Is Patience truly a virtue?

Okay. So here I am in Week Three of my Weight Watchers journey and I have only lost 3 pounds. Well, 2.7 to be exact.  According to Weight Watchers, it's a good thing. A slow weight loss is a lasting weight loss.

Looking back to prior attempts with Weight Watchers, the first month was always the most difficult for me. It's the whole transition thing. You know, it's not really a's a lifestyle. My motivation is the Spring and Summer. I didn't go to the beach at all last year because I just couldn't stand the thought of myself in a bathing suit.

That was rock bottom, my friends. Rock. Bottom.

Time for a change. A good change. Time to be held accountable. Time to sit up and take a good long look at that person in the mirror. Who IS that? I almost don't recognize her anymore.

But I will. Just give me time. And patience. Lots and lots of patience. It didn't take me overnight to look like this, and it's not going to come off overnight either.  

I tracked all my points yesterday. It was a good day. Tuesday is weigh-in day and my Weight Watchers "buddy" Karen treated us both to a new Weight Watchers cookbook.

Don't worry....I'll share all my recipes with you! Today I started off with my usual 1/2 cup of oatmeal, only today I added a small scoop of all natural Better n' Peanut Butter. 

I read about this in Eating Well magazine and finally found it at Whole Foods.

If you like peanut butter, you'll love this!  Two tablespoons of low-fat peanut butter is 5 points plus with Weight Watchers.  Two tablespoons of Better n' Peanut Butter is only 2 points. It doesn't sound like a big deal.....but when you are counting points IT IS!!  Try it!!  

So breakfast today was Oatmeal - 2 points
          Better n' Peanut Butter -     2 points
                                                                                    Coffee -  2 points
                                                                                                   6 points

Now I'm off to ride my bike for 30 minutes or so before I have to leave for work.......ACTIVITY POINTS!!!!!   Have a great day!
