Okay!! Yesterday was my first weigh in at Weight Watchers. I had a plan when I went to the meeting that I was going to take off all the little things I could before I got on the scale. So I went to the scale, I was nervous and just jumped on. I don't know why I was nervous I'm not usually. Maybe it was the pressure of having to put it on my blog that made me nervous. I got on the scale and I lost 6 lbs!!!! Woohoo!!!!! I knew I had put in all the hard work and stayed on target with my food points. I went to the meeting after I weighed in, then I realized I still had my sunglasses on my head, watch, 3 rings, and YES my gum was still in my mouth. What was I thinking??? I know that gum weighed a lot!! I started to stress that maybe I needed to weigh myself again because I might have lost another pound if I would have taken off all my jewelry and stuff. For some reason this really bothered me but I went home without asking to weigh in again.
I got home and had to weigh my "extra stuff". I pulled out my scale.....drum roll..........it was a whole 2.5 ounces. That's it??? Seriously??? I just knew my gum weighed that alone. Wow!!! I am so glad it only weighed that much. Why do I sweat the small stuff? I should be happy with losing the 6 lbs. I lost. Don't get me wrong, I am very happy that I lost that much in my first week. I just figured maybe I would have lost another pound if I had taken the small stuff off. Can you imagine when it's winter time and I have to wear jeans on the scale, I will really be panicked!! Lol!!
After my first weigh in I am 14 pounds away from my first goal, 2 weeks away from my next Tri, and 11 weeks away from NYC Marathon. I want to keep the momentum going!! I got a lot of running miles in this week, my highest week so far. I ran over 31 miles this week and biked 20 miles. I'm hoping to get in the pool at least 2-3 times this week and get in 2 -3 bike rides and of course several runs. Well enough rambling I need to get on my bike!!
