So far, so good!

It's been about 4 days since I have been tracking WW points and writing down everything I eat and staying within my daily points AND working out on the elliptical and I am down about 3 lbs!

Isn't that insane?

My body always responds like that after I've been eating poorly and not working out for awhile. It's like I'm starting the whole weight loss journey all over again, since that is when you get the highest numbers.

It just goes to show that when you really do it, it really works! When you only kind of do it, it only kind of works. (I think that may be a Weight Watchers quote actually...)

And let me tell you, just seeing how quickly the pounds come off when I am being diligent and focusing on my weight loss goal is so extremely motivating! I actually get excited to step on the scale in the morning because I KNOW I've been "consistent" (see Ann's really inspiring post about being consistent!) and I KNOW it is going to be less than yesterday or at the very least, the same.

Losing motivation sucks and it's hard to get back on track, but like Nike says: Just do it!

Where are you guys at motivation-wise?

I get HUGE motivation from watching people whose journey's I care about hit a good patch and when they found successes and when I celebrate with them. I get a buzz and want to succeed too!
Great news, really great!
