You know when you write a brilliant blog post in your head on your way to work and you really could have typed it out on your blackberry and you started to, but it was too freaking cold so you didn’t and all you were left with when you got to your destination was, “Where does that leave me? Well, right at the beginning, really.”
Um, yeah. How fitting.
So here I am. 3.7lbs down on my first week back on Weight Watchers Online.
Part of me is doing my happy dance, shaking my big ol’ hips from side to side and part of me is disappointed Biggest Loser styles, as I am known to have a 5lb loss my first week back on program.
But dems da breaks.
I still have 20 some odd weeks on the X-weighted challenge to go. I have set a goal to get back under an hour running a 10km, something I have been MORE disappointed with than not being able to lose 5lbs (because I should give my head a shake there or a smack, really). I’ve posted my before pics on the challenge site (I will only LINK to them as research [and by research I mean having an actual conversation] has shown that my father will only read posts on here that include pictures and I don’t feel like torturing my dad, but just in case, Hi Daddy!) and the challenge has told me that I only need to lose 17lbs.
17 FREAKIN LBS.
Here I am thinking I need to lose like 30lbs.
This could be a lot less daunting than I thought. Things are TRULY easier when you break them into smaller, more manageable goals.
So here’s to 26 weeks and 17lbs.
or 16 now.
