First Weight Watchers Weigh-In

I am so proud of me. There hasn't been a time as of lately that I have really said that. I've been proud of my family and my accomplishments, but I would be lying if I said that I have been proud of ME. Well today, I am proud of me. I had my first week weigh in at weight watchers and I lost....wait for it... wait for it.... 7.4 lbs!!! YES! ME! I stuck to it and I did it. And I did it and didn't feel deprived. Didn't feel hungry. I am so proud of me to sticking to it this week. I have a long way to go, but my short term goal is 11 lbs and I feel as though I can do that. I KNOW I can do that. As annoying as posting my weight watchers intake everyday must be, I will continue to do that because I know its truly helping me reach my goal. And even though I almost died yesterday in my 1 mile run, I know that all I have to do is strive to be a little better than I was before. To make good choices when it comes to food, but if I do make a bad choice, to own up to it and get back up on the saddle. That has been my downfall before. I feel as though I mess up, so I throw my hands up in the air and just mess up completely. Well not anymore. I am going to make this a lifestyle change. Today I got more motivated then I've ever been before. I also think looking at all those weight loss shows help condition my mind a bit. I met such a sweet person today at my meeting today. I swear if I had blonde hair and blue eyes, I would be her. We share the same story with food. The same type of relationship. The same feelings of self deprecation and guilt when we aren't on target.  And thing is, when you see her, she is absolutely stunning! Just beautiful. Makes me sad that us women do that to ourselves. That I've done that to myself. But we exchanged numbers and I hope to encourage her the way Danielle has helped encourage me. It is so much easier to be able to do this journey with someone who understands. My husband is the MOST encouraging, supportive, amazing person in this entire world, but he farts out a pound. He can be supportive in regards to his words and actions, but I need someone to be going through it with me. And of course, blogging always helps.
So anyways, here is my intake for yesterday. I did VERY well. I was under by 7 points last night :)

My points went down from 32 to now 31. I am not sure what I plan on cooking tonight. I'm thinking the Enchilada zucchini boats OR Zucchini fries and something else delicious. Thanks to Skinnytaste.com I have SOOO many choices and its been making this process alot more fun. No more bland ass pale chicken breast with brown rice for me! WHOOT WHOOT!
