I got my butt out of bed at 5 AM this morning and drove it an hour to go to the nearest 6:30 AM Weight Watchers meeting. I chose this meeting specifically because I had a sneaking suspicion it was the same leader as a meeting I attended last year. She'd only been the leader for my first two meetings, so I don't know if she was just filling in or what, but she was a big motivating factor for me, as she's close to my age, appears to be single and without kids, so I can relate. Most leaders are married with grown children...I don't have any children yet, so.... Plus this leader lost 130 lbs and looks great. Big motivator.
So I get there and lo and behold, it is her! I was very excited. I also quickly realized I was the youngest person in the meeting. Impressive, since I'm only a couple of years away from 40!
I got all signed up and weighed in and was relieved to see that my 3 days of focus have paid off to the tune of almost 6 pounds. I was at 344.4.
I'm probably going to head to the movies soon and see World War Z. I may even get a small popcorn. Though right now I'm not feeling the popcorn, as I ate lunch early (due to that 5 AM wake up time) and am pretty full!
As promised, pictures of some of my food from yesterday:
|My crazy potato, bread & butter pickle, and sun-dried tomato vinagrette green salad that I enjoyed for lunch yesterday.|
|A pretty blurry picture of the squash and orange bell pepper I chopped up prior to sauteeing them up with some onions and garlic to be used in my barbeque chicken & veg quesadillas that we dined on for dinner last night.|
|I'm so, so bad at remembering to take food photos, that I took this one halfway through eating my dinner last night. I apologize for the lack of photo gloriousness. These quesadillas were delish, though!|
I just used the leftover chicken and vegetables from last night on top of another salad today. It was an interesting combo...tonight will be a pretty boring dinner...some sausage, baked (or mashed) potatoes and some kind of veg....tbd.
