Weight Watcher Wednesday

As some of you know, I started Weight Watchers two weeks ago today.  I lost 2 pounds the first week, and 1 pound this past week.  I know with WW it is slow weight loss, but typically it stays off.  I am thrilled with my weight loss because I never thought I'd get to this weight.  I always thought I'd be the weight I was...because that was just 'what I weighed.'  Man oh man was I wrong!  I am so happy to be at a below 'baby weight' weight.  Heck, I am smaller now than before I had kids!! When I go shopping I still grab larger sizes and get them to the dressing room and think, "Duuuh."  I'm not used to being smaller and it has been over a year.

I'm not posting this to brag.  You guys know me...I'm not a bragger AT ALL.  I want to encourage people that think it is too hard, or they can't do it.  I did it, and am still doing it!!!!  I splurge, drink my red wine, eat Mexican food and still maintain/lose weight.  I hope to lose 8 more pounds.  If I get to that weight I will be so super duper happy. 

I'm excited to say that a handful of twitter friends are also doing WW.  This helps me too because we can swap recipes!  I got 2 recipes last night via twitter...whoop whoop!

Last night Gary made tostadas for us.  He is counting points also, so this helps me a ton.  The kids ate the same thing we did, but they wanted it wrapped in a tortilla.

  The picture isn't that great, I took it with my iPhone.


Here is what Gary and I ate:

7 points total

 3 Old El Paso tostada shells = 4 ww points

1/2 cup of Bush's fat free refried beans (divided 3 ways) = 2 ww points

1/4 cup of low fat shredded cheddar cheese = 1 ww point

shredded lettuce, tomatoes, onion and
Kroger brand Taco sauce = 0 points

Happy Wednesday!

Way to go!!!! I need to lose about 5 more pounds, and oh my word is it coming off slow. Nothing to do with all the chocolate and goodies I've been eating here lately, oh no no no. :P

Congrats, and I say anyone who loses weight deserves the right to brag! Anyhoo, I have a friend who has lost 100 lbs on ww. She still does it to maintain her wt, exercises, and tries to do right because she had a wt problem even as a child. Friday's are her cheat days. She has fried chick livers (yuck) for lunch from a local restaurant, and either mexican or chinese for supper. I exercise with her, and need to be doing the ww with her. WW does have some really good recipes.

That sounds so yummy and I love that it is so low in points! I need to get back on the WW train. I lost around 40 pounds after I had Grant doing WW and it really wasn't that hard either. I just need to get the motivation to get started again:)

i did weight watchers when lily was 8m old and lost 15lbs. i planned to do it again 2 weeks ago when reid turned 6w (we could have started it together) but i chickened out...i like eating bad. so it's my fault when i realize how far i could have come in 2 weeks and be pleased w/my belly again. ugh! maybe you'll motivate me!
