I'm starting, err I should say I might be starting a new thing where on Thursdays, after my Weight Watcher's meeting, I will post a picture and and report on my week and my loss/gain.
First, let me honestly tell you I cheat. When I start, I always wear shoes and fill my pockets with change, lead and an extra small pygmy. Usually the day of a weigh in, I don't eat or drink anything until after the meeting. I take off everything I possibly can (earrings, pony tail holders, mascara) and exhale before I step on the scale.
Now remember, I usually have smashing success the first three to six weeks and next thing I know, I'm no longer a Weight Watchers member in good standing. This time, I'm going to attempt to treat it like a marathon. Slow and steady. Or at least keep with it at least until summer or beyond.
Recently there have been several pictures posted of me via email and the internet that I think are BEYOND unflattering. They're down right rude! Ugh. And because no one who loves me said anything like you don't really look like that, I've had to accept that the what I think I look like may not actually be what I look like. Eeeek. Suffice to say, the last picture some one took of me I felt like I looked as wide as I am tall.
So this week. I had two delightful Mexican dinners. One was a catered affair church fundraiser and the other was Bossy's excellent road trip meal. The latter INCLUDED margaritas. I ate oatmeal every day for breakfast and drank tons of water.
And the results for week one: SEVEN (7) Pounds Lost
True to form, I came out of the gate in a sprint.
