Fat Tuesday...guest post part 2

I am beginning to hate Tuesday.  I dread weighing in.  I eat crap and I know it.  I don't have time to exercise unless I want to give up sleep and I get so little of that already that wouldn't be smart.  I gained 1.6 pounds this week.  I sit here shaking my head as I type this.  If we could have a world with out bread I think I would be ok.

Here is another awesome installment and guest post from Beauty Sale Shopper about her amazing weight-loss.

Don't tell anyone....

That was my philosophy for the first 2-4 weeks on weight watchers.  So they saw me eating better.  It's not like this is the first time I'd tried to diet, right?  I was completely paranoid that if anyone figured out that I was serious this time they would be discouraging or try to sabotage my efforts.  Seriously, I knew the that the least bit of negativity would completely ruin it for me.  Feelings were hurt during this time period.  I had to decline lunch invites and not eat mom's cooking without explanation.  My biggest concern was a (now ex!!) boyfriend and his snotty know-it-all attitude.  For some reason, I did talk to him about it and you know what?  Everything I was doing was so wrong, according to him.  Hmmm, really?  Let me tell you what I was doing and what my results were and you can figure out just how much he knew.  Everyday I spent at least one hour at the gym, not including walking there and back.  Also, sticking to the weight watchers plan religiously and losing IN THE FIRST 4 WEEKS....13.8 POUNDS!!!

Now I know the first two entries on my guest post were pretty negative, but that's how it was the first month of this.  When friends started noticing and when my family saw that I was beyond serious this time they did something that I SHOULD HAVE expected, but DIDN'T.  THEY SUPPORTED ME.  Considering the journey I'd just begun...I was going to need it.

Until next weeks installment....
