Hopefully, anyway. In the middle of freaking out about my finances, and sharing embarrassing stories about myself, I forgot to share with you one of the newest developments in my life: I am trying to lose weight. I’m not using a top diet pill, joined Weight Watchers.
Actually, it wasn’t so much forgot as it was I thought I might not tell you right away. I thought I’d tell a few close friends that I needed for support and then tell everyone else when I actually made some progress. I should have known better. I’m not one to keep secrets. At least, not one to keep my OWN secrets. Yours I will take to the grave. But noone who keeps a personal blog is to keen on keeping their lives private. Hence why I share with you my exact financial position and the fact that there is generally a pile of tissues behind my bed. And now, I will share with you that I am, once again, attempting to lose weight.
I do have progress pictures and measurements. I do know my exact weight. I have not, however, decided whether or not to share those particular details, at least not yet. Knowing me, I will before too much longer.
In any case, it has now been one full week since I joined weight watchers and bought a new scale (the purchases tell you this was prior to my money freakout) and so I had my first weigh in this morning.
*drum roll please*
I am down…
4.8 pounds! Woohoo! I have 7.7 lbs to go to get to my first small goal, and well, a whole lot more to get to my ultimate goal. Weight watchers is designed to help you lose 1-2 pounds a week, so I know I’ll settle into that rhythm within a couple of weeks. This initial success is very motivating, however!
