The weight, I am watching it!

So I joined Weight Watchers a couple of weeks ago. Yep, I finally took the plunge. It was time to get serious about eating better and exercising. It was hard because I had grown accustomed to eating treats more often than was, um, prudent. It was hard: first I had the excuse of being pregnant and then the even better excuse of having just had a baby. Also, this wonderful bakery opened near my house. It's SO good! Yeah, for a while I was going a couple of times a week for lunch (and the chocolate peanut butter cheesecake or a cupcake). Some of the staff even know me by name (hi, Katy).

So yeah, it was time to do something. My first goal is to lose 19 pounds. The first week I lost 5.4 lbs., 1.4 lbs. the second week, and 1.2 lbs. this last week. It's been going pretty well, although I have to admit that I've been slacking off on writing down everything I eat. But I am eating better (I miss you, Katy!) and I'm exercising 3 or 4 times a week. Of course I'm looking foward to being thinner, but I also want to be in better shape and have more energy to do things and run around with E.

I'm just trying to keep motivated and be positive about it.
