Default First week of Weight Watchers!

I just wanted to share my happiness with everyone - I lost 5 lbs my first week at Weight Watchers!!! I was ecstatic when the lady told me my weight for the week...and that was only 5 out of 30 counting the 25 I'd lost prior to joining! It only took me 3 weeks to lose the first 20, then the next 5 was a bit harder, but I kept on pressing on.

I feel like this is a great accomplishment, considering I had only expected to lose 1 or 2 lbs the first week of WW. Now I can't wait for my niece and I to take our monthly measurements...if the pounds are coming off, the inches must be too!! =]

Good job, Don't give up on weight watchers. I've been on it since the end of July, losing slow but very happy now and 39 pounds lighter.

Thanks cherbear, it was pretty exciting, and kind of funny too...my friend Kim who joined with me lost 4.6 lbs, while I lost 5.6. The director was joking about how everyone starves themselves on weigh-in day so they'll weigh less. I nodded and told Kim that I hadn't eaten lunch or dinner yet - not on purpose, but because I was so busy. She told me she had eaten dinner before she came. When we were handed our bookmarks, and I got a star for the first 5 lbs, Kim mumbled under her breath, "Damn them hotdogs..." LOL!!

Thanks for the advice Susan...I plan on sticking with it - it gives me something to look forward to, and makes me more conscious of what I eat and how much I work out, honestly because I don't want to be shamed by weighing in heavier than the week before, lol! Hey, whatever works! LOL!

Thanks Chris! I'm really glad I found this website - there are so many good people here who are all going through the same ordeal. I find it hard to relate to my friends who're thin, and incredibly, my heavy friends, some heavier than I, tell me they don't care anything about losing weight - they even act as if they resent me for trying...but I know it's all an act. If anything, they envy me for having the initiative to do something about MY weight...hopefully once they see my progress, I'll inspire them to do the same!
