My Weight Loss Journey Begins

Just over six weeks ago, I rejoined Weight Watchers after many years away due to medical issues.

The last time I joined Weight Watchers, I have to admit, I didn’t really change a lot about how I ate. I still ate pre-packaged foods, and things that weren’t really great for me, I just found ways to get the most out of my points. And at the time, it worked, but it didn’t change my eating habits, which is probably why I regained so much more weight.

This time around, I’m changing everything about how I eat. I ‘m eating few pre-packaged foods and concentrating more on eating fresh, whole foods. I am also staying away from the low fat, no fat, sugar-free foods which are loaded with things that are probably not any better for me than their high fat counterparts. I’ve also cut back significantly on things like potatoes, pastas, bread, and rice…all staples of my former diet.

So far, I’m not feeling significantly better, but as of Monday (my weekly weigh in day), I have lost 17.1 pounds, so I feel like I’m doing well. That being said, I have 118.9 to go until I reach my goal, so I have a long journey ahead of me. I still need to get more active, I’ve been doing it gradually, but I’ve started, and that is what is important.

Part of the reason I started blogging, other than to share some of the things I love, was to also share my weight loss journey, and to keep me inspired so that I don’t get discouraged along the way.

 

Life, Tea, and Everything


You may be asking yourself, what is this blog all about. In truth it’s all in the title…Life, Tea, and Everything.

I recently started a weight loss journey and I wanted somewhere to be able to share my successes, and my failures, as I try to get healthier, and learn to make healthier choices for myself. In fact, I’m celebrating a success today! Today was my 6 week weigh in. Over the past 6 weeks I have lost 4.2 pounds for a total of 17.1 pounds, and I hit just a little over my short term 5% goal.

I also wanted a place to share my obsession with tea, and my love of books, crafts, my furbaby, travel, and anything else that may come to mind.

I’m still making decisions on how this will all work but I hope if you have stumbled upon this page, that you will find something that you enjoy!
