New Year, new blog.

So this year and this is no joke, I am losing 80lbs. I started on Sunday with weight watchers and I am now on day 3. So far so good. I am drinking more water with lemon ( 0points!) most the time. I have found some really great recipes that I am going to be trying out this week. I think I might go to Salinas tomorrow to do some cheap grocery shopping. If I don't then I am sure I will be heading to the beach. It has been splendorous here this week and I am taking advantage of it.

I think as part of a new years resolution I will be starting to blog at LEAST once a week if not more. If I make it a habit then I am sure that I will be able to do more with it. It will help me see when and where I need to focus my energy to help me with my weight lost goals. If I do this then I will be able to have yet another tool to have in the palms of my hand to help. 

This week I am going to start the cooking more of the weight watchers recipes. I REALLY think that the 0 point veggie soup is the way to go. I can make a bunch and then freeze some of it for later. Plus they have these little meatballs that look great. 

On another note I am of course working out so far I have done two days in a row! I will also be getting the Biggest loser Wii fit game by next week (i just ordered it) so that I have new work out routines to do as well as bob and jillian to yell at me if I screw up! I can't wait to try it! I think it is better the the EA sports active. Wish me luck on all the new adventures!!!!

Hi there!

Great idea to blog on this new adventure in weight loss! I did weight watchers before, and had some results, they do teach you good habits :) Try to not go too crazy on "zero" points foods, as they really are not and they add up when you have too many, focus on balancing your diet more, don't be afraid of starches and be honest with yourself - half a banana is still half a banana! Also, the extra points per week that they give you: eat them, your weight loss will be steadier. Good luck and keep fighting even when you have a set back! :)

Thanks to you for the info. I have been eating some starches. And I had 3 bowls of the soup last night but i was sure to put in that i had 3 serves so it did add up my points for me.

I have been on a salad kick for quite a while even before weight watchers and I am just using less dressing then before but I am not changing the dressing. I like it. And it is not ranch or anything over fatty. It is a vinaigrette. Thank goodness i don't like the the ranch anyway. :-) I appreciate all the support.
