Who found my 10 lbs?!
Today is my day to weigh myself in for Weight Watchers. I started it on Tuesday the 8th & I've already lost TEN freakin pounds! I didn't think it would happen. I honestly thought it would take me a few weeks to even lose a few lbs. I'm guessing it's water weight because none of my clothes fit any different but hey.. I'm not too worried about it. I'm so super proud of myself & I know Sailor will be when he reads the email I sent him. I'm not doing anything special - just watching what I eat and how much of it I'm eating. It's hard but it really makes you think "Do I really want to risk 10 points on this chocolate muffin when I can use those 10 points on something more filling & way better?" I do this EVERY time I'm picking what I want to eat. & I can already tell my stomach is shrinking because I'm not eating when I'm already full & pushing myself to finish my plate. I stop eating when I feel full. I had a bad habit of just eating & eating & eating until my plate was cleared.. that's a REALLY bad habit to get into. & so is "Well, if I eat this Zebra Cake for dessert I'll be alright if I work off the calories tomorrow".. You *can* do that but you can also eat healthier & burn twice as many calories for a whole day at the gym instead of worrying about that one zebra cake. It's all about self control :) & I'm slowly learning.
