So, today it all starts! After being sick for three weeks with a NASTY cold I finally feel like I have energy and best yet…I can breathe!
For my weight loss I am going to try a number of methods. I am using the Weight Watchers points to keep my portions and intake under control and I am going to try to “juice” it for two of my meals for the next two weeks. Based on Kimberly’s research, I will be using the Naked Green Machine juice.
I ran a calculator of how many points I am allowed and my first week is 25 per day. Man that sounds like a lot until you start adding foods to it! The “GREEN MACHINE” is 3.8 points a serving.
One of my roadblocks during this journey is my caffeine and migraines. My body is used to caffeine so I am going to have to ween myself off it of endure some major pain, which will have me down for 1-2 days per migraine. YEA ME!
So today, it start with a weigh in and a Pepsi. Not my usual 44 oz of Sonic Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper each morning – just a 12 oz can of Pepsi. This alone will save me $25 in soda purchases! (Of course I already did the math of savings — that’s just me, looking to save money!)
The weigh in today was 162 and I am only going to publish my weight each Monday morning. Hopefully we will see a difference next Monday (which is my daughter’s Sweet 16!).
Alright, I am sacrificing 4.5 points for the Pepsi to stave off the migraines. Let’s see how we do! (Did you notice we added a Weight Watchers calculator on the site for you to easily calculate your points?)
