Not Expecting Too Much Here...

Well the results are in. As I was stuffing my face yesterday with Christmas dinner, I knew today was weigh-in day. So I am not expecting too much this week from my body. It's probably in shock from all the food.

Highest Weight - 171lbs
Starting Weight - 165lbs
Current Weight - 12/26/08 - 157.0lbs
Weight Loss - 8lbs

I am so glad the holidays are over and I can get back on track with this diet stuff. Now if I can just clear my house of all the cookies, brownies and cheesecake. No hope is lost, but no weight was lost this week either. It's a new week, and it will soon be a New Year!

Oh....The Holidays

They say that December is the worst time to be dieting. Most people throw in the towel and restart their diet in January. I have been trying so hard to stay on track with everything. The good news is I am maintaining my weight and not gaining. But the bad news is I'm not losing as much as I would hope.

Highest Weight - 171lbs
Starting Weight - 165lbs
Current Weight - 12/20/08 - 155.2lbs
Weight Loss - 9.8lbs

But hey I can't complain too much. I know I have been eating my share of sugar cookies and fudge....Eekk!! Oh well, the holidays are almost over and I can get a fresh start. I still have 9 months to wedding right??

A VERY Small Setback

So I knew that today would be a little disappointing. My cravings for fast food were horrible this last week. I couldn't get over the feeling, that I had to have some french fries. And I kept telling myself, oh only a few will be ok. But a few adds up. So I wasn't surprised to not see the scale move much this week. I was 156.6lbs last week, and 157lbs this week, but it's a VERY small set back and it's not going to get me down at all. I am still very excited about my weight loss and this week is a new week.

Highest Weight - 171lbs
Starting Weight - 165lbs
Current Weight - 12/12/08 - 157lbs
Weight Loss - 8lbs

That scale better be ready for next week!

Picture Time

So I found these pictures of me, they were taken on Labor Day weekend. When Matt and I went fishing. 9/1/08 - I was around 170lbs in these pictures. These pictures frankly, make me sick! But I thought it was ok to share them now.

Here is a picture of me tonight. Click on it to make it bigger. But I put it next to my 165lbs picture so you can see the differance. LOOK at my face, holy cow! And I am starting to get that womanly curve back haha!

Weigh-In Day!!

I get so excited on Friday mornings cause I know it is my weigh-in day. Today I noticed - I have hip bones! I can't beleive this diet is working for me. I thought I was a lost hope. I never joined because I didn't want to pay money to lose my weight. But I am so thankful I decided to join weight watchers. Today when I logged my weight I got a red star, and a congradulations.

Highest Weight - 171lbs
Starting Weight - 165lbs
Current Weight - 12/05/08 - 156.6lbs
Weight Loss - 8.4lbs

Did you know 1lb is the same as 4 sticks of butter. And 5lbs is the same as a sack of potatoes! This is best I have felt in a long time. I can now see myself where I want to be, which used to just be a dream. I can't wait to try on wedding dresses.

I'm Blushing...

So today I recieved my first compliment. I came out of the bathroom at work and one of the guys said "Are you losing weight?" I looked at him, assuming my co-worker Karen told him to say that. I laughed and said "Yes!" And he said "Well it's really starting to show!" I was so excited. When he left the room I asked Karen how much she paid him to say that. She said nothing. It felt great!!

By the way I want to give a special congradulations to Matt's mom Shelly. She has joined weight watchers also. She had her first weigh in today, she was nervous, but ended up losing 3.5lbs!! Whoo Hoo!!

So today I wore a fresh pair of jeans from the dryer. You know how they are always horribly tight when you first put them on. Well I will be honest with you. I wore a size 13 in juniors. So today we went and did our thing and I had to pull my pants up every 3 seconds. It was the most annoying thing. And my pants looked horrible because the theighs were so baggy. So I went to ARC, and bought a pair of size 10 jeans. When I got home from ARC I tried them on and they fit perfect. So I have shrunk to size 10 in juniors. I am so excited, I used to hate clothes shopping cause all the cute things were only cute if you were a size S or M. So I just had to share my success.

I also asked Matt if he has noticed any difference in my apperance. He said, "Yes in your face, fingers and butt" lol.. I must have been holding 5lbs in my fingers hehe.

Something's Working

Well today I was nervous about weighing in since yesterday was Thanksgiving. I didn't eat too much. I was proud of myself for saying "No" to the extra helping of mashed potatos and extra pie. So today I was surpised to find the scale in my favor.

Highest Weight - 171lbs
Starting Weight - 165lbs
Current Weight - 11/28/08 - 159.6lbs

So something seems to be working pretty well. I will continue this until I am happy with my weight. I am so sick of thinking about my weight it's the most annoying thing. Weight Watchers is working for me and I love it.

First Weigh In

Well today was my first official weight in at I had logged my starting weight as 165lbs, because that's what I was when I started online. So Friday is my weigh-in day. I weigh myself every morning though, and Thurs morning I got down to 160lbs. I was excited, then of course today comes and I'm 161.2lbs. Oh well it was still good to see a negative on my weigh-in.

Highest Weight - 171lbs
Starting Weight - 165lbs
Current Weight - 11/21/08 - 161.2lbs

I kind of stopped working out, and I was just trying to eat right. But I think I need to work the workout back into the routine. It sure made the pounds fall off. But hey, 1lb is the same as 4 sticks of butter!! So I am feeling good. I can't beleive just the little weight loss that I have had, I am so much more motivated. I find myself doing dishes, laundry and everything with out feeling lazy. It's great. I like it. See you next Friday!!

Let's Get Moving

So I thought I would start a blog of my weight watchers journey. So far everything has been going great. I will keep you up to date with my weekly weigh ins and how it goes.

Highest Weight - 171lbs
Starting Weight - 165lbs
Current Weight - 163lbs

So today when I got on the scale I could not believe that I had lost weight. I thought my scale couldn't go below 165lbs. But today was the most awesome feeling. It was like a wave of releif, like "wow this can really happen to me!" I had been 170lbs forever, then I started running and got to 165lbs and the weight loss stopped, so I stopped running. Then as soon as I join weight watchers it's dropping like crazy.
