Food Reboot

Starting January 1st, I decided to get serious about losing the 17 pounds I sadly let creep back on after losing 50+ pounds of pregnancy weight.

I’m trying not to beat myself up about it, but I’m disappointed in myself.

Since January 1st, I have done a good job (I think a pretty darn good job) of getting my exercise, steps and work outs in.

But the weight did not change.

A friend said she wanted to return to weight watchers and needed motivation.

Well, things are easier with a buddy, so I bought a 6 month pass.

No excuses.

Then a friend in California decided to do it, so now I have two WW buddies.

The plan has changed since I did it 4 years ago (I became pregnant with my daughter 5 months postpartum so I had to stop the program).

I like the changes they have made!

Boy, has the point system been eye opening for me.

Those “healthy choices” I thought I was making?

Not so much.

I can’t tell you how many times I have put something down after seeing the point value and reached for an apple or orange instead.

I used all my daily points and a few weekly points and never felt hungry.

I walked almost every day, went to my Monday night spin class and did a few 21 Day Fix workouts.

Today was weigh in day.

Down 6.2 pounds!

I know that is just the “first week rush”, but it is darn motivating!

I also am trying to expand our dinner repertoire here at Summer Street.

This weeks choice, Skinnytaste’s Korean Chicken.

SOOOOO good!

I broiled it and had it for dinner and lunch the next day with some roasted asparagus.

Definitely a keeper, especially when we have the grill set up for the summer!

Hope to report there is less of me next Saturday!

Have a good week!
