So I couldn't decide if I was going to share this with the internets but it has become a part of my life so in the gesture of full disclosure, I am on Weight Watchers. That's right. It has been going pretty well and I am starting to see some results. I've lost about 12 pounds which is way more than I have ever lost in the past.
I am very lucky to have a supportive husband who has been participating with me. This is mainly because I am the buyer of the groceries, the preparer of the food and the packer of the lunches. I have been keeping up with his points along with mine. His program isn't as strict as mine because let's face it. If he talks about maybe cutting down a coke a day he can lose 25 pounds.
We women on the other hand have to work very hard to lose .3 pounds a month so it takes a little more commitment from us. I have been back on the program for almost 5 weeks and I am really proud of how I'm doing so far.
Now I haven't been perfect. I have "cheated" along the way. Sometimes cheese dip is too good to pass up!! I am also pretending to do Jillian Michaels 30 day Shred. I say pretending because I did it consistently for a week and have since not put the DVD in. She's mean. And hateful. But she has a rocking body so I will probs pick that back up come the weekend.
Any recipes and/or helpful hints would be appreciated.
Fun facts of the day: I have apparently lost just enough weight for my current size to be too big but I'm not completely in the smaller size yet so I was told the outfit I wore to work might come in handy when I become pregnant. Thanks. It's a compliment yes but I don't want to look pregnant just yet. Maybe in 2 or so years (sorry Mom :) ).
I'm super excited to continue to lose and see how I look. It has been a sad amount of time since I've loved summer clothes :) I have thought about starting a blog solely for weight loss but lets be honest here. I can barely update this blog so another might be too much :) I will continue to do updates for the two of you who might be interested.
