I’ve done Weight Watchers (this time) for a week now. I’ve counted points and managed to get some exercise in here and there. I drank a lot of water and tried to choose fruits and veggies over non-fruits and veggies. And what do I have to show for it?
I’m already one-third of the way to my first goal! Oh, if I could only lose five pounds every week. I may be optimistic, but I’m also realistic. I also know this is mostly water weight. Do I care? Nope! Five pounds is five pounds, baby.
So I’m starting again. Five pounds lighter. And next week? I’ll start again. A little lighter than this week. And so on. It’s part of my “one week at a time” strategy. Maybe this time it will work!
You rage on with your bad self..
You go, Jen!!
Woo hoo! Way to go!
I know it’s totally lame that I’m sitting here at my computer doing the cabbage patch, but I’m also chanting “Go Jenster, Go Jenster!”Because that ROCKS! 5 lbs!I just started babysitting today for a friend who is long-term subbing. I’ve been sweating like a farm animal, and so far have only eaten half a banana. I’m hoping the child-care diet will work for me, lol.
I just heart “girl’s” comment.I’m so proud of you! You’ve lost a bag of flour. In just 3 more pounds, you’ll have lost a gallon of milk or a newborn baby–whichever makes you feel more cool. 🙂 I’m doing the “healthy lifestyle” thang, too. Starting…just starting…to feel like I can handle life w/o 3 desserts.
oh, good for you!! it always feels good when we know we have reached a goal. keep it up, and be gentle with yourself if you have a small slip up. we are all human–even you in all your supercoolness!
Hooray! Good for you! You will be getting your hair cut before you know it!
Woohoo, great job!!CindyS
WOOO HOOOO!!! That’s awesome… I’ve been on WW for about 7 weeks now and I’ve lost almost 17 pounds… unfortunately for me… that’s just a drop in a VERY LARGE bucket! but hey… it’s a start!!!!So I’m with you 100% of the way… !!!Here’s to us LOSERS!!!
You’re right, 5 lbs is 5 lbs. And 1 lb. less is better than before it is gone. As long as you keep moving in that direction, you’ll be a winning loser! How ’bout that? :DGood for you!!!
5 pounds is a great start!!! You feel better and it helps keep your motivation going. You go Jen! I am happy for you.
That is great Jen! I hope you’re feeling the difference, and that it’s inspiring you to keep at it. I really want to see your new look 🙂
WHOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWHOOP! WHOOP! WHOOP!Good Job, girl! Can’t wait to hug your skinny self in October!
Good for you Jen! I know how hard it is.
Jen I don’t know how far you go back and so just want to say that your vacation pictures are WONDERFUL! What a blessing to have a family trip like that. 🙂
YAY good for you!!!
That’s great!When I complain about my weight my husband says to exercise. I don’t like to exercise. Fortunately, I’ve only gained 6 lbs, but I figure it has to start somewhere. 🙁
TA DA!!!! Whenever The Hoffer & I would diet and lose some "water weight", his cousin would always remind us that's all it was, so in her mind it didn't really count. So discouraging!!! WHO CARES!!! 5 POUNDS IS 5 POUNDS!!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!
Go girl Go!I’m working on it too..started today!!I’ll take it ONE DAY at a time..smiles, Deena
