Weigh In: Week 3

I know what you are all thinking, "What in the world is she doing now? More weight loss??" Well, yeah. It's kind of one of those things that is never-ending, at least for me.

3 weeks ago, we joined Weight Watchers for what I hope to be the last time. I have a good 45-50 lbs to lose, and I am bound and determined not to be this chubby kid anymore. I am sick and tired of it. Shopping is no fun, and getting into a bathing suit (something I had to do on Saturday) was even worse!! It's going to be a long and tough road, so I will continue to blog here about it as I have done in the past.

Weigh in day is Thursday. Today marks the 4th Thursday since we started the program. Our first official weigh in was on April 23. That was the beginning of the end. We started with just trying to eat properly, and in the last 2 weeks, we have added back in the workout routine.

I am proud to announce that I am down 5 lbs in 3 weeks. I am ecstatic. I haven't been this excited about losing weight in a very long time. It feels really, really good. When I had gestational diabetes during my pregnancy, they told me that I have a 40% chance of developing Type II diabetes in the future. That is enough for me to start focusing on my health, and putting that before anything else right now. We have Charlie to think about now, and he needs his Mom and Dad!

I am patting myself on the back today. And I look forward to sharing this journey with you all.
