First Weigh In!!!

   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!!


  1. Wahooo! Love to read about sucesses at WW.

    There is a woman at my regular meeting who is a lifetimer at goal and says she has been wearing the same black shirtwaist dress to her monthly weigh in for 35 years!

    It is funny to watch people shed their jewels and belts before they get on the scale. Yep, I do it too... and never eat before a morning weigh.

  2. You are doing awesome! That is great prep for the marathon!

  3. You're doing sooooo good!! Don't beat yourself up, just keep on looking forward! You can do it!! I believe you can! Now, lets go hammer out some more tough miles this weekend.
