Weigh-in day! I've lost 4 pounds in my first week, hooray!

Have to admit, have felt pretty crap most of the week. Yesterday was the worst. I am trying to spread my points more evenly now and drink more water - I think my body has been detoxing or something. We'll see how it goes next week.

But yay! 4 pounds!

I started doing WW last week Thursday. I'm not attending meetings or anything, but I have the book and the recipe books and Rebecca is very supportive and thre to help me with advice and to talk about it and she'll be checking up on my weight every Wednesday. I'm enjoying it so far - appeals to the control freak in me! The recipes are really good. I'm a bit annoyed that I'm only allowed 19 points a day, but so far I'm managing to make them work.

Oh, I forgot to mention I've hurt my knee (sitting with my leg twisted under me while at the computer) so that's why I've stopped exercising for now. I plan to lift weights though.

Starting weight last Thursday: 11st 7lb.

Exercise: yesterday instead of driving to fetch Daniel from school I walked, pushing the buggy. Over 2 miles round trip.
Other: bought a pair of shoes and a skirt.

Weight: don't know what it is now, but a few days ago it was 72.2kg - 13.2kg to go (0.8kg lost). When I shot the wedding with Natasha on Saturday she commented that I had lost weight (so have a couple of other people).
Water: appalling ... must get on track!
Eating: still can't taste anything due to bad sinus infection. I'm well now, but apparently it can take months for nerves to renew?! Tonight Noah was hassling at bedtime and I had the strongest craving for pudding / cake / custard / ice cream - purely emotional eating which I resisted. For meals I've been eating Weight Watchers meals some of the time.
Exercise: tonight, even though I was shattered, I did 2.3 miles on the treadmill while watching CSI (40 minutes). I feel really proud of myself. I mainly walked, but ran for a couple of minutes a couple of times.
Other: bought my hair straighteners! Need to get a haircut, must book that.
