Today is my "official" day for weight in's. I joined Weight Watchers Online in March (i think) to help boost my weight loss, because apparently i wasn't doing something right and wasn't loosing any weight on my own.
I weighed in this morning about 30 minutes to a hour after i woke up... and i weighed in stark naked. Officially, i am now 148.4 pounds (and down to 20 points a day). I'm pumped! 13 more pounds to go till I'll be at my happy weight! (Although, I remember when i got pregnant with my second child... i had hit the 150 mark and was actually excited to be pregnant because that meant that i would be skinny again soon. Sadly, pregnancy is my best diet although I don't advise loosing weight like that.)
After getting some getting some surprise news this morning, i feel even more empowered to get these last pounds off (lets just say i want to look my best next month... lots going on and i want to look good again, if for nothing else other than to say "I'm hot" and know that i am).
So in a frenzy to know something that i don't already know about weight loss, i googled the web on how to lose weight quickly. You know what i came up with? Exactly the same stuff WW stands behind:
*drink lots of water
*eat lots of fiber
*consume more good fats
*get plenty of quality protein
*carbs can help you lose weight
*DON'T skip breakfast
I'm starting to learn the ropes of this weight loss thing and knowing what works for me and what doesn't. I need to eat breakfast, even if it's just a little something. If i don't, then i feel off the rest of the day. I try to put off lunch as late as possible without it going too far into the day, in hopes of curbing the late afternoon munchies, which is my biggest problem time of the day. Dinner isn't a big deal for me. By the time dinner roles around, I'd rather not eat. My biggest problem is that i LOVE dinner. It tends to contain the foods i love the most (and i absolutely love the chicken trick... i do that a lot to and the kids and hubby love it that way the best too) and the highest calorie/fat meal of my day. Not a good combo so late at night. It's hard trying to keep my way of life going the way i need it to and have a family who "needs" all the extra calories they can get.
Things i really need to do:
*drink much more water. I used to be pretty good at this... now not so much
*exercise more. Use the elliptical. Walk more. Just get out and play with my kids instead of watching them from a chair while reading.
