It all started last night about 2 hours before bed. I was out of points and STARVING!!! Instead of just blowing my WW I decided to just go to bed. A new day of points was just 7 hours away and I knew I could do that. It worked! I wasn't as hungry this morning and felt great! Tonight I'm also hungry but I am going to bed in a minute so that is okay. I can do this!!!!
Tomorrow marks my 2 month mark since I began on January 5th. Wow, what a journey. Today at Weight Watchers I received my 10% keychain and my leader asked me my thoughts. I told her that I just have to keep telling myself that I know I can do it. Even when I don't want to. Last week I just felt bloated and like I couldn't do it but instead of giving up the program, I just did it with a bad attitude. You know what I'm talking about............. "UGGGGGGHHHHHH, I don't WANT to eat a 1 point yogurt!! I WANT to get a Big Breakfast from McDonalds!" But........ I made it through a really tough week and was even able to eat out with some friends on Saturday night which was super yummy!! I even got to order and eat what I normally would have. I think the key to success with weight loss is this.............. everything in moderation. Yes, I can have that yummy chocolate cake once in a while but I cannot have it every night!!! Popcorn is just as satisfying as ice cream. Okay, I lied on that one but you get my point.
Today I took the day off from exercising. My body just needed a break. Now that I know that I can and will do the exercising part I'm going to try to feel what my body is expressing. If my legs are sore and weak then they need a day to rest. I am going to be raring to go tomorrow morning.
My mom comes out to visit next Friday and last time she saw me I weighed about 162-164 and I am now 140!!!! My family hasn't seen me like this since before my 3rd child. I honestly used to just think there was no hope for me and that it would be impossible for me to lose any weight. I thought that because I didn't have as much to lose as those people on TV that I wouldn't be able to do it. I am so happy to prove myself wrong every day!!! Okay, back to my mom! She is also doing WW so it will be fun to be able to prepare and eat the same goodies during her visit. We are going to Branson, MO for a few days so that might be a challenge but together I know we can do it.
Okay, I took some pics of me last Thursday so I will post them and post some other pics of me before I started my journey. Even though I don't like to look at them....... it was me, and that is what my family sees and loves me as. This is more of a heath thing than anything else. I just want to have energy again! I feel it coming back!!
Night night! Hope you all are doing great! Please share your journey with me, too!
