My thankfuls...

So all month of November I'm going to try and update my blog every day about what I'm thankful for. I never use my blog anymore just because I've had a lot happen to me these past couple months and didn't want to complain all the time or put something I'd regret later on.

Day 1: I'm thankful for my daughter. She's my whole world. I've watched her grow into a rambunctious toddler these last 20 months. It was great staying at home with her for so long. She's getting so smart and picks up on things so easily. She cracks herself up, along with everybody else all the time. She's an great eater. She's good natured, happy, and demanding. I'm so glad I have such an amazing little girl!

2 Pounds down!...

I have lost 2 pounds so far! I know it's not a lot but it's better than nothing and I am eating way better. So even if I didn't loose weight I would be proud with myself. Being on weight watchers isn't as hard as I first thought it was going to be. It has gotten way easier and I'm so glad I'm trying it out. Week 1 seemed like it took forever but now I know what I'm doing with the points system so it should pick up! Lol. I have a ton more weight to loose but I know I have to do something more than just watching what I eat. So now I have to get on that one! Wish me luck :-)

Weight lose diary...

The next couple of months I am going to use my blog to track my weight lose. Hopefully I will have some success at it! I decided to join Weight Watchers after talking to a friend and she told me that she had lost weight after only two weeks of being on the program. I really want to loose 20-25 pounds and figured since she was doing it, she could help me through it. I love that I can eat what I want and can (hopefully) loose weight while doing it!

DAY 1:
Tuesday was my first day on the program. I'm allowed 26 points every day. I ate 1/2 banana bread that morning. That thing was 3 points!!! It would have been 6 if I would have ate it all. It's crazy seeing food you ate all the time and realizing you could eat all your points in one sitting. I got a salad for lunch with Italian dressing. Horrible salad. It tasted dirty so I barely ate it. For snack I found that I could have salsa (0 points) and tostitos (4 points for 7 of the restaurant style). I was very happy about this! I love chips and salsa and it's not many points! I finished the evening with a veggie dog, sweet potato fries and a Popsicle. Can you believe I still had 7 points left!!! I could have had a beer :-)

DAY 2:
I'm getting better with the whole point system. I didn't eat breakfast this morning. Lunch was a pb sandwich and grapes. For dinner I had a veggie burger with cheese and without a bun, and chips and salsa. I also got an unsweetened tea at sonic in the afternoon since its 0 points. After I went grocery shopping, I was craving something sweet so I had a scoop of ice cream I had bought before I joined WW. It was 5 points but I still finished the day with 3 left so I was good to go.

I finally went shopping and got a ton of fruits and veggies so now it will be a little easier. They are 0 points so I shouldn't have a problem with staying under every day. Let me know if you have any advice. Thanks! :-)
