So I have been doing Weight Watchers for just under 5 weeks (again) and have lost 7 lbs so far. Hope to do well at the 5th weigh in on Tuesday after exercising 3 times this week…including walking/running a 5k tonight which included hills while FI ran it pushing our almost 10 month old. I think I’m finally to the point where I have motivation to lose and exercise. I want to lose about another 36 lbs by the wedding in early May but that means 1.3 lbs a week between now and then.
Ok thanks for letting me get my excitement out!

Congrats! Also, 1.3 pounds a week is totally doable — the holidays are coming, which can trip anyone up, but I’d put money on you hitting your goal if you’re consistant. 🙂

Go girl! I’m getting married the weekend after you and am doing the same thing–getting serious about all this. I’m working with a personal trainer and did a crazy overhaul of my diet as well.
And I’m down 7! 🙂
Balboa mentioned the holidays. FI and I just discussed this and decided that we will allow ourselves to indulge ON the holidays, but not bring any leftovers home for any reason. Maybe that would work for you too if you’re worried. 🙂

Thanks ladies! Yeah definitely a little worried about the holidays. My family will be easier because my FI and my mom are also doing WW. Fi’s mom tends to…not be very encouraging of this and almost seems to sabotage. Not sure what the plans with FIs fam is at this point anyway so I may not have to worry too much especially since I don’t really like how they cook their Thanksgiving meal and it will be the second meal for us. I will definitely have to consider no taking leftovers home.

It’s really hard to say no on the holidays. There’s always an “occasion,” an excuse to indulge. Stay strong! Someone might say something discouraging, but you can do this!
That said, I definitely agree ItsAshleyDay…give yourself the actual holiday day to celebrate. Holidays are meant to be celebrated after all, but do keep it just to that one day. It won’t be easy, but you limit how much ‘bad’ food you eat AND you still get to indulge a little so you don’t go crazy later on because you’re feeling deprived.
Good luck! 🙂
