Is the number of pounds I’ve lost over the last week!!! Yay!!!

As many of you know, last week was a difficult food week for me because my brother-in-law and his wife were in town. We spent a ton of time with Adam’s family, which usually means a lot of eating…and not healthy food, either! We had several big meals, including two meals out, one of which was a buffet.

To try to offset the eating that would commence last week, I joined Weight Watchers, and tracked what I ate, planned for healthier options for the meals out and focused on trying to eat proper portions. I know I didn’t eat as well as I could have, but I truly believe that I did SOOOOOOO much better than if I had started WW last week!

What makes me feel even better about my weight loss is that I started my period this weekend, and I usually gain about 3-4 lbs of water weight…which means I probably would have lost more than the 2.8 lbs if I hadn’t been on my period. Next week should hopefully be another outstanding loss!

One thing to throw out there for the few people who have mentioned possibly joining…the new WW Momentum plan has a pretty impressive track record. You know how most weight loss programs usually have a “*Results not typical?” Well, while WW was testing this program, the participants had an AVERAGE WEEKLY WEIGHT LOSS OF 2 POUNDS!!!!! That is absolutely amazing! The program is all about simplifying what you eat…focusing on lean meats, whole grain breads, pastas, rice, etc, skim/fat-free milk products, lots of veggies and fruit, and moderate exercise. WW is really trying to get people away from eating processed foods and eating fresh, simple foods. I like it!

Hope you all are having a great first full week of the New Year! I know I am!

Thanks! It was hard, but well worth it!

We can bring salad and bread. I bought strawberry angel food cake and low fat chocolate sauce for dessert over the weekend for tonight, so we can bring that too if you'd like. Just let me know!

Good for you, Granddaughter! We'll hardly recognize you next time we see you, which may be sooner than you expect!

You have piqued my curiosity....What do you two have planned? Or rather, when do you two have planned?
