09 May 2011 My First Weigh In
 |  Category: health

Last Wednesday I vlogged a little bit about what is going on in my life on a very personal level. I’m excited to see the outcome over the next 3 months. You can watch it here…

The only motivation I have right now to get healthy is that I want to feel better about myself. That motivation doesn’t get me excited to work out and eat healthy, but it’s enough to force myself to make better decisions.

Last Monday I started counting calories and on Wednesday I joined Weight Watchers. Last Monday I also started Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred. I did day 8 today, moving up to level 2 for the first time. Both have taken lots of self discipline to do, and so far it’s paying off.

So after living this new way for a week I’ve lost…*drum roll please…* 8 lbs!

With being a fan of The Biggest Loser, I’m expecting a low number next week, which is probably healthy. Although I do believe on the Weight Watcher’s site it said the average to loose “after the first 3 weeks” is 1-2lbs. I’d be pretty pumped if I can loose quite a bit more in the next 2 weeks. It didn’t seem too hard to loose these first 8lbs while my body is just in shock from doing something healthy for the first time in a LONG time. Most of my struggle is how long it takes me to figure out what I can eat, and what to cook for dinner. I was about to eat some cheesy noodles with the rest of the family and put myself 3 points over my daily allowance, but I opted out and got more salad which made me hit my daily allowance perfectly.

I’m signed up with Weight Watchers for 3 months, and I’m praying I can stick with it. We’ll see what happens. I’m not sure how much I’ll blog about it, but I’m planning on making weekly videos on my youtube channel.
