Week #2...

Week #2:  Lost .4 lbs.

I was disappointed with the small loss, but I was even more determined to make the next week a great one. It wasn't easy. Honestly, there were many times I wanted to throw in the towel and say "not now." With a new baby and going back to work-- didn't I have a good excuse to take one thing off my list of things to make sure are done and accounted for daily?

However, I couldn't give up. What really helped is getting my husband started on Weight Watchers with me. I taught him how to track points and how to measure his portions as well as calculating the points per servings. As I taught him these things, I remembered, this isn't some quick fix. It didn't take two weeks for the 40 lbs. to come back on. I need to have patience-- the one thing I struggle the most with in life. (Well, one of many things....)

If I set a realistic goal, then I have more to work towards. For me, it is getting back into my cute "skinny jeans" (skinny for me, at least) by Aug. 1. I'm not so much concerned about the number of pounds as I am looking and feeling good in clothes again. That's my goal-- then, when that's reached, new goals will come.
