I did it!

So this weekend was...surprisingly easy. I didn't crave pizza, or Cadbury Cream eggs, or Cadbury thins or any junk food AT ALL! I was amazed. Everyday the new plan just got easier and easier. We even went out to dinner twice this weekend and not once did I even consider faltering. Mexicali Rosa's Friday night was fun. I ordered the fajita chicken salad (was a little disappointed with the taste or lack of it) but it was exactly what I was allowed to have on the plan so I stuck to it. Even ordered water and didn't even touch the homemade yummy tortilla chips that are put in front of you as soon as you sit down. I did taste the salsa, which I am allowed to have but no chips for this girl.

Saturday we babysat my little 15 months old niece and we had the best time! We took her out and EVERYONE wanted to stop and tell her how cute she is! She loves people so much....and of course she loves attention, (must take after her aunt on that one). I stuck with my plan all weekend and I feel great! I didn't even once think about chocolate or cheating. Everyday gets easier and easier! My friend Sarah (who introduced me to the new plan) is away in Mexico but I can't wait for her to get home so I can tell her how I did on my WI!

Speaking of Weigh in..........

I was so excited this morning to get up and jump on the scale. I have simply stopped using my WW scale as it is SO NOT ACCURATE! Everytime you get on, it gives you a different number ranging anywhere between 2 whole for my mental health I am using my old scale. The one I had originally used when I started on WW. It is accurate and everytime you step on it, you get the same number. SO I got on this morning....and....

I was down 7 lbs! 7 lbs!!!!!!!!

I couldn't even believe my eyes! I was ecstatic! Granted this is the first week of the new plan and everyone says you lose the most on your first week, and only expect half or less of what you lost on the first week, on your second week but STILL! I remember my first week on WW I lost 5 lbs in one week and I was soo happy. This week I ate extremely healthy, fruit, veggies, chicken, high protein...just no flex points! It feels good to be in the 150s. Not just in the 150s...WELL into the 150s. I haven't been here since Junior High.

Well I just wanted to share my success with you all. Hope everyone's weekend was fantastic!!! Can't wait to read up on all your blogs!
