My First Week in Review

It has been my first week back at it! However I will start from Saturday, day 2 of being back at it! I made a delicious (if I do say so myself) anniversary dinner for my fiance and I. Roast chicken with veggies, Weight Watchers Corn Bread (which was only meh...little dry), and for dessert a lemon pie, also a WW Recipe, but this one was 2 thumbs up! I was off to a great start.

Until Sunday....I went Condo shopping with my parents (I am a real estate agent by trade) and by 1pm I was starving and they wanted Swiss Chalet. I forgot my WW eating out book so I was left to guess. I must have had a brain fart cause I ordered the Chicken Wrap and Ceasar Salad. I know it is common knowledge that restaurant Ceasar Salads are the worst, but for some reason, it slipped my mind when I placed my order.

Well lets just say that meal alone was about 30 points! I just blew through my flex points and to put it bluntly, felt like shit about it! Anyways, nothing I could do about it, it was already in my tummy. Live and bring my freaking book next time!
Anyways, the rest of the week was decent. Mad cravings but that is to be expected. I finally got on the scale this week and was down half a pound. I won't lie, I was dissapointed but at the same time, I am still down, even after a not so steller first week. AND THAT'S WHEN IT HIT ME!

Weight Watchers works, if you stick with it is really does, and even though I ate almost all my flex, I did not go over, I did not ruin my diet and I still lost. If I stop at any point, my journey stops and this weight will never come off. It was a setback, it sucks, but sometimes shit just happens. I am not going to let my mind get in the way of my body losing weight.

This is my resolve for this week. As I want the weight to come off fast, I am cutting the flex points in half to 25. This should speed up my weight loss to about a pound per week which keeps me motivated. This makes it harder but I have to keep in mind, I want to do it this way to lose it faster.

Now my only thought....why did I start this 4 weeks until Christmas...Stay tuned for Holiday Survival Guides and Mind over Taste Bud Cravings!


  1. glad to see you blogging again! I recently started a dieting again too and so many people have said, "why don't you just wait until after the holidays?" but there will always be a holiday, a birthday, a date night, a girls night out. If we can stick to it through Christmas we can handle all the other temptations to indulge. Right? Keep at it. I love your blog!

  2. I absolutely agree with you! I have an upcoming blog post to address these issues! Stay tuned and keep at it!
