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
