WW Weigh-in #5

I lost 1.4 lbs this week. It may have been a little less. My scale was super wonky this morning. I had a really busy, really stressful week last week and we all know stress makes it hard to lose weight. The busyness didn't help either. I had a hard time getting all of my fruits and veggies in each day and my biggest downfall is that if I'm busy, I don't drink enough, so I didn't get all my waters in several days. I'm forcing myself not to be discouraged. I really figured I would settle in to losing 1 to 2 lbs. per week, so while these numbers aren't as stellar as the first couple of weeks, they are good numbers. I've always heard that it's easier to keep off if you lose it slowly. Most of my goals account for about a 5 lb. weight loss per month. I seem to be on track to do that. I want to lose 3.2 lbs. over the next 2 weeks. I think I'm on track to do that. I was excited because the tens digit on my weigh dropped another digit today. So that's the second one of those. For instance and of course these are not my actual weights. If I started at 271, then went down to the 260s and now am down in the 250s. See what I mean, that's exciting! Anyway, my small weeks may get boring to ya'll but they are adding up. I've lost 11.8 lb.s so far and people are beginning to notice a little. I have a long way to go, but I'll take my baby steps and hopefully soon I'll be adding in excercise.

Great job! Not drinking enough water is my problem! I know I don't drink any where near the amount you are supposed to!

Great job on your goals! I have some weight to lose also! Don't be discouraged about 1 pound weeks. It happens. Life is a journey; not an event.

Thanks so much for your input on my site. You are a beautiful woman inside and out. Don't forget it.
