I went to my first week's weigh-in for Weight Watchers yesterday. I was pretty despondent, and told my friends that if I hadn't lost anything, I was going to quit. Well, I did lose something - 5.8 pounds!! I was so shocked, and happy, when I read the scale. All my starvation paid off! Since I had such a successful first week, I was asked to share what I did to help me get there. I said I starved! But then my friends had me add that my husband helped out a LOT by making me meals, counting my points and giving me options, and just being plain supportive. I also gave up Mountain Dew - cold turkey. Something that I didn't get to share with everyone else, but I shared with the leader, should be known by you blog lurkers. A big help to me this week was my friend Jess. She would call every couple of days and ask how I was doing. She took me shopping one day, and showed me some good foods to eat and what snacks were tasty. Thanks Jess!
My crappy day today was bad, though. I almost cried a lot, and wanted to quit everything - WW, outside activities, shopping - everything. I felt so bad for myself that I went out and bought a Mountain Dew and drank it all, and tasted good!
Hopefully tomorrow will be better. But I would just like to say thanks again to Jess and my husband. They helped a lot! And thanks to those who have posted their support for my newest endeavor. 5.8 pounds baby!
