I started Weight Watchers again two weeks ago. It's time. My starting weight is 175 pounds. I'd like to lose about 30 pounds. So far, it's going really well, I've lost about 4 pounds. Only 26 to go! haha...
I took some "before" photos the other day while we were at my in-laws
house. Looking at that side view - oh my. I totally look pregnant, don't
I? I'm not. It's probably due to the fact that I had five babies in
seven years (and the fact that I really love to eat large quantities of
chocolate!). Hopefully, once the weight comes off and I do a bunch of
sit ups, my tummy will flatten out a little bit.
I bought this pretty journal and have been tracking what I am eating, writing down every little thing I put in my mouth. And I gotta tell you, doing this really helps!
I know I can do this.
I lost 90 pounds after Joseph was born.
(You can see my before and after photos here (at 230 pounds) and here (at 140 pounds)).
So, I am just gonna buckle down again and say no to that second helping. And not give in to emotional eating. Bottom line is - as much as I like to think that food will bring me comfort when I'm sad or stressed, it just won't. It ends up hurting me in the long run.
Only God's presence in my life can truly satisfy!
I'd love your prayers for me as I try to become healthier. :)
