I cannot thank you all enough for sharing encouraging photos, stories, links, and words over the past week or so. I feel very confident in my journey to lose this weight.
Based on the majority of the opinions I got from friends and family, I
decided Weight Watchers was the way to go to help me eat healthier and
get in shape. I am excited to get to eat some of what I want and still lose weight. For instance, when I first logged on today I learned about how I have a certain number of points I can use daily and then an extra amount to use weekly if I choose. I can lose weight if I eat right at all of my allotted points OR under them. Nice! I also learned that a cupcake has less points than a biscuit, so I had two cupcakes for a snack as opposed to the 1 1/2 biscuits I had for breakfast.
Okay, so it isn't starting out great, but I'll get the hang of it. And I'll try not to use up all my weekly extra points on crap this afternoon.
Official starting weight: 181
Let the games begin!
