Weight Watchers Wednesday

Hello All!  So, since I missed WeightWatchers Wednesday last week, I thought I would first update you with how I am doing on my weightloss.  I am happy to report that last week I lost 1 pound and this week, I lost 1.6 pounds.  This brings me to a total weightloss of 8.6 pounds.  I am pretty happy with that, but I have to say that on other diets, I have lost the weight much faster.  Let's be honest though, that's probably the reason I am on a diet right now.  It all happened too quickly and I gained the weight back just as fast as I lost it.

This week's topic is Daily Tracking...see, WW really encourages daily tracking of everything you eat, much like other diet/health plans.  They feel that if you write things down, you are more likely to stick to the plan.  This is probably the part of this lifestyle change that I struggle with the most.  I'll be honest, I actually hate writing down what I eat.  I don't like taking the time to do it, I don't like the fact that I sometimes forget to write things down and then I have to go back and try to figure it out, and I don't like having to carry around my little food journal.  However, after a few days last week of just refusing to write down the food that I eat, I quickly realized that I am much more focused when keeping my food journal up to date. 

Is this something I will do forever?  Probably not...however, during this time of trying to actually LOSE weight and not just maintain, I think I better stick to the daily tracking...afterall, I still have 9.4 pounds to go before I am my GOAL weight!  =)
