Weigh in last night!

Last night I weighed in and lost 3.6 pounds! I am now down 11.6 since January 1st!
Also last night I definitely turned a new leaf in my life. I had a bit of a rough night, and normally I would have turned to food. Last night I took out my anger and frustrations at the gym. It was defintely a good way to "cope". I have been on the Weight Watcher message boards lately and LOVE the extra support there. After posting on there last night one response really stuck out in my head "Just remember that if hunger isn't the problem then food isn't the answer." I have now posted that on my fridge so it really makes me think twice when going to get a snack!
My goal this week is to make sure I judge if I am actually hungry, or if I am eating just to eat.
As always thank you soo much to everyone who is so supportive of me!!

WI day

I don't have too much to update on...I did weigh in tonight and lost .8. I was a little disappointed in such a small loss, however I have to look at it as a LOSS. It could be a gain!
I have now lost 8 pounds since "restarting" weight watchers. My goal is to lose atleast 2 pounds by next weigh in so i hit 10lbs :)
I have had a problem recently thinking of the "big picture". Thinking about how much weight I have to lose really gets me upset. I know i MUST start making small goals for myself, but that is soo easier said than done! I'm trying!
Also I want to thank everyone who has been soo supportive of my journey. Through comments on here, facebook, and in person I feel very supported and loved!
Goodnight all!

The Biggest Loser

So I havent really had too much to post Sunday or yesterday, so I thought I should update today.
Tonight I watched the Biggest Loser, which is huge motivation for me! I mean I watch some of these people who are almost DOUBLE what I weigh and they are working out so hard.
I have been working out, but I feel like I could be pushing myself much harder.
Starting with my next workout, I am going to make myself work harder, work out longer, and push myself to go up another level of intensity.
Also while watching tonight, I again thought of how much I would love to be able to work out with the trainers. I know going on the biggest loser is not a reality, but they do have a Biggest Loser Resort in California or Utah. It looks like an amazing place! Its basically being on the biggest loser without being on TV. Unfortunately I looked at the link on their website and the cheapest option is still near $2000.
I'll put a link on for anyone interested in what I'm talking about!
I know that this is not a realistic place for me to go to, but one can dream right :)

Here we go again!

A few years ago I attempted to follow in the footsteps of my mother and create a blog where I update a photo each day of the year. That lasted a whole 3 here It goes again!
For my first picture I'm uploading a picture I actually took a few weeks ago. As many of you know I have joined weight watchers and am working very hard at getting healthy! I wanted to have a "before" picture to be able to keep track of my progress, I'm not too proud of it but I know my hard work will pay off! I will occasionally load updates as I continue on this journey! I hope everyone has a safe,happy,HEALTHY New Year!
