Weight Watchers

I decided to join weight watchers a week and half ago. So far I have done very well with this.
First week weight in 4.8 lbs lost. (Not bad) but only exercised once.
However this week, I am struggling a little.
I seem to be going back to that old habit of mine, boredom eating. As I have not (to this date) “cheated” but the urge is SO strong.

I decided to start blogging about the success in this weight loss because of this reason. I feel if I fill my life with talking and writing about my weight loss and things I want to accomplish, it will keep my mind motivated and on task. (Right? Or am I just kidding myself?)

Last night I had an epiphany though. I was able to for the first time in a week (I really mean two years and a week) to fit into a pair of jeans! Not a different size, but a different pair that was too small!!!! I was so excited about this! I couldn’t believe that in a week I had done just that little task. I felt very powerful and in control of my life, but that soon faded into boredom the next day. I don’t know why this happens to me. Do I really need to bring the clothes that I can’t fit into every where I go? Why is this so hard?
Frustration is how I feel.
My frustration for today is going to the gym. I know I need to go the gym, I know I should, but I really don’t want to.
Maybe it’s a little laziness right now that I feel.

Today: I will go to the gym! I will get into my car and go to the gym.
My workout goal: to walk 2 miles.
