Reflections: Point-Counting Bliss, Week One

Bad news.  Starting weight.  172.  Ugh.

Good news.  I only have 17 pounds to lose.  My goal weight is 155.  I realize that for some of you this is your crawl-in-a-hole-and-die weight.  But this is my 5'9" frame's ideal weight.  Teacher Jan says so.

More bad news.  I just returned from my first week's weigh-in and lost .2 pounds.  I ingested carrots like they were going out of style and covered more asphalt than Forest Gump, yet a .2 pound loss is all I have to show for it.  POINT. FLIPPING. TWO.

Teacher Jan says not to give up and that my body could be adjusting to the increase in fiber and water and just needs another week.  But I think this is what they say to all the fatties.  She also asked if I needed help with my Point Finder calculating slide to be sure that the values I am assigning to my foods are right.  No, Jan.  GOT IT.  Thanks.

Until next week...
