Taking It Off! Month 1

Taking it off! Month 1

Week 1

My first week was great! I lost 2.9 pounds! I really didn’t have any cravings, that’s what I like about Weight Watchers; if you need a bit of chocolate, you can have some. It’s all about moderation and planning.

Ok, I don’t look any thinner… yet, but I think it’s super important to make yourself feel good no matter what size of jeans your butt is in at the moment. So I got a fresh color, I hate to ruin anyone’s image of me, but I am a bottle blonde.

Week 2

I was on the road all week. Usually when at a show, we eat a lot of junk, but I behaved! When dining out I had salads and stayed away from the bread they put on the table. I didn’t count my points because we ate out every meal, which is not ideal, I know.

That being said, I was up 1.5 pounds, but in my defense, I started my period the day before I got weighed. For my male readers, a period is when you get bloated, retain water and are easily annoyed by stupid people!

I believe that I am actually down a bit or at least flat from last week; which for a week on the road is awesome! So I am not going to let the scale get me down this week; but that little bitch better be kinder to me next week!!

Week 3

After last week’s gain, I was happy to see the number on the scale go down. I lost 3.6 pounds this week, for a grand total of 3 pounds, in three weeks!! Omg this is my slowest weight loss ever!!!

I thought I would lose 10 pounds my first month, mother frigger!! Lol, but instead of throwing in the towel and walking over to the Cheesecake Factory, yes I live within walking distance to a Cheesecake Factory!!! I am going to put my big girl granny panties on, suck it up and be more focused this week!!

My goal for week 4 is 3 pounds, because a goal 7 pounds in a week seems a bit too optimistic, even for me!!

Week 4

Omg! Finally! I feel like I am getting somewhere; this week I am down 4.6 pounds, yay me!!! I know this seems like a lot in one week, but I have a lot to lose.

I was trying not to lose my motivation and to stay positive, but 3 pounds in 3 weeks wasn’t  exactly awe inspiring. I am down a grand total of 7.6 pounds, a little short of my 10lb goal, but I’ll take it.

I feel like I need to get the first 10lbs out of the way; like the first 10 aren’t very glamorous, because they aren’t noticeable, on me anyway, I am 5’7. But the next 10 is when I will start to feel it.

So what did I do differently this week? Nothing, I think it just took a few weeks to kick in? Like my body was thinking, mmm not sure what is going on here??

My goal for month 2 is 10 pounds and I am going in feeling strong and excited. I feel that I am in a great mindset and I believe that is key. I am not eating my feelings and I am really not that hungry. I make sure that I am satisfied, so I am by no means depriving myself. I had a chocolate chip cookie the other day, it was so yummy! But I had half of it and then saved the other half for later, I spread the yummyness. I could have woofed it down, but after eating half I decided that I was satisfied, so I put it away and ate it later.

I am trying to be more mindful of what I am eating and why I am eating. So bring on month 2!! Oh and I apologized to the scale for calling her a little bitch, we’re friends again.

muah!
