Gratitude even after crappy day

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!

so congrats! That is exciting! I will really try and remember that you don't drink Motn Dew and try not to drink it in front of you! You are so strong! (No, you didn't miss it, I didn't cut my hair until yesterday) :)

Way to go!! remember if you fall off the wagon to let it be in the past...have you tried Diet Dew? Jared swithed to that when we did ww before we got married. or the fizzy safeway drinks-no calories or caffeine but fizzy like soda. I ate chocolate chip cookies last night--crap

How about if you feel like having a DEW, you just come over!! I totally understand because I have way hard days too!! I know from experience that having a friend to get you through makes all the difference :) I hope you had fun last night!! Remember today is a new day and to do some form of exercise. I had to FORCE myself to do the FIRM today, but now I feel GREAT! YOU CAN DO IT!!!!

Beka, I think your awesome for sticking to it. I feel like I'm starving! I am lazy and don't want to make any meals that take any work. Yuck! Then I feel like I have nothing to eat that is good, so I don't eat... Then I feel like quiting... But I'm not! Just got to get past the don't want to cook thing...
