Ladies and Gentlemen, I can now give you a first person testimony that Weight Watchers works! After my first full week, I weighed in on Saturday night and I had lost 7 pounds! WHOO HOO! I am very excited about this small triumph because it encourages me to continue on knowing that this new "lifestyle" is going to work for me. Of course, they say you drop the most in your first week because of the drastic change in eating and drinking water that takes place so I do not expect to loose 7 pounds every week...although, one can dream.
I am continuing to find motivation in God. I know that he wants me to take care of my temple so that I can be a vessel that he can continue to use for years to come...if that be His will. Also, I continue to find motivation in being honest with myself that I don't feel well. My joints have begun to hurt and it's harder and harder to get up and down. Honestly, those things are hard to admit because they are embarrassing but I needed to say them because I have been in denial about how I have really felt for so long. But now, just this past week, I can already tell a difference in my energy level. Now, whether this is a "mind over matter" situation or not, I'm still excited and looking forward to the day that I can get up and down with ease and not fear physical activities.
