Week One Update - Down 7.2 Pounds!

I knew that losing 100 pounds would not be easy on my own. I had never been a big fan of Weight Watchers, mostly because I don't like going to those type of meetings. I know that a lot of people love them and they are a huge help, but I knew I would always find an excuse NOT to go to them. That's just me.

However, Weight Watchers now has an entirely ONLINE program, which is right up my alley. I loved taking classes online - so I decided to check it out. And as you can see by the subject of this post, IT'S WORKING!

To lose weight, you really have to get into the mindset that it is a LIFESTYLE CHANGE, not a diet. WW gives you the tools to make it a lifestyle change - and it really isn't hard. It is flexible enough that you can still live your normal life and eat well too.

My biggest wakeup call was when I typed in the food I might normally eat in a day, tallied it up, and realized it was over 3-4 times more POINTS® than I should have been eating! Wow. Now that I know what to look for, it is easier to make better choices - and still not be hungry!

AND THE BEST PART - I can still have chocolate. :-)
