I'll just call this one Weigh In #1

I'm participating in the Looking Fine in 2009 Challenge over at The Daily Mish-Mash. My diet of choice, Weight Watchers.

The question of the week posted on the Challenge page...what songs get you pumped up to move?
My workouts are all DVD or Zumba class, so the music is preselected, but at Zumba I love it when we do a routine to a Gwen Stefani song. If I were making a walking mix, I'd probably have several Barenaked Ladies tunes, some upbeat showtunes(yes, I am a dork) and a ton of 80's music(yes, I am a dork who is stuck in the 80's).

Sooo. this first week on the challenge was a good one!

At my Thursday night WW weigh-in I had lost 4 pounds(it had been two weeks since my last WW weigh in). This morning I weighed and believe it or not, another 3 pounds were gone! WooHoo!

What did I do this week that I haven't been doing for the past several months?
  • I tracked my food and points.
  • I exercised at least four days during the week.
  • I limited myself to only one regular Coke each day(reg. Coke is my downfall so drinking only one is HUGE).
  • I tried harder than I have in some time.
Yay me!

You go girl!
That is awesome. Dr. Pepper is my weakness. Diet is okay, until I have a regular. oy.

Keep it up, keep itup! ;-)

Yay you! And, you know, you could always switch to Diet Coke. [insert snort here] (I think diet soda is crap and does not compare to the real thing at all.)
