anne-Marie :)
