Weigh In Wednesday

Today is my first weekly weigh in for my Shrinking Into Summer Challenge with the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans. I am REALLY excited to announce my numbers. Here goes:

Start Weight: 180
Week One Weigh In Weight: 177.9
Total Loss: 2.1 pounds!!!!

The Good: I met my exercise goal for the week. I exercised 4 out of the 7 days of the week. I am really proud of myself for this, because it was hard to be consistent after my month long exercise hiatus. Several nights I was very tired and SOOOOO tempted to go to bed early instead. But I didn't. I am also loving my water pilates class. Some great toning is going on with this!

Remember those pants that were tight? They still aren't back to normal, but definitely feeling looser.

The Bad: Eating healthy while cooking for your family is hard. Especially when your husband is really picky. I try to use very healthy cooking methods, but some of the things I serve because they are easy/quick and cheap (like tater tots) are probably stuff I shouldn't eat. I am going to try and substitute a salad for myself on these days.

The Ugly: It was my brother's birthday on Sunday, and I ate a piece of peach pie with whipped cream on top. And yesterday? I ate an M & Ms monster cookie. Argh. I felt SO guilty afterwards. On the other hand, when I totally deny myself foods, I tend to binge later. So I am going to try and just move on, and focus on my two pounds that ARE GONE!

My goal for this week is to up the exercise to 5 days. I can't "weight" to see if it helps!

Way to go, Christy!! I'm so proud of you! 2.1 pounds is GREAT for your first week. Way to go on getting your workouts in. I know how hard that can be.

It's true that if you deny yourself, you'll end up feeling deprived and binge. I do it when I feel that way. That's one thing I love about Weight Watchers! I can have it, but I have to count it.

Good luck this week! I know you'll rock the Sisterhood Challenge!!

Great job on the loss! That's awesome!

You totally shouldn't deny yourself, just try to be mindful!

Good luck this week!
