My first Weight Watchers weigh-in was this morning and I'm down 4.4 pounds. Can I hear an amen?!?
So the tracking, going to meetings and eating more fruits and vegetables strategies worked. Imagine that! It feels so good to finally have a successful weight-in.
For months I was going to the gym four or five days a week and working my butt off but continued to watch the number on the scale climb. The problem was, for as hard as I was working, I wasn't paying attention to what I was eating. Exercise alone didn't cut it. I have no choice, I have to journal my food, count my points and plan ahead for meals. This is the only way I'm going to lose the weight that I've acquired around my midsection. I'll continue to exercise, but I now know that I can't rely on exercise for weight loss.
