Losin' Weight and Feelin' Great!

Well, as of Monday I am officially a member of Weight Watcher's Online. I had been using my mom's account, but for some reason it stopped letting me access all the tools so I decided it was time to branch out on my own. The great part is that my friend, Carly, is also doing Weight Watcher Online. We're both online every day, so we've been supporting each other via gmail messenger constantly.

With that support, I've been motivated to work out every day this week so far. I've been keeping close track of my daily food points and I've been losing weight! Mondays are my weigh in day, and I'm SO excited to see what my weight is on Monday. I KNOW there's going to be a change, because I've done so well on eating right and working out.

But the best part is how good I feel, physically, mentally, and emotionally. I have so much more energy that I've been able to stop drinking soda. Now it's rare if I drink anything besides water most days! I want this to be a life-long change, because of how much better I feel. I'm getting less headaches, less stomach aches, and I'm less grouchy. Gotta love those endorphins!

The hardest part has been refusing the sweets at work. The other day was a coworker's birthday and there was the inevitable cake passed around. But I was able to resist, even when another coworker set a piece of cake down right next to me! I know saying no to that piece of cake will feel soooooooooo good when I see my weight on Monday!
