End of Wk 1

Today is the WID, and I am a pound heavier. I think it's because of my TOM (I am so BLOATED right now. I'm not even bothering with my measurements. I'm watery everywhere. I know, TMI, but when you're cramping you want to let everyone know for some reason...). I had a moment of weakness yesterday afternoon at work (it was ugly...there were cupcakes, pies, brownies...) but I quickly recovered my sanity and passed the leftover sweets onto someone else. Sharing IS good! I've worked out pretty consistently this week, even going over my calories burned goal, so I KNOW that if I do the same thing next week, the scale will definately give me some good numbers.
Another coworker of mine commented about me looking like I'm losing alot of weight, which is funny because I am swollen everywhere (sorry. TMI). It's great hearing that. I'm learning so much more about myself and about my health...and I've come up with even better motivation for my weight loss.
My best friend, grandmother & mother are in the same boat I was in a few months ago. They want to lose their weight, but there's so many reasons why they haven't started, or why they haven't been consistent. InshaAllah, if I lose my weight they'll actually listen to me when I go on and on about SP, eating, and exercise and they'll be encouraged to lose their weight as well. Maybe we can even do it together!
Another thing keeping me going has been the Bootcamp and BL challenges. There's something about tangible incentives and people counting on you that makes you want to do better...well me anyway. So I'm praying that Allah (swt) continues to bless me and make this journey easy on me. ON TO WEEK TWO!
