My First WW Weigh In

Happy Weigh In Wednesday Everyone! For those of you stopping by from Erin and Alex' link up - welcome to Being Bailey J and I will be around to see how ya'll did this week by the end of the day!
PS. There is only 2 days left to enter my giveaway (and its pretty awesome) so head over HERE to enter!



First things first, if you follow my facebook page (which you should - go like it!) I posted my very first (this time around) Weight Watchers Weigh In on Monday! I wanted to wait to share it in this post but I was too excited. So those of you who follow my FB got the news first - last Monday I started WW at 233lbs and this week I weighed in at 228.8 with a 4.2lb loss. I'm so excited!



The thing is, I would be more excited about the same loss had I done better. I had a good week but I could've stayed on plan more, logged a bit better and hit the gym an extra time or two. This week I'm going to work on those things - no excuses and hopefully have another great loss! I really wanna get out of that 226-230 area I've been in since I gained the weight back - that's when I will feel like I'm actually headed in a good direction. I feel that way now though - no complaints so far about WW!



Another exciting thing in the Weight Loss world happened last night but wasn't so much about me. After a blog post about joining WW, a friend of a friend suggested I start a weigh in in my community. I wanted to do this because there is no WW here and in HS when I did WW I LOVED the sense of community and accountability I received from the meetings. So when she suggested it I thought - why not - lets make it happen and last night was the first weigh in.

It all happened so quick, I organized it and put it together and didn't have much planned so I was a bit nervous as I waited at the location. I made it drop in style to give people some time to work around their busy schedules. I was a bit disappointed with the turn out but was happy anyone came at all. Around here it takes time for things to catch on and I know people lead busy lives, itsa kinda just the way it is so I wasn't too let down. I'm hoping it catches on and builds and that we can turn it into something fun. If I help anyone at all I'll be happy -  helping people with health and weight loss is definitely something I would consider looking into for a future career so maybe this will help me figure that out.

Before I head out I would like to bring something up to those of you, wherever you are, who are trying to lose weight and possibly those of you with a competitive streak! I have joined 2 weight loss challenges with a random, awesome group of women on FB (none of whom I know in person) in the last 6 months and have loved it. Here is what MC, the creator of the challenges has to say about it :

I will share the event on my blogs facebook page and my person fb page just in case! Hope someone of you are interested! Lose weight AND get paid to do it? Count this chick in.

Hope everyone is having a fabulous week on and off the scales! Wish me luck on my 2nd week of WW. They always say you don't do so hot the 2nd week but I say stfu - this is like my millionth week trying to lose weight aha. So classy.

Big Love,
Bailey

Ps. I saw this on pinterest and loved it. It's so true. Do things that make you happy because waiting for someone else to can be real disappointing. :)
