Day 1 of Weight Watchers

Wow...trying yet again to get healthier and slimmer. But this time I have the BEST support system and it's going to work. I am determined and all I have to do is not quit and beleive that progess will happen. Usually I get discouraged after a few days and that's because my goals are set to high and are just plain unachievable. My first goal is to lose 5% of my body weight. My current weight is 223.5lbs and 5% is 11.17lbs. That's a great goal..:) if I lose 2 pounds a week, that will take just under 6 weeks...I'll be happy with that I belive...:)

I went clothes shopping on Saturday with a good friend of mine, how is also being my support system. I had a GC for Reitman's for $175 from my hubby for xmas. And since I used it in Feb, I got an extra 10% and also they had a sale (buy one, get the 2nd at 50%) so I scored big time. I know these clothes will be too big for me soon enough, but I'm tired of being like a stuffed sauage in my jeans. And it's all good because I have someone who I can hand them down too, same friend who went shopping with me, so these clothes will get worn by others once they don't fit me anymore. Wow I can't wait for that day!

So here are my exercise goals:
weights - 3 times a week (M-W-F)
walk the dog - every day
Aquajogging - Wednesday eve

And here is extra when I can fit it in:
cardio at the gym (T-T)
Aquafit - Sunday Eve
one session of yoga a week minimum.

I think these goals are attainable...but I'm taking it one day at a time and I am going to be gentle on myself if I miss something....cuz I'm worth it!
