Week after week I am surprised how well I am doing at losing weight this time around. I say this time around because this is not the first time I have tried losing weight. I have been trying for years and nothing I did seemed to work. I'd loose like 5 pounds and then I wouldn't be able to lose anymore. Weight Watchers has taught me not to diet but to live a healthy life style. Eat the right size portions!
I love feeling like I am succeeding! I wrote a couple weeks ago about trying on a size nine pair of pants at the mall. I didn't buy them because I could get them on and button them but they were snug. I am happy to announce that I went and bought those pants and they now fit perfect!! It's an awesome feeling when you can walk into a store and just grab a size you think might fit and then it does! I used to hate shopping for clothes. I hated grabbing things to try on and them not fitting. I don't feel that way anymore!
I went to Weight Watchers last week (2/12/13) and weighed in. I lost 2.2 pounds! I have to confess that I went in their thinking I was not going to lose ANYTHING! My husband and I are house shopping right now and I had spent 3 days down in Kentucky and ate out for every meal. I watched what I ate and made sure not to over stuff myself but I was still concerned. Well I proved to myself that even when I am eating out I can still lose weight! This is also a great feeling. I feel like I am finally understanding what I need to do for myself.
This week (2/19/13) Weight Watchers got canceled due to really bad weather. It's been snowing like crazy. My scale is normally off compared to the Weight Watchers scale so I'm going to guess I lost about 1 pound this week.
As I stated earlier we have been house hunting so that is why I was a little behind on my posts for my weight journey! Want to see a picture of the house we are hoping to purchase?
As exciting as it is to be looking to purchase our first home it's also stressful. I have been trying hard not to allow the stress to get to me! I am going to just be excited and not focus on the stress part. LOL this is easier said than done.
With the crazy snow we have been getting I have not felt very motivated. I seem to do so much better at exercising when the weather is nice out. So this week I am going to try to find ways to get myself motivated every day!
I hope that all of you who have started your own weight journeys are succeeding! I love reading all of your comments! They motivate me!
