Refusing to be Weighed Down

I recently posted on this blog about my weight loss struggles.  Heck, if you've read this blog at all, you know that it's not just this year that I've talked about my weight issues.  It's a song that seems to be stuck on repeat.

I don't know if I mentioned it on here, but a week ago, I took a big step and (re)joined Weight Watchers.  I had gone to WW several years ago, and had actually lost a lot of weight.  Then, for a reason I can't even remember, I stopped going.  And over the last several years have gained a lot of the weight back.  So, I decided that instead of moaning and complaining about it, I would go ahead and do something about it.

A lot has changed since last time I went to weight watchers, and I was definitely a little overwhelmed when I went back.  The hardest part was changing my mindset and actually eating more points than I had eaten the last time I was on the program.  But, I stuck to it this week, wrote everything down, and worked hard.  And, in the end, it paid off. 

When I weighed in this morning I had lost 3.6 pounds!  It is just a drop in the bucket of my big goal, but it is a good drop.  It gave me the motivation to keep going this week, and made me believe, for the first time in a long time, that I can definitely do this!  I can lose the weight.  And, this time, I will keep it off for good!

Tonight I am celebrating my 3.6!  I used a few of my extra points and ate a chocolate chip cookie tonight.  And, I don't feel guilty about it right now!

Here's to another week and another big loss!
