3 weeks

So we are back from vacation and I am finishing up day 4 in a row of counting points. It's been a rough month for counting points but I am so happy to be back.
I read an interesting article today in the doctors office about losing weight, it said that fad diets work only because you lose water weight at first. I think we all know that but it went on to say that you don't actually start losing fat until around week three. It motivated me to think of weight watchers differently than counting points when it is convenient. To continue losing I need to step it up and stick with it. So much easier to type than actually do.
We have a big Music Festival coming up in three weeks where I will run into so many people so that is great motivation to stick with it for at least the next three weeks.
Do you need a goal or upcoming event to motivate you or is the lose enough?


  1. We have a biggest loser final weigh in coming up soon. That's my motivation right now! That is interesting about losing fat on week 3. Makes sense and good to know! I have to do better about counting points too.

  2. My motivation is I have a wedding to attend on the 4th of Sept. I'm taking it easy till Wed when I weigh in again, and then it's on big time.

    Thanks for sharing!

  3. Hey Lauren! I don't know why I didn't have both of your blogs back in blog roll. I lost my entire list a while back & forgot to put them back in. Anyways, I started Weight Watchers about 3 weeks ago & I'm working hard at sticking with it. I've lost 7 lbs. so far & I went back to the gym for the first time last week. I'm gonna try girl! Going to look back on this blog for motivation :)
