Yes!!! I am soooo loving Weight Watchers right now! I haven't felt this positive about the concept of "dieting" or losing weight ever!
I've had a pretty good week - at least until a couple of days ago. Been busy, on the go, but overall it's been easy to stay on track. I had planned to document/journal what I was feeling when I felt like eating things I shouldn't, but really didn't have much of an issue with that this week...until yesterday. Someone "attacked" me via email over my money-saving blog and said some very hateful and hurtful things. And I started wanting to eat junk. However, the success is that I didn't give in to it. Every time I started to want junk beyond what my points would have allowed for (I did have either a couple of oreos each day, or a Skinny Cow Ice Cream Sandwich), I kept reminding myself that I want the weight loss more. And, I did it! I stayed away from the wrong choices even when I was emotionally distraught!
OK...so now for the "stats."
I lost another 2.8 lb this week!! Yay!
If you have missed my past posts and want to see them, here's the links:
Week 6 - down 0.2 lb
Week 5 - down 1.2 lb
Week 4 - down 2.8 lb
Week 3 - up 2 lb
Week 2 - down 2.4 lb
Week 1 - down 1.6 lb
Grand total - down 9 lb!
I don't recall a time in my life where I have ever consistenly lost weight week after week like this. Yes, I had the one week of going up 2 lb, but it wasn't surprising considering we were on our "staycation." And then last week had minimal loss, but I thought that was good considering it was PMS week!
My goal is to lose 1 lb per week. If I get more, I'm thrilled. If it's less, I'm still happy as long as it's going down! This will probably be at least 1.5-2 year journey for me to reach my goal, but I'm ready to do this for the long haul.
