Weight Watchers - game on

I signed up today for Weight Watchers. I am going to go to meetings this time, but track everything online. I feel I will get the best of both worlds this way.

Because I didn't weigh in first thing in the morning -- that is, pre-food, pre-beverage, post-morning potty break, and sans clothes -- my weight was higher than I would usually report. My official WW weight is 263. This morning my scale said 259.8. I buy that my breakfast and clothes weigh about 3 lbs., so I trust their scale. It's only a starting point, and if I follow the program the number will go down.

One of the things I regretted somewhat when I started WW in the spring was that I did not take any before pictures. Now, granted, I was mortified of what they looked like so taking any pictures -- let alone those that were intentionally unflattering in, say, a swimsuit? That was out of the question. However, I was able to dig a photo out of the vault to give you some idea what I looked like...but, believe it or not, I think I looked even worse at my highest weight.

To avoid that same feeling of remorse, I took some photos of my StartingPoint 2.0. I guess those full length mirrors at the gym are good for something...

Trouble area? Belly. Totally. Also, chins #2-5. It's ok though -- this is a starting point. It's all downhill from here, assuming I work hard and stay on the plan. Get my fitness on, get my food tracking on, and say goodbye to the chins. Adios, baby.


  1. I know you don't think so at the moment but I think you look great! You're doing awesome so far! P.S. great pants! Very flattering. I have yet to find the black stretch work out pant that doesn't make me look like I have thunder thighs!

  2. Thanks Lisa. Old Navy pajama pants. I clearly have ZERO shame :)

  3. Sarah, good for you putting up a picture. It gives you something to go by. In the long run, you will be glad. Oh, I'm on the diamond board, by the way.

  4. Thanks for stopping by Teresa. Yes, I am excited to see some results and post some new pictures later in the year!
