Weight Watchers Day 1

Well, I will start off by saying last night at about 8pm, I went to the fitness center and did a mile on the elliptical and a mile on the treadmill. Felt very good afterward and was happy I did it!

This morning my alarm went off at 7am and I have every intention of turning it off and going back to bed but that nagging voice in my head woke me up. Don't put it off like every other time. Get up, get going and get healthy it said to me. So I reluctantly got out of bed and got into the shower, took the dog for a quick walk to go potty and out the door by 7:30am for my very first Weight Watcher meeting. I figured there would be a lot of people and there was. I would guess about 30 or so!! I waited in line forever to get signed up and then had to wait in line for the scales. I have decided to use Weight Watchers weigh ins as my official weight so I will revise my starting number to match the one on their scale. So, my starting weight is 338.2 which is not too far from the weight I initially stated. They do recommend not weighing yourself at home so I will only post my weight every Saturday after my meetings.

The meeting itself went well. It was an introduction to the new Points Plus system. This plan is completely different than the last and all of the information and points, etc have changed so it was nice to have a introduction and learn about the new plan. I purchased a points calculator and a three month food journal to track what I eat. I have been tracking my food online but I thought the book would be good for those times that I do not have access to the internet. I can write down what I eat and transfer it to the online tracker once I get home.

I don't have any deep thoughts today (some of you are probably relieved - LOL) so this will be a short post. I am excited to go to my meeting next week so I can see how much I lose in the first week. Last time I was on Weight Watchers - I gained the first week, was so frustrated and pretty much gave up. This time will be different and I am very committed to this process!

Have a Healthy Day!!
