Week 1: Recap

So, week one was a success. I weighed in this morning & lost 5.4 pounds! Goodness it feels good to see that number go down. That puts me at 245.8 pounds. I’m so happy to be below 250, I can’t even begin to say.

Something I’ve learned about myself in past experiences on WW is that I need to be careful what goals I set for myself. For some reason I tend to sabotage myself when I reach a goal or get very close to one. I’m not really sure how to overcome that, but it’s something I’m working on. Any suggestions you have would be greatly appreciated.

This time I’m not really going to set any “big” goals. I’m just trying to look at it 5 pounds at a time. So, yay, first goal reached!

This first week, for me, has mostly been about getting back into the groove of watching my portions, counting points & journaling everything I eat. Tracking my food has always been a huge part of the process for me, and it still is.

There are a few things that I would like to try and work on this next week:

* Drink more water

* Take a multi-vitamin. This will probably be in the form of a prenatal vitamin since we’d like to add to the family soon.

* Move more. Thanks to my friend Mae I now have a brand new pair of running shoes. Time to put them to work.

I’m so happy that this first week has gone well. I know that I won’t lose 5 pounds every week, but as long as I make good decisions & journal my food I’ll be successful.
