Weight Watchers - Week 4

 Week 4 done! I can't believe in a couple of days it will be a month since I started weight watchers. It's gone by so fast! 

Usually when you're trying to lose weight it seems like time slows down. This is probably because usually you lose weight by dieting AKA eating gross foods and hardly any of it. So you're hungry and grouchy and can't wait for it to be over. But since weight watchers isn't a diet, I've just been living my life normally. Yes I track everything I eat on my IPhone app but that takes only a few minutes out of my day. 

It almost feels like I'm cheating because I'm still enjoying things like; white bread, pasta, ground beef, sweets, regular mayonnaise, and chips. You name it and I can eat it, just a healthier portion and not all on the same day. ;)
Wow I'm starting to sound like a Weight Watchers commercial! HA!

Last weeks goal was to go on a walk 3 days and drink 24 oz of water a day. Well I walked 2 times and drank water 4 out of 7 days. The water intake is still a struggle for me, but I'm not giving up. Hopefully if I stick to it, drinking water will just be part of my normal day and I won't have to force myself.

So here's how this week went...

Start Date:  Jan. 5, 2012
Starting Weight: 198

Today's Date: Feb. 2, 2012
Current Weight: 189.6

Week 4 = LOST 1.2 pounds
Total Loss = 8.4 pounds gone!
HELLOOOOOO 180's!!!  
I'm pretty excited!! I know I've said it before...but IT'S WORKING! The pounds are coming off, slowly but surely. I cannot WAIT to join 24 Hour Fitness in a week! I'm excited to add working out 3 days a week to my schedule.

 Week 5 Goal: Drink 24 oz of water a day and go for a walk 3x. (This will continue to be my goal until it isn't a goal anymore and is just part of my routine)

Good job!! I think working out at the gym will increase your weeky weight loss too and make you feel awesome! You're doing great! I totally feel like I'm cheating! Yesterday I had a subway sandwich and cookie and made pizza for dinner and had wheat thins, laughing cow cheese, fruit and snapple somewhere in the middle... I was so stuffed by bedtime but still lost weight. I love this program. Keep up the good work!
