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.

  1. You go, girl!

    It's hard to be perfect, but when you can say "yes, I had a weight-loss day", it feels so much better. As you saw with your jeans (yay!), every little bit counts.

    BTW, I find tea can be a substitute for boredom eating.

    Good luck!!!!

What's in my Purse? - Video

Hi Friends!

I just posted my first video on YouTube! I am so excited! I have watched YouTube videos for years and have always wanted to make my own. I finally got the courage to create one!

I really enjoy watching "What's in My Purse?" videos, so I thought this was fitting for my first.

Please visit my YouTube channel Lindsey Says Stuff, subscribe, and like the video!

XOXO,

January 6th - 10th

Those are the dates, the dates that the treadmill will be delivered. It is the 6th already. Where is my treadmill?
I know I shouldn’t be antsy, but I am. My husband’s daughter signed up for the ½ marathon and it got me thinking about doing that. Now, the ½ marathon is definitely out of me reach, but I am hoping by September that my husband and I will be able to participate in one of the Fort4Fitness races.
I can’t believe that I am writing this. I have been over-weight for more 10 years and I would have never imagined that I would even consider doing this for myself. This is the year. This is the year that I become myself again. I used to be so athletic and now, I couldn’t run for 5 minutes without stopping.
I am so looking forward to this treadmill and this training schedule. This is very exciting for me.
If only my treadmill would get here. :)
