When I joined Weight Watchers last week, I felt terrible. When I got on the scale, I actually tried to commit everything I was feeling to memory -- how tight my clothes felt, how tired and depressed I felt, how I couldn't even stand up straight because my back was still so sore. That, especially.
Last week the scale said 232.4, and I committed that to memory too. Not quite an all time high, but pretty bad nonetheless.
This week I made a meal plan, ate within my points, filled my fridge with all new groceries. And I didn't weigh myself at home, not once. So I although I expected a loss at yesterdays weigh in, I wasn't quite sure what. Maybe I could get back into the 220s?
When I stepped on the scale yesterday, I noticed I felt just a bit better. I noticed I could stand up straighter. And when the receptionist glanced at my weigh-in she said, "Well! I guess I don't have to ask how your first week went!"
The scale showed 226.6, or a loss of 5.8 lbs!!!!!
Needless to say I was thrilled. Beyond thrilled. Over-the-moon thrilled. To be honest, I'm not sure I've EVER had a loss that high on WW.
To be honest, I feel amazing. I've been trying to really get 'back on track' for probably two years now, and for whatever or various reasons, it hasn't stuck. This is the first time since -- well, since I joined WW the first time -- that it really feels like it's 'clicked'. I'm in it to win it this time. :)
