Week One Weigh In

So, I lost 2.4 pounds this week.  I was a little disappointed at first.  I was hoping for 3-4 pounds, since I have so much to lose.  But I guess I *am* nursing, so I will take it and be thankful. :)

So far WW is going really, really well for me.  Because I'm nursing I get extra points, and it's more than enough.  Almost every day I have a few left over, which is good because I can't measure exactly how much cream the coffee shop adds to my coffee, you know?  So there's a little bit of a buffer.

I do need to research some more meal and snack ideas.  I also want to try this recipe for Detox Water:

2 lemons
1/2 cucumber
10-12 mint leaves
3 quarts water
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Chill Time: Overnight or 8 hours
Yields: 10-12 glasses
1. Slice cucumber and lemons.  Place in the bottom of the pitcher.   Toss in mint leaves. Add water
2. Chill overnight or for at least 8 hours. 

I need to get the ingredients at the store, and hopefully I can do that this weekend.

So far, so good!

  1. Just hopped on the computer and saw your update post on my reader - yay!! I'm so glad you're feeling up to starting exercise...boy is it ever something you have to work up to, isn't it?? It took me a good solid 3 months before I could start.

    Weight Watchers is AWESOME; I think you'll do really well with it!! Keep up the good work, sometimes I tell myself that it doesn't matter how or what, if I can just MOVE in some way every single day it will push me in the right direction.
