Wow am I behind in posting?! Being back at work has really kept me busy. Not to mention having 2 kids running around, one of which has recently started kindergarten!

My big boy is doing so well in kinder, and he absolutely loves it! Of course it probably doesn't hurt that his teacher is gorgeous!! My mom saw a picture of her on Facebook and her comment was "they don't make teachers like they used to!" I asked her, "what am I, chopped liver!?!"

I started a new year in school as well and we're having a great time so far! I LOVE my classroom! It's very homey and welcoming!

My wonderful husband brought me flowers for my first day of school! :)

Last update, I am on my 5th week of doing Weight Watchers! I have lost 8 pounds so far, 1 more pound until my first 5% goal! It's nice to be able to see results! I am a planner so I plan out my meals ahead of time, always take my lunch to work, and track ALL of my points! I lost 2.4 pounds this past week and had a party AND went out to dinner for Ben's birthday! I'm so excited that I'm doing so well!!

Thanks for reading all about what's going on in my life! :)

Another pound down!!

At Monday night's meeting I found out I lost another 1.4 pounds! So exciting! It's coming off slow, but at least it's coming off. I even got up 30 minutes early this morning and did a mile on the eliptical! It was HARD to get up early and get going, and now I'm exhausted, but I feel good about myself. That's the main thing right? Feeling good about yourself?
I sure hope I can keep it up, my motivation seems to be short lived. I just really want to be thinner, healthier, and happier!
I'm getting much better at using my points wisely. I feel like I've eaten all day, and I still have 1.5 points left. I also had a point left over yesterday too.
Any more suggestions for me?

End of week 2

So it's the end of week 2 on WW, but haven't weighed in yet. I'll weigh in at the meeting tomorrow. I'm really nervous, don't know if I did as well as the first week. But I have incorporated some exercising in my plan now! I'm starting slow, doing the eliptical machine we have at home. I did also order 2 DVD's by Jillian Michaels doing the 30 day shred. So let's see how much I can shred!

My new favorite snacks are:
light, whole wheat english muffins
WW yogurts (only 1 pt)
94% fat free popcorn
fruit salad
whole wheat pitas, or cut up and made into pita chips to dip in homemade salsa
I'm still trying to find other snacks that are good for WW, if you have any suggestions I would love to hear them!!
