First Official WW Weigh In

So Monday is my designated weigh-in day.  I have been weighing myself almost daily because sometimes I need that extra boost of encouragement to keep going--keep doing what I'm doing.

Yesterday, I hit the 5 pound loss mark.  I was so excited, and I couldn't believe that I hit it that fast!  I know every week won't be like this, but wow, it really goes a long way and reinforces what I'm doing.

I get on the scale for my official weigh-in this morning, and what do I see?  That number has changed--I'm now officially down 6.5 pounds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  *insert crazy hyper happy dance*

Yesterday was the first day I was able to incorporate some "real" exercise into my day.  I went out and got Just Dance 2 for our Wii and tried it out.  It's awesome!  I didn't even realize how sore my arms were until each song ended.  With a normal workout, I would've noticed and would have been counting down the seconds until the workout was over.  I love that I can just turn it on and go, no shoes, no special equipment needed at all.

Dinner last night was whole grain wheat spaghetti with veggie sauce and extra lean ground turkey sausage.  I made it all then put it in a casserole dish and topped with cut up pieces of WW string cheese and baked.  It was yummy!!!  And I must say, I think that's the first time ever I've eaten spaghetti without garlic bread.  As much as I was dreading it, it wasn't that bad.  I'm a bread freak, and I knew that if I made the bread, I wouldn't be able to keep it at just one piece, so I decided to skip it all together--and I survived!!!!

Here's to hoping that this week goes as well.  The first week can be fun and adventurous.  I'm determined to make this week just as much fun and exciting!


  1. For garlic bread, you should get the frozen texas toast that is in individual pieces. That way you can literally only make one piece for yourself. That's what we do, because if I buy one of the loaves, I will eat the whole thing.
