Down 2lbs and sticking with it!

Sunday was the start of my third week on Weight Watchers and I'm down two pounds!  It may not seem like a lot, but I've sucked at working out so this is mostly just from eating right.  I've also cut back a good deal on my weekend drinking which I think is helping.  I allow myself a few glasses of wine or a few under 100 calories cocktails and sip them slowly.

I am anxious to get to that first 10lb loss or to see that my clothes are starting to fit a little differently.  I went shopping this weekend and I'm obviously still in the same size but things aren't as tight as they once were.

I've noticed that my cravings for many of my favorite junk foods (chips, chocolate, chipotle, a nice Wendy's cheeseburger) have for the most part gone away.  I have let myself have a WW ice cream bar a few nights a week after dinner, but since they are the size of the palm of my hand and only two points, I don't feel bad about it.

My body is still adjusting though to this lifestyle change and not to make anyone say "TMI" but, my stomach has had problems adjusting to eating so many veggies and maybe a little more fiber than normal.  And that's all I'm going to say about that.

So what is my goal?  I don't think I've really talked about this before but here is the down and dirty:

Starting Weight: 180
Current Pant Size: 14
Current Top Size: Mostly XL
Current Weight: 179
Goal Weight: 145
Goal Pant Size: between an 8 and 10
Goal Top Size: No more XL, I've got some girls so I would be happy to wear a large again

And my current motivation:

Awesome! That's so good! I'm also down two pounds in three weeks, so let's keep it off together!

I've decided not to worry about my ultimate goal, but to focus on one pound at a time. So each time I lose one I'm going to think, "Great! Now one more!" Hopefully that will make it less discouraging, because I have a long way to go.
