I started Weight Watchers!

  Hi friends! As the new year approached, I was noticing how uncomfortable I felt with my own body. I had only lost half of the baby weight I gained (which is totally normal, I know), and was also starting to gain weight slowly because I was in the habit of eating a little more than I should (due to having been pregnant, then breastfeeding, and also because while pregnant I was able to eat some of the foods I used to have allergies/sensitivities to. One of those things is gluten. So now I am eating cereal and bread and pasta (all the things I love), when I haven't eaten any of those carbs in three years.).

  About 3.5 years ago, I went on Weight Watchers after I had gained about 40lbs after I got married. I remember it working very well (I lost 35lbs with WW,  and then lost an additional 15-20lbs after I cut out gluten and most dairy). So I made the decision to start on WW again to help me lose the rest of the baby weight, and to help me with eating correct portions and more balanced meals.

  I started WW on Saturday, January 3rd. Aaaaannnnnd I forgot how challenging it can be in the first few weeks. Ive felt hungry pretty much constantly since I started (its only been 4 days). But once my stomach shrinks, and I find the right combo of foods to eat to keep me full, while staying within my allotted points for the day, I think I'll be just fine.

  My weigh in days are Saturday mornings. I'll keep you posted on how everything goes!

  I know a lot of people start their weight loss journeys at the beginning of the new year, so I decided to share mine with you to hopefully help support and encourage you. Lets do this together! Please share your plans and goals!

With love,
