A healthy example.

Doug and I started weight watchers and my mom jokingly said "so Bella's doing weight watchers too huh?" Since she's been eating what were eating and today she asked for yogurt and an orange since that's why we've had. I love what a great example we've been to her!
Before starting weight watchers I told Doug that I wanted to not only loose weight but I wanted to be a healthy example to Bella. I love how already our healthy habits are rubbing off on Bella. I love being a mom!

Weight Watchers!

So a few post ago I wrote about trying to get healthy and I'm proud to say I've actually been trying:) Doug and I did a 7 day cleanse called the "eat your heart out" cleanse. It was hard but we made it thru the week and I lost 8lbs. I of course gained almost 5 pounds the next day even though I started weight watchers the day after the cleanse. I was bummed to gain over half back BUT my #1 goal was to prove myself that I had will power and that I did!
My first week of weight watchers was actually a lot easier than I thought it would be. I never felt like I was deprived or on a "diet."
It's weird because I've tried counting calories but I never stuck to it AT ALL, but counting points is a breeze to me. It's like subconsciously I have a negative feeling about calories. Anyway today was my first week and my first weigh in and in soooo happy to report that I lost 3.6lbs!!! I know it's not much especially compared to the 8 on the cleanse but these are lbs that will stay off. We even celebrated Doug's birthday and I still lost weight! I feel on top of the world right now:) I did so well I even convinced Doug to join weight watchers too:)
Since Doug joined in he has been super supportive (except on his birthday lol) and we have come up with some fun new recipes, we've been measuring EVERYTHING! It's actually been pretty fun. My favorite recipe so far was the no guilt ice cream. It was blue bell no sugar vanilla ice cream, a banana, and 1/2 tbs of chocolate syrup. It was a total of three points and SOOO good! I can't wait for next weeks weigh in (I never though I'd say that) and then I can even report how Doug did!
Yay to a healthy family!
