Discouraged No More!

So first off I’d like to say, “What the H@LL was I thinking having an 8am weigh-in on a Saturday??” I so did not want to get out of bed this morning. But I did and I’m glad I did. I officially lost 3.2 pounds in my first week of Weight Watchers!! Maybe even more encouraging is the fact that I lost 2 inches off my waist and 1.25 inches from my hips!! I knew my winter coat felt roomier but nothing else really did so I wasn’t sure what the results would be. Needless to say, I am very happy with these results. It is just a simple reassurance that my efforts are worth it. Today’s meeting was informative and I got a few good recipe ideas.

Now after such a great weigh-in the old me would have said, “Let’s celebrate with breakfast from McDonalds. My next weigh-in is a week away and I can work it off.” The new me decided to go home and make my own breakfast. I made a breakfast burrito with ham, egg, mozzarella cheese, onions, green peppers, tomatoes and a small dollop of sour cream. I also had an orange and a bottle of water. It was very good and only 13 points. That is more than my normal weekly breakfast but it was good and filling.

Thanks for checking in and sticking with me on this journey. I appreciate the support and words of encouragement!

Have a Healthy Day!
