Weigh In Day: Week 1

It's like starting all over again. This journey is hard sometimes, and I found that out this week.

I am still currently breastfeeding my sweet Charlie and so I am instructed to eat 38 points a day. Anyone that has been on Weight Watchers, knows that 38 is a TON of points. I always had an issue eating all of my points, and I noticed myself lacking again this week. I love to eat. How can it be so hard to get all this food in my body?? Well, it just is! I need to start snacking some more. I am also back on the Phit N Phat train, and getting excited to start my workouts again. Corrine has always been so inspiring, and she was so helpful to me last time, and I think I need that support again.

The toughest part of this week was exercise. I didn't do ANY. I know that I need to get my body moving, but it is even harder now with a little one at home. I am one of those people that needs to work out first thing in the a.m. before I shower, or first thing right after I get out of work. Neither of those options are going to work right now. I am going to have to figure out a way to go after Charlie is in bed. 8pm would be a good time, but it's going to be so hard to do. I just know it. We have a gym membership that we get every year for Christmas, and I want to use it so badly!!!

And now I know you are sitting on the edge of your seat waiting for my weigh-in results. After all of that, I still ended up losing 2.2 lbs. I feel good. GREAT, actually! But, I know I have a long way to go. This is only the beginning.

Congrats - that is great Em! You'll get into a groove with it all - Spring on the horizon will definitely help in the exercise department - you can get out the fancy jogging stroller! :-)

Em- How about some nuts? I always add in pecan's to increase my points.

Working out is hard and I can't even think about doing it with a child. Does the gym have a daycare?

Congrats on losing that weight! I've never been good with following a diet - is WW easy? [I know you said it's hard to eat all of your points in a day, but I'm curious about following in general.]

Kellie, I need to add some nuts in there. We have them in the pantry. I just keep forgetting to pack them!! Are you still doing WW too?
