Day #1

I joined Weight Watchers on June 24th, 2008. I started a weight loss blog somewhere else, but decided to switch to this instead. Here is my original post from the other site.

Well, here I am. Day #1. The start of my new life. I know that I have been here before, but I really feel like I am READY to do it this time. And I decided to start this blog not only to track my weight loss, but so that I can also have a journal, which I know is so important.
Motivated by my neighbour, Kathy, who has lost 55 pounds so far with Weight Watchers, I too joined this morning. I bought the 6-month package. I am commmitted. I only even considered it a few days ago and instead of hmmming and hahhhing and making excuses, I just decided to DO IT. There is no meeting next week because it’s Canada Day. I considered waiting and joining the following week. My parents are coming to visit for almost a week on Thursday. I considered waiting and joining later because of that too. But I didn’t!! I know I could do alot of damage in 2 weeks and instead I decided to join NOW!! I am so proud of myself!!

Now to get my head around all this POINTS stuff. I am sure I will get the hang of it quickly, but I have to say, it’s given me a headache. LOL!!

I weighed in at home this morning and was 188.5. At Weight Watchers I was 188.8 so I thought that was great that my home scale is so accurate!! My first goal is to lose 18 pounds - that’s 10% of my body weight. I would like to do this by August 5th. I am going to Toronto for the Epicure Selections® Leader’s Conference from August 8th-10th so I thought this was a good mini goal. Plus I get my 10% keychain from Weight Watchers!! My main goal is to lose 58 pounds and be 130 pounds. I can’t wait!!
