Congrats on the starting Weight Watchers - and a BIGGER congrats on 1 week not smoking! I quite smoking in March 2009 - oh my gosh, I can't believe it'll be 2 years already! I smoked a pack a day for over 10 years, so believe me it wasn't easy, but it was (and is) sooooo worth it. I'm not sure how much cigarettes are in your area, but I had estimated I spent about $7 a day going to get cigarettes(lighters, gum, change that gets lost). I started transferring that amount of money every morning for not smoking the day before. That was $200 going into my savings account just from not smoking - not to mention the health benefits. It's not always easy, but you can totally do it! Just don't pick it up!

I'm doing Weight Watchers. I really like the program, but of course, my first weigh-in was the first day of my period (sorry T.M.I. lol) but it was so incredibly frustrating to go up .2 lbs the first week when I was so good with staying within my points every single day!! I just had to tell myself to keep the faith, and it will pay off eventually!! I think I'm down about 5 lbs since the new year now, which sounds like a lot, but really I have alot to lose. At least my pants fit a bit better.
I love winter because I'm a naval orange addict and they're in season so its a good time for me to start this process.
I'm re-learning how to eat since this needs to be a life-change for me, not a pre-wedding diet. Now I'll need to start learning how to stick with being more active a few times a week!
I'm also one week without a cigarette so it's life-change time! (LOVE the e-cig for any of you smokers out there!)
