OK, full disclosure. This is a very, very hard post to write. I feel that I need to write it though.
Starting weight: There is a 2 lb difference between getting weighed at the doctor and the first time I weighed in at Weight Watchers. Doctors office weight was...204. Weight Watchers was 202 (4/9)
Current weight: 196 (as of today 7/11)
Goal weight: 140
Inches: I didn't take measurements right away because I was well, figuring it would be just like all of my other times of trying to lose weight. So I figured I wouldn't bother. I had Ben take some a couple of weeks ago but will share that later.
Pictures: I didn't take any before pictures for the exact same reason I didn't measure. However, this all started the week after my in-laws came for a visit. All pictures taken during their visit, I sort of consider my "before" pictures. The 3 pictures above were all taken on the same weekend.
My current weigh in day is Saturday.
Program I follow: Most people aren't aware that Weight Watchers actually has two programs. One is the basic points program that you hear about all the time. The other one is called Simply Filling. This program has a huge list of foods that you can eat, without counting points. You get a weekly points allowance, and anything not on the simply filling list, you use those. That is the plan that I am following. I don't go and weigh in at meetings because, I get to focused on the scale. I let the scale determine what kind of day I am going to have. I know it is just me, but for now I am doing everything online.
Workouts: I have fallen in love with running! It sounds so weird to me. Yet, here we are. Right now, I run 3x's a week and do water aerobics 3x's a week as well. My kids go back to school on the 20th, and so I won't be able to do water aerobics anymore. Just because of timing. Instead my new schedule will look like this...
M & F : Zumba
T & Th : Body pump (kind of an aerobics and strength training mix)
W & S : run
There you go. More info than you would ever want to know!
