Weigh-In day.... I lost 1.8 lbs last week.  And I worked for every stinkin ounce.  Man, cutting these cravings and not giving in is going to kill me. 
It's been 3 weeks since I started WW and exercising again, and I have lost 3 lbs total.  Not bad, but not great either.  I need to kick this up.  If I want to stay on track to loose at least 40 lbs before June 5th, then I have to loose a little more than 2 lbs. every week.  The pressure!!! ARRGHHHHH!!! 

18 weeks and counting...

I went hiking yesterday and then got a serious sweat on while cleaning and scrubbing the house...which was good cause it NEEDED it.  Today I conqured on of my fears....I went to my first spin class.  One of my friends teaches spin at the health club about 30 minutes from me, so I decided to go there to take my first spin class just in case I couldn't handle it and had to walk out with my head held in shame.  Sooo happy to report that I made it through with flying colors. I only had to sit and catch my breath a couple times, but I kept pedaling.  Let me tell you, that is a seriously good workout.  I was pouring sweat.  One thing is my ass hurts now from the seat. I wonder if this is something my body would get used to?

My diet has been pretty good...I am on WW and I haven't used any of  my extra weekly points.  I earned 72 activity points this week...which is A LOT!  However, I only have 29 activity points that means that I have been over on my points quite a bit this week.  I am still trying to figure out how to get a 5 lb. loss each week.  If I could just keep at or just under the daily points everyday, and not use any of my activity points for a whole week, I wonder if it would do it?  I guess that will be my goal for next week.

I weigh in we shall see how this week worked out.

And the countdown begins....I have my daughters graduation from high school coming up June 5th.  This is no ordinary occation of commencement, oh no no, this is the occation that a lot of middle aged, overweight people (read women) panic about.  See, my daughter lives in my home town with her dad.  This means that I will not only be seeing my ex (which I don't truley care about), but also his wife (who is the devil in-carnate), as well as many people whom I have not seen in about 20 years.  I have to look decent.  I'm not expecting to look like I did back then...I mean, come many people really look like they did in high school?  but, I do need to look presentable, and hopefully good enough for a double take.

So, this is where the fun begins.  I have just started Weight Watchers the second week of Jan.  and I have to say that it is not as easy, or as enjoyable, as they make it seem.  Hopefully this blog will help me recognize my pitfalls and how I sabotage myself when it comes to my health along with giving me a place to go when I feel like I am going to devour everything in my kitchen.

I hope that I will make a few new friends along the way, and any tips and tricks are always welcomed and encoraged.

I weigh in every Monday I will post my loss then, and I will post my loss from my measurments the beginning of the month (although I just took my measurments this past monday..they won't be much if any for the beginning of Feb).

Let's do this! 128 days and counting!
