WW-Week 1

So, for all of you out there just dying to know how my first week of Weight Watchers went, I’m friggin ecstatic happy to report that I am 4.4pounds lighter this week.  I was so pissed that I didn’t get a star.  .6 away from it just breaks me, especially knowing that I went over my points one day because I didn’t know that Starbucks could make a Vivanno smoothie with non-fat milk (yes believe it or not – I did not know this.  I don’t drink coffee and rarely go into places like Starbucks – damn you Starbucks!).   Anyway – I really like this WW program because I don’t feel deprived of food.  If I want to eat 9 Hershey kisses for lunch, then so be it (though miraculously I have not done this yet!)  I’ve actually enjoyed what I’ve been eating and have not felt hungry at all – though the first day on the plan, I think my body went into lack of food shock and I had a bad headache all day).  I also am attending the meetings and though it is a time suck for me in my already busy life, I feel motivated by the leader all of the fabulous folks there.  I’ve been exploring the world of low point foods and have already found some favorites.  While I have a rather lofty goal to lose 80 pounds (I’d be happy with 60),  I’m continuing to stay optimistic by achieving some of my smaller goals, the first of which is to break 200 (there, I finally said it).  I’m hoping to be able to report that next week, but if not, definitely in week 3.  Stay tuned!

  1. Congratulations! 4.4 pounds in week 1 is AWESOME!!! And you’ll hit 5 pounds next week. No worries.

    And I’m a bad friend for not getting you the individual cake recipe. I promise to that. It has been a good week for me with work and I’ve been too damn lazy to do ANYTHING. I apologize.

    Good luck on Week 2! I’ve been stalking your journal to see how it’s going. 🙂

    • Thank you for the positive comments! Always good to get some props when dieting!

  2. YAY! I’ve been torn between wanting to ask how it went and not wanting to bring it up in case you didn’t like the answer. This really is the beauty of WW, if you choose, you can use it to guide your choices even after you’re done dieting to help keep you on track. I’m proud of you!

    • Thanks! Always nice to get some positive reinforcement!
