Weigh In Day!!

...and I am a Happy Camper! This morning's weigh in was 196.4 for a loss of 7.2*!!! YES!! I am happy. So far the WW is working and I'm actually enjoying it. I don't feel like I'm not getting enough to eat. I'm eating food I like. I haven't even added 'excercise" yet. So I think I will do even better if I can get off my butt and do that too.

**on a side note...I don't think the starting weight of 203.6 was entirely's what the scale said the day I started but I think my starting weight was more around 198/199.. so I doubt I really lost 7.2. But I still lost at least a couple of pounds so I'm happy!

Also I've updated my stats....I have an initial Goal Weight of 188.1 . That's just my First Goal of 5% based on WW. I plan to lose much more. But taking baby steps.

Today's Lunch

Doing pretty well so far. This was only 6.5 points and I had a small breakfast so I did ok today. Or we'll see once I factor in the Dinner I ate tonight. I still have a lot of flex points left though. So I'll be ok. Lunch was an Enchilada type thing. My son made them last night. It was actually pretty good. And I had Dole Fall Harvest Salad with a sprinkling of Feta for a side.

So Far So Good

Things are going pretty well. I decided to sign up for WW Online and try my hand at counting 'Points" again. I did WW a few years ago and I've done it off and on on my own and gotten some results. Let's see if I can stick it out. I'm not sure that I'll be hardcore WW, but they do have some sensible ideas, so I think I can work with it. Today is only my second day of keeping track of my points. Yesterday was good. I used exactly the amount of my daily allotment. Here's my lunch for today:

Half a left over Pork chop from last nights dinner( this was to DIE for..delicious), about a cup of Dole Perfect Harvest Salad with a sprinkling of Feta Cheese, and half a slice of homemade herb bread ( made yesterday). It was very filling and very delicious. I think it came to about 7.5 points.

The Plan

Now on to the "Plan" really not to do any real "Plan"....the main thing I plan to do is start adding Healthy Habits to my life Day by Day...I would like to eat cleaner...and will try to incorporate Eating Clean and Moving Everyday. One thing that motivated me recently was the Simple Steps Book.....It had 10 weeks worth of Simple Steps to take to take control of your life and that's pretty much how I plan to handle the weightloss....simple day at a time.

So what is my first 'Healthy Habit"? Drink more water.....I've actually been doing this for a while although with the Holidays and parties and teens being home ... I've been slacking off and drinking soda back to drinking MORE water and less soda...

One More Time...

So here I am yet again trying to lose this weight and starting a new blog.....I think this is my third attempt at doing a Weightloss Blog.....third times a charm????

So here's what the scale has to say today.....I'm not sure It's really all that accurate as lately I've been hovering around 198...but since I'm 'Officially" Starting today....and this is what the scale says today...I'm going to state this as my "Official" Starting Weight....
