WW Weigh In #1= 2.4 lb loss!!

Drum roll please........(insert funny tongue noise here).....

WW Weight In #1: -2.4 pounds!!!

I am really happy with my loss this week. I think I have fnally got my mind wrapped around this whole weightloss thing=)

I realize that I've been keeping myself from going for my dream of becoming a writer. I keep telling myself that noone will be my agent once they see how big I am. I also don't want to have my picture taken for the back cover with me looking so fat. But instead of doing something about it so I can go for my dream, I use it as an excuse. I am tired of being scared of the future. I do want to look good on the back cover, so let's do soemthing about it!!

Confession: I really, really, really want to eat a whole pint of icecream right now!! But I won't!!

Cheer: I loost 2.4 pounds this week!!!

What a great day!!

Things at school are really starting to add up and I am super tired. But on a high note, I had a really great day!! Eating wise and work wise. For teachers, we have to have an administrator come into our classroom and observe how we teach. I always get so nervous about this. I know I am a great teacher, but it still makes me crazy when someone is watching me. I had a great observation today and my kiddos were sooo good!!

Eating wise, I haven't been perfect this first week, but who ever is perfect? I am not going to beat myself up for anything I did this week. I know I will show a loss tomorrow at WW. I am really looking forward to it. Wish me luck!!

Confession: I totally hid a bag of peanut butter M&Ms in the car on the way home. And I totally hid it from my two kids!! LOL

Cheer: I am really happy with my eating today. I have been staying on my points too!!

Highs and Lows

WW Day 3

I wish I could tell you that yesterday I was just spot on. I was about halfway there....

I started off really well and ended up eating out of stress and frustration. Things at work aren't going too well. Teaching was not all I had hoped it to be. Don't get me wrong, I love teaching kids who need my help, but when the administration comes in and focuses more on test scores and nothing else, then it becomes depressing. It's like they don't see us making a difference and teaching quality things. All they care about is test scores. Almost makes me want to quit and start a whole new career. Still related to education, but something else maybe.

So, anyways....I found myself scarfing down snacks. Not too bad, but enough to make me feel guilty afterwards. Plus, my husband came home around 7:30 last night, so we just had some fast food for dinner. I am going to count my points on it though.

Confession: I did end up breaking down and had a coke yesterday=(

Cheer: For lunch I had gotten my son McDonalds for being so good at the doctors office, but I went home and made myself a sandwich instead!! That was really hard for me not to order too, but I knew we might be having fast food for dinner, and I didn't want it twice in one day.

Potty Dance

WW- Day 2

The one bad thing about getting all of your water in for the day is the many trips to the bathroom that you take.

Now, this wouldn't normally be a problem...but I am a teacher!! I also work outside in a portable unit....several feet from the nearest restroom!! Thank goodness I have a great set of kiddos who I can trust to leave for a short period of time (with the neighbor teacher watching of course!) to let me go and take care of business.

It has even become a joke in the classroom when they see me doing the "Potty Dance." After several minutes of this dance they finally just yell at me to go to the bathroom. LOL

I found this funny photo online that I had to share. This is what I look like standing in front of my classroom!! Enjoy!!

Confession: I had a few cookies today...just three...and they were small.....not too bad right?

Cheer: I counted my points today and even got in all of my water!! I even counted those cookies in=)

WW- Day 1

So, I have some great news and some not so great news today...

The great news: I went to my first Weight Watchers meeting and I had a great time!! Everyone was so friendly and the leader even remembered my first name!!

The bad news: I have gained sooo much weight!! My first weigh in was 196.6. How depressing is that? I'm not going to let it bother me and bring me down. That just means I have to work a little harder!!

The bad news 2: I got a speeding ticket on my way to the WW meeting. I was going 10 miles over. This is my third ticket since I turned 16 about 10 years ago. Stupid cop!! LOL

Confession: I went over my points value today and have already had to dip in my extra weekly points.

Cheer: I tracked everything I ate today!! I was really happy with it being online and easy to access. I found myself enjoying counting points today!!

Storm before the Calm

Yah, yah, yah...I know the saying goes "The calm before the storm," but tomorrow night starts my official day of Weight Watchers.

Now I know what you are thinking...didn't you say a few posts ago that you were going to go ahead and start eating like you were already on WW?

Yah....I said that....but it hasn't really been that way. I am here to confess that I have eaten so horribly this week that tonight my stomach is on knots and is destroying me from inside. I guess I deserve it though for eating all of that crap.

Tonight my last hoorah before WW is cookies. I am also going to try and go all week without having a soda. So tonight I am having a Dr. Pepper. My favorite.

So, that is why this post is called the Storm before the Calm. Because I'm eating as if there is no tomorrow. I know that I can eat whatever I want to. That this is not a diet but a lifestlye change. But...this is hos it is going to be.

Go ahead and leave me horrible comments....I deserve them!! LOL

I will post about the WW meetng tomorrow night!!
