Wednesday morning, my first weigh in at Weight Watchers. Drum roll please... I am three and a half pounds lighter. Weight Watchers is now based on a daily food point system, each individual is accessed and given a number according to age, height and weight. My magical number is twenty-six, meaning a point value is given to each meal and snack throughout the day totaling no more than twenty-six points. Keeping hydrated (six bottles of water daily) and walking 10,000 steps a day is key... with any additional exercise a plus...

I have given myself three months to reach my goal weight. Weight Watchers considers losing one to two pounds per week being right on track. I have pounds to lose with miles to cover, but I am focused on completing this goal. If you too are trying to lose a few pounds and have advice or tips to offer, I would be more than happy to hear from you!
