It has been two weeks now that I have been on Weight Watchers. I have learned a lot about how utterly poor my eating habits actually are and how to modify them to live a healthier lifestyle. I still have a VERY long way to go and a LOT more to learn, but I have stuck with the plan for two weeks and have used hardly any of my weekly points, just my daily points.
So, last week I went to weigh in and was SOOOOO disappointed because I hadn't lost anything. Zero, Nothing, Nada. I was pretty upset because I did really well and stuck to the plan. The few mistakes that I made counting points or items I just added to my Weekly Point count.
This week I went in and weighed in and was so shocked. I lost 7.5 pounds. I am absolutely ecstatic. I would have been thrilled with 3 or 4 pounds, but 7.5 is incredible.
I have really cut down the diet soda to 1 or 2 per day instead of 6-8 per day. Even though they have no calories, the lack of water really hurt. Now I drink a ton of water and actually don't have much of a taste for soda.
I am sleeping better and last weekend woke up and got out of bed at 8:30 both days. Usually I would wake up 3 or 4 times throughout the night, get up around 11 or so and then take a nap in the afternoon. I haven't taken a nap since I started either.
It is amazing how much better I feel since I am not stuffing fast food into my craw on a near daily basis. I haven't had a cheeseburger since I started and I haven't missed it yet.
